It will come to no one’s surprise that Rihanna had perhaps the most epic pregnancy announcement of all time. The iconic superstar wowed audiences worldwide when she revealed her baby bump during her Super Bowl halftime performance in Feb. 2023.
It’s going to be hard for future mamas-to-be to top that!
Sports reporter Ashley Washburn tweeted, “Rihanna announcing her pregnancy was not on my #SuperBowlLVII bingo card, but I am SO here for it,” and we could not agree more.
This will be her second child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky. Last May, the couple welcomed a baby boy. His name is still under wraps, but now we can start calling him Big Bro!
Nope star Keke Palmer made the jaw-dropping announcement that she’s expecting her first child during her Saturday Night Live debut. “There’s some rumors going around; people have been in my comments saying, ‘Keke’s having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’ and I wanna set the record straight — I am!” Palmer said, fashionably ripping open a her gray jacket to reveal her baby bump.
Palmer is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Darius Jackson, whom she’s been dating since 2021.
Sharna Burgess took to Instagram to share a photo of the exact moment she discovered she was pregnant. The Dancing with the Stars pro, who is expecting a baby with partner Brian Austin Green, looks sweetly emotional in the snapshot.
“I was in shock and still trying to process that this was real,” she captioned the picture. “It felt weird taking a photo in that moment but I’m glad I did.”
Jessica Biel revealed her pregnancy on Instagram through an adorable photo of husband Justin Timberlake kissing her bare baby bump. In 2015, Biel gave birth to son Silas Randall, named after the singer’s grandfather and great-grandfather.
“This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT,” Timberlake wrote alongside the pregnancy photo. “#BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets.”
Jessica Alba shared the exciting news that she was expecting a third child by posting an adorable video of the whole family holding numbered balloons.
“@cash_warren and I are officially going to be outnumbered #babyonboard #herewegoagain 👶🏼🤰🏽#blessed🙏,” she wrote. Hayes Alba Warren was born in 2018 and Alba introduced her newborn to the world through a sweet photo on Instagram.
It’s really hard to beat Kirsten Dunst’s gorgeous pregnancy reveal. In 2018, the actress posed for a Rodarte photoshoot, wearing an embroidered tulle gown and looking all kinds of ethereal. She gave birth to her son Ennis Howard Plemons that same year, with husband Jesse Plemons.
Nothing compares to Cardi B’s 2021 pregnancy annoucement. The rapper posed in the nude on Instagram, covered in white paint, holding her baby bump.
The picture pulled in more than 14 million likes and Cardi B gave birth to her daughter Kulture one month after the portrait was posted.
It wouldn’t be a pregnancy reveal list without mentioning Beyonce. The singer broke the internet in 2017 when she revealed her pregnancy through a gorgeous photoshoot featuring tons of flowers and maternity lingerie.
“We would like to share our love and happiness,” she wrote on Instagram. “We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes.”
In 2016, Olivia Wilde broke the exciting news that she was expecting her daughter Daisy by posting a playful black and white shot of herself clutching her pregnant belly, alongside son Otis.
“Matching baby bumps. ✌️ ” she wrote.
In February 2022, Rihanna announced that she was expecting a baby with her partner A$AP Rocky. The singer posted a series of photos of herself wearing a bright pink winter jacket, which revealed her baby bump. “How the gang pulled up to black history month,” she captioned the post.
It was the first of many showstopping maternity outfits that Rihanna would rock throughout her pregnancy — from a shredded green top to a sheer gown.
