Famous actress Eva Longoria choose the perfect time to reveal that she was expecting a new baby with husband Jose Baston: 1st of January 2018. She took to Instagram to share a cute pic of her growing belly on which numerous hands can be seen, all belonging to her friends, family, and husband.
Her caption read: "New year, new adventures! I’m so grateful to my beautiful family for giving this new baby so much love already! #HappyNewYear #2018". What better way to celebrate the coming of a new year than with a pregnancy reveal?
Ps. Absolutely love her attire at this party!
Probably the queen of all things when it comes to the entertainment industry, Beyonce also claimed the title of the most awaited pregnancy confirmation ever when she chose to reveal that she and husband Jay-Z were going to have a pair of twins back in February 2017. Rumi and Sir Carter took part in one of the most famous photo shoots even before they were out of their mommy’s equally famous belly. Bey looked like a goddess sitting between flowers with a veil over her head and caressing her growing belly.
Her caption read: “We would like to share our love and happiness. 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. - The Carters”. That’s how you do a pregnancy reveal everyone!
3. Olivia Wilde
Famous actress Olivia Wilde chose one of the cutest ways to announce her new pregnancy back in 2016. She posed with her growing baby bump alongside her older daughter Daisy Josephine Sudeikis and published a caption that read: “Matching baby bumps.” It was definitely the talk of the town at the time mostly because of how cute this reveal was. Definitely, a nice idea to ask one of your older kids to help you reveal the coming of their baby brother or sister. In Olivia’s case, it was a baby brother named Otis Alexander Sudeikis.
4. Jessica Simpson
Speaking of enlisting the help of older sisters to make a pregnancy announcement, it seems that actress and singer Jessica Simpson also did this a while back in 2012, when she announced that she was expecting a baby boy named Ace Knute Johnson. She asked big sister Maxwell to do the hard work and everyone fell in love with this pregnancy reveal. Her caption read: “Merry Christmas from my family to yours!” because the time of the year and the outfit of her daughter allowed it. Certainly a witty and cute way of letting everyone know that you have a bun in the oven.
5. Gwen Stefani
Singer Gwen Stefani announced in a very cute way that she was expecting her and her ex-husband’s third son back in 2014. Sadly, they divorced a year later but Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale still remained the star of this inspired announcement. Gwen even made fun of her only-girl status in her family by captioning the pic: “I was ready to hand over the crown. but I guess I am still queen of the house. ”. This can certainly act as inspiration for a future mom who knows that she will stay the only female presence in her family aka the Queen.
When singer Fergie announced that she was expecting her first baby with ex-husband Josh Duhamel back in 2013, she did it in a very unique way. She photoshopped two old pictures of the two of them as babies with her holding a kitten meant to represent baby Axl. Her caption read: “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! ”. For sure nobody will see this kind of announcement coming and you will all make some waves in your circle of friends.
Best pregnancy reveal ideas to husband and family
In case you are still out of ideas to announce your loved ones that you are a mom-to-be, here are some cute and easy ideas for you to try out:
1. Spell it out
Use some kind of chalk, magnetic, or light board to tell your family that you are expecting using letters and words. You can come up with clever plays upon words, add your sonogram photo or pregnancy test, or even your cat to make things more interesting. You will definitely surprise them a lot more than by actually telling them the news.
2. Small accessories
Another cute idea would be to add one extra small accessory to those that you actually use and belong to you and your husband. Add one extra pair of shoes, gloves, or use your hobbies and add one more tennis racquet, movie ticket, console controller etc. You can take a picture of this arrangement and send it to all of your family and friends to surprise them. They will never forget it.
3. Mom and dad
This means that you can also use your clothes to announce everyone of your new future status: mom and dad. For example, you can wear a pair of those specially-made t-shirts with representative messages or paint the back of your hoodies to inform everyone that you are expecting. You will come across as two proud future parents.
4. Funny approaches
Finally, if you are completely out of ideas but still want to announce everyone that you are expecting, resort to the funny side of things. For example, come up or search for a good baby joke and send it to everyone. You can also make your husband play the role of the pregnant wife and have him deliver the big news in a funny way. Your close ones will certainly appreciate your humor.
To sum it all up, these celebrity pregnancy reveals are cool and funny, but they may not be for everyone, which is why we have also proposed some other ideas that you can use to announce that you’re expecting. You should know that there is no right or wrong way to do this. You have to feel it and do it from your soul with joy and gratitude. This is why you can choose the alternative that best suits you. Go for funny messages, cute pictures or anything else that makes you happy with your reveal. Don’t forget that, in a few years, your child will most likely ask you about it and you will have to explain how much happiness you felt while delivering this message to the world. The pregnancy reveal is one of the biggest first steps of any journey towards a new life. Make it special. Make it personal.
