Baby, oh baby! Who doesn’t love to hear that a precious bundle of joy is on the way to make the world a little brighter? It’s undeniably life-affirming, and celebrity pregnancy announcements are especially fun because we all get to follow along. Plus, we all feel invested in our favorite Hollywood couples — it’s only natural that we celebrate their baby news right along with them. And since so many celebrities choose to share their pregnancy news with fans, we all get to gush over memorable pregnancy announcement moments pretty frequently.
Some stars have basically captured the zeitgeist of current pop culture (Beyoncé’s floral, veiled revelation about her pregnancy with twins Rumi and Sir springs to mind). A lot of stars choose to share videos announcing their pregnancies, sometimes far enough in to have the video double as a gender reveal — Kate Hudson finding out she was finally having a little girl could put a smile on anyone’s face. Many celebrities choose to go with funny reveals, like Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert. The Bachelor Nation alums shared the big news in May 2020 that they’re expecting their third child together with a funny Instagram photo.
So, join us in going (goo-goo and) gaga over some of the best, funniest, sweetest and downright cutest celebrity pregnancy announcements.
Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom
Katy Perry took fans by surprise when she unveiled her pregnancy in the March 2020 music video for “Never Worn White.” She confirmed the news in a follow-up Instagram Live, revealing of her pregnancy cravings that she “literally never cared for spice and now I have to carry Tabasco sauce in my purse.”
Beyonce & Jay-Z
In what is arguably the most iconic celebrity pregnancy announcement ever, Beyoncé made a major statement with a chic photo shoot in 2017 to tell fans she was expecting twins with husband Jay-Z.
Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson
Jessica Simpson recruited kids Maxwell and Ace in 2018 to help her reveal not only that she was expecting a third child but also that the child would be a little girl!
Danielle Fishel & Jensen Karp
When Girl Meets World star Danielle Fishel broke the news in 2019 that she and husband Jensen Karp were expecting their first child together, she pulled in some precious props: two pairs of adult sneaks and one tiny scene-stealing pair of baby Nikes.
Ayesha & Stephen Curry
Um, hello, where was Ayesha Curry’s “Preggers” announcement t-shirt when we were expecting? It, like her, is super-cute.
Hilary Duff & Matthew Koma
In June 2018, Hilary Duff and now-husband Matthew Koma shared a sweet photo showing off her baby bump — and letting fans in on the fact they were going to have a “little princess.”
Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
We could watch this 2017 video of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s daughter Luna pointing out the “baby” in her mama’s belly at least 100 times. And now little Miles is on the outside charming the world!
Kate Hudson & Danny Fujikawa
Kate Hudson and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa decided to break their pregnancy news and gender reveal in one fell swoop with a home video, and their reaction tugs right on the heartstrings.
Carrie Underwood & Mike Fisher
It’s wild to think it’s been almost six years since Carrie Underwood announced her first pregnancy “in honor of ‘Labor’ Day.” Of course, she asked big siblings — pups Ace and Penny — to assist in breaking the big news.
Eva Longoria & José Bastón
We’re not sure whose hands were resting on Eva Longoria’s making-its-debut baby bump in her reveal post, but this much is certain — her baby was destined to come into the world surrounded by love.
Pink & Carey Hart
The world now knows and adores Pink and Carey Hart’s son Jameson Moon. But back in 2016, the singer was just making it known that they were expecting a second child. She broke the news with a beautiful photo featuring her baby bump and daughter Willow.
America Ferrera & Ryan Piers Williams
America Ferrera and husband Ryan Piers Williams announced their first pregnancy in 2017 with a New Year’s Eve post featuring (what else?) goofy glasses and a cute “mas besos” onesie.
Olivia Wilde & Jason Sudeikis
To clue fans into her pregnancy with daughter Daisy in 2016, Olivia Wilde and son Otis showed off their “matching baby bumps.” Adorable!
Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake
How has it been five years since Justin Timberlake planted a kiss on Jessica Beil’s baby bump, thereby telling the world they were expecting? Their son Silas is perhaps even cuter than we expected him to be, which didn’t seem possible.
Hillary Scott & Chris Tyrrell
Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and husband Chris Tyrrell didn’t just announce the pregnancy of one little girl in 2017 — they announced the pregnancy of two! Their twins Emory JoAnn and Betsy Mack would soon after join big sis Eisele Kaye.
Shay Mitchell & Matte Babel
First of all, Shay Mitchell couldn’t have looked like more of a goddess in her bump-revealing pregnancy photo. But her caption was perfection, to boot: “Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?”
Ali Fedotowsky & Kevin Manno
When Bachelor Nation’s Ali Fedotowsky wanted to let the world know she and husband Kevin Manno were adding another baby to their brood, they posted a gorgeous black-and-white photo of big sis Riley pointing at Mama’s belly.
Fergie & Josh Duhamel
It’s a little sad to think back on this memory in light of their later split. Still, how frickin’ cute was it when Fergie shared composite baby photos of her and then-husband Josh Duhamel to announce their “lovely baby bump”?
Jessica Alba & Cash Warren
Big sisters Honor and Haven seemed to have a blast helping mom Jessica Alba drop the big news that their family was growing by one! Little brother Hayes has rounded out the crew.
Khloé Kardashian & Tristan Thompson
These days, we all get to enjoy Khloé Kardashian’s precious photos of daughter True Thompson. Back in 2017, though, she was sharing this stunning black-and-white photo of then-partner Tristan Thompson cradling her bump.
Kristin Cavallari & Jay Cutler
Despite their recent split, Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler have three beautiful children to show for their marriage. They announced the last, daughter Saylor, with a sweet photo featuring tiny pink Converse.
Jenny Mollen & Jason Biggs
Leave it to Jason Biggs and wife Jenny Mollen to make their pregnancy reveal hilarious! The couple posted a funny photo illustrating how they told their son babies are made.
Joanna & Chip Gaines
It came as a big surprise to fans when home design gurus Chip and Joanna Gaines announced they were expecting their fifth child. Of course, Chip kept the announcement funny and light by showing off his own swollen belly.
Danielle & Kevin Jonas
They win the most relatable pregnancy announcement award! Kevin Jonas and wife Danielle shared a photo of him re-reading What to Expect When You’re Expecting — while she indulged her cravings with snacks galore.
Jamie Lynn Spears & Jamie Watson
As 2017 drew to a close, Jamie Lynn Spears revealed her big plans for 2018: a second child! She and husband Jamie Watson (along with big sis Maddie) shared their pregnancy news with a dreamy forest photoshoot.
Nikki Reed & Ian Somerhalder
Nikki Reed wrote what was essentially a love letter to her unborn child to announce she and Ian Somerhalder were expecting their first little one. And that photo? #Goals.
Kelly Rowland & Tim Weatherspoon
Another baby sneaker announcement FTW! Kelly Rowland gave fans a sneak peek at her future baby’s footwear, writing, “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy.”
Ciara & Russell Wilson
Ciara used her birthday in 2016 as an opportunity to share news about her greatest gift yet: a baby with husband Russell Wilson.
Danneel & Jensen Ackles
Not everyone uses sneakers to break the news! Supernatural star Jensen Ackles and wife Danneel revealed they were expecting twins by adding a few new pairs of cowboy boots to their lineup.
Ashley Graham & Justin Ervin
Is it just us, or could Ashley Graham and husband Justin Ervin not get any cuter if they tried?! These two announced their first child back in August 2019, and they welcomed son Isaac on January 18, 2020.
Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale
It kind of feels like a million years ago that Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were a thing, right? But we know that can’t be, because in 2014 they revealed they were expecting a third child: another boy. “I was ready to hand over the crown, but I guess I am still queen of the house,” she joked.
