If you’re in your twenties or thirties, your Facebook and Instagram feeds are populated with plenty of pregnancy announcements.
Tiny pairs of sneakers or onesies dot picture after picture as you scroll. But these celeb couples took it to the next level when they announced their impending arrivals, and we love their creativity. Here are just a few of our favorite celebrity baby announcements:
Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
Jessica and Cash announced the arrival of baby number three with this adorable boomerang. Daughters Honor and Haven held balloons that read “1” and “2” while mom held one with the number “3” on it.
Jason and Brittany Aldean
The couple don matching “Baby Mama” and “Baby Daddy” shirts as they pose in front of pink and blue balloons, but the most important part of the picture? Their open oven, which is filled with a hamburger bun. Get it? Bun in the oven. Quite clever, you two. We love this pun-filled announcement.
Beyonce and Jay-Z
In what might be the most Internet-breaking pregnancy announcement of all time, Queen Bey is draped in a green veil, showing off her bare baby belly, with an elaborate wall of flowers behind her. It’s been recreated and often imitated, but nothing compares to the original image, which earned more than 11 million likes on Instagram.
Ryan Lochte and Kayla Rae Reid
These two announced their pregnancy in an appropriately-themed announcement. Ryan is seeing kissing his soon-to-be-wife’s baby belly underwater as they share the happy news with their fans.
Michael and Nicole Phelps
The Olympic swimmer and his wife announced their second pregnancy with help from their adorable son Boomer. In the shot, the little boy looks truly ecstatic about the prospect of becoming a big brother.
We love these creative and sweet ways to tell the world that our favorite celebs are about to become parents.
