Sure, some celebrities like to keep their personal lives a secret. But these mommies-to-be shared their exciting baby news in the best ways ever!
1. Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman had gossips giddy when she debuted what looked like a baby bump as she walked the red carpet in a white Dior gown at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month (Sep16). And with sources close to Portman and her husband, choreographer Benjamin Millepied, confirming the news to Us Weekly, it appears the Black Swan star is a mum-to-be again. Portman and Millepied, 39, met on the set of Black Swan and wed in 2012. The couple’s first child, a son named Aleph, was born in 2011.
2. Lea Seydoux
Lea Seydoux is famously tight-lipped about her personal life. But there were no words needed when the French actress stepped out at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month (Sep16), stopping to pose and cup a small bump, sparking speculation she’s expecting her first baby. She has also recently been pictured wearing a swimsuit, in which a bump can be seen, and other snaps show her boyfriend Andre Meyer holding her as she is wrapped in a towel.
3. Anne Hathaway
Reports began swirling in November 2015 that Anne Hathaway was expecting, but the Oscar-winner didn’t confirm the news until January (16) when she shared a photo of her growing tummy on social media. “So, posting a bikini pic is a little out of character for me,” she wrote on Instagram. “But just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed. I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter:)” The Les Miserables star and her husband, Adam Schulman, welcomed their son, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman, in March 2016.
4. Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde and her fiance Jason Sudeikis managed to keep the exciting news they are expecting their second child together secret until they announced it via social media in April (16). The actress posted a sweet black-and-white shot on Instagram of her and two-year-old son, Otis, holding their tummies, with the caption, “Matching baby bumps”. Too cute!
5. Ellie Kemper
Ellie Kemper opted for an original way to share her baby news. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star made the announcement during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, telling the TV host simply, “I have big news. I’m pregnant.”
Fallon then proceeded to talk to Kemper’s baby bump, “Hi, baby! Hi! I can’t wait until you see the show. Your mommy’s very funny and very talented.” It was reported in August (16) that Kemper had given birth to a boy, her first child with husband, Michael Koman, whom she wed in July 2012.
