One of the best pregnancy announcements of all time was when Rihanna walked out with her boyfriend during the Super Bowl halftime and whipped open her jacket to reveal her baby bump. Fans were unsure if she was actually pregnant as the Super Bowl was just nine months after the birth of her first child.

Hilary has three children, Luca Cruz, 2012, Banks Violet, 2018, Mae James, 2021, so she is well aware of the best way to announce her pregnancies. In 2020, when she was pregnant with Mae James, she took to Instagram and posted her and her husband, Matthew Koma, with Matthew rubbing her baby bump. The caption read, “We are growing!! Mostly me…”

Even though a lot of celebrities like to go above and beyond with their pregnancy announcements, and like to make a big deal out of it, others prefer to continue keeping it pretty low-key. Robert Downey Jr. announced his wife’s pregnancy in 2014 with a blunt tweet that stated, “Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?” It was very straight to the point and quite comical.

The caption read, “It’s not for the movie…#2. All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies. Sending you extra love.”

This surprise bump reveal was one that got everyone super excited. To announce her first pregnancy in 2011, Beyonce appeared on stage at the VMA’s to perform, and after her performance of “Love on Top”, she unbuttoned her blazer to reveal and rub her baby bump. Jay-Z looked really proud of his wife and Beyonce later said, “I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself. I was extremely nervous. I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything.”
