Despite what was going on at the time with her ex husband, Johnny Depp, Heard still managed to take the time to introduce her new baby, via surrogate, into the world, in 2021 and she did it “on her own terms.”

Rebel has been in the spotlight for many things, but the biggest shock was when she made the announcement on Instagram that her new baby girl, Royce Lillian, had been born in November 2022.

This has got to be one of the best shocking celeb pregnancy announcements in history. During the Grammies in 2011, Beyonce decided to unbutton her jacket so everyone could see there was a bun in the oven. This event has even been published in the Guinness World Records as the “single most tweeted event.”

Another Instagram announcement that had people shocked, was the birth of Iggy Azalea’s first child. However, it goes without saying that Iggy was pregnant during lockdown, so it was a lot easier to conceal her pregnancy. 

Cardi B

Cardi B and her partner Offset’s relationship has been up and down for a while, yet the biggest shock came when she announced that she was pregnant. It was only less than a year after a divorce filing that Cardi B took to the stage during Saturday Night Live to announce she was pregnant.
