The year 2020 has kept our celebrities quite… ahem, busy. This year, we saw many of our beloved celebrities welcoming newborn members to their family. As social media is taken by the storm by their cute and sensational celebrity pregnancy announcements, it has definitely left fans in a tizzy. Clearly, even the anxieties of a pandemic cannot dampen our joy for life and parenthood.
Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite couples that have expanded their family with an additional dose of cuteness:
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli
Naturally, the list has to start with one of the latest and most thrilling celebrity pregnancy announcements of the year – Virushka. Anushka Sharma had no qualms about showing her tiny baby bump and resplendent pregnancy skin as an extremely joyous dad-to-be Kohli stood behind her. The caption of the tweet read, “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021.”
Not only fans but RCB teammates were also so thrilled by the news. So much that they decided to throw an impromptu party for the couple! Needless to say, their timeline was loaded with good wishes and blessings for the baby.
Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan
If Taimur Ali Khan isn’t cute enough already, the young nawab is ready to welcome another sibling! Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan released an official statement in August that they are expecting their second child.
One must admit, Kareena has done an excellent job at hiding her baby bump in the past few days as she was quite with photoshoots and TV appearances even during the pregnancy. She was also one of the most active celebrities on social media during the lockdown. Yet nobody really had a clue until we heard it straight from the couple themselves!
Nataša Stanković and Hardik Pandya
Alright, Nataša Stanković and Hardik Pandya made the pregnancy announcement nearly three months ago. And the baby is already a month old, but that does not take away the fact that it was one of the cutest celebrity pregnancy announcements of the year.
The couple recently revealed the name of their bundle of joy – Agastya Pandya. And while hubby Hardik was not actually present in the name reveal (he is currently in the United Arab Emirates preparing for the Indian Premier League), he made it a point to shower his love in the comments section.
Karanvir Bohra and Teejay Sidhu
Television actors Karanvir Bohra and Teejay Sidhu, who tied the knot in 2003, recently took to social media to announce their third child. Already parents to twin girls, Vienna and Bella, the couple posted on Instagram a family photo where the daughters can be seen wearing t-shirts with “Big Sister” printed across them as the couple walks right behind while holding hands.
They dropped the news on Instagram on Karanvir’s birthday. The couple admitted that they always thought that it would just be the four of them as a family. However, Teejay says in an emotional post that the third child is a blessing from God, and they look forward to the baby’s arrival. Sometimes, the best celebrity pregnancy announcements are the most unexpected ones!
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are Hollywood’s A-lister. The couple is a complete opposite of each other. And maybe that’s what they mean when they say that opposites attract. Chrissy, with her sassiness, is the perfect complement to John and his placid temperament. And just when you think that the couple couldn’t get any more awesome, they decide to make their celebrity pregnancy announcements in style!
John Legend’s latest music video, “Wild” features the tender moments shared by the couple, and ends with the two subtly dropping a hint that they are expecting. This would be their third child, after Luna and Miles. You can watch the complete video here.
Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty
Celebrity pregnancy announcements are topping each other with one trying to outdo the other. However, Nicki Minaj cuts right through the chase by posting a classic maternity snap on Instagram with the hashtag #Preggers.
Photographer Alex Loucas has done complete justice to Minaj’s maternity photoshoot by capturing her style and fashion. She is seen sporting a Swarovski detailed bikini, strings of diamonds, canary yellow wig, and platform heels as she gently holds her baby bump. The couple got married in October 2019 and are now expecting their first child.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
Supermodel Gigi Hadid and on-again, off-again boyfriend Zayn Malik took to Instagram in April to announce that they are expecting. It was one of those celebrity pregnancy announcements that put all the rumor mills at rest. The little one is set to arrive this month!
The couple has been fairly private about the pregnancy. However, Gigi decided to treat her fans to a full-blown maternity photoshoot captured in black and white monochrome. The flowing garment and Gigi’s chiselled look makes motherhood even more regal than it already is!
Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund
American actress Emma Roberts has always kept her private life a complete hush-hush. But when it comes to celebrity pregnancy announcements, she took it one step further by sharing her baby bump and revealing the baby’s gender.
She posted a photo of herself with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund, where Garrett appears to be having a hearty laugh while Emma cradles her baby bump. The caption states, “Me… and my two favorite guys,” which leaves nothing to the imagination. Interestingly, this is also the first photo that she has posted with her boyfriend, making all the dating rumors official!
Congratulations are definitely in order to all the celebrity couples who are ready to possibly lose their good night’s sleep in the days to come. Regardless of everything, these celebrity pregnancy announcements have created quite a buzz amongst friends, well-wishers, and loved ones!
