If you’re rocking a bump right now, you’ve got some celebrity company as plenty of Hollywood heavyweights are also expecting at the moment. And, better yet, in the age of social media we don’t have to wait for a big magazine spread of the burgeoning bumps—because these famous moms are cutting out the middleman to share adorable their middles with other mamas online.
Tennis champ Serena Williams accidentally announced her pregnancy through Snapchat back in April—but since then she’s kept us intentionally updated on her pregnancy journey by posting sweet selfies of her growing baby bump on social media. “So few surprises in life these days, that’s why I'm waiting to find out the sex of the baby,” Williams told Instagram followers in a recent post.
Model Brooklyn Decker is also expanding her tennis-loving family, although she’s not quite as far along as Williams. Decker, along with husband Andy Roddick and son Hank (who turns 2 in September) are getting ready for a baby girl. After Roddick announced the pregnancy last month while being inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, Decker posted a baby bump portrait to the Instagram account for her wardrobe company, yourFinery.
Nikki Reed is another Hollywood mama who put pregnancy pics on her business ‘gram. The actress and sustainable fashion designer can be seen on social media rocking her baby bump while wearing her line, Bayou with Love. Reed’s husband, Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder, announced the pregnancy on his Instagram back in May. “In my 38 years on this earth I've never experienced anything more powerful and beautiful than this,” the soon-to-be dad wrote in the photo caption.
