When it comes to Rihanna, we all know that the entire world is her runway. Embodying her own lyrics from her song “Wild Thoughts” — Diamonds ain’t nothing when I’m shining with you — Rihanna wore a long puffy pink coat, subtle makeup and jewellery. The superstar was glowing in the Instagram reveal.

However, Rihanna isn’t the first star to surprise her fans with such a news. Many other celebrity pregnancy reveals have sent waves across the internet.

Here are some of the most-talked-about celebrity pregnancy announcements.

Kylie Jenner

How can we forget makeup mogul Kylie Jenner’s internet-breaking pregnancy announcement back in 2017? It surely took the worlds of Instagram and Twitter by “storm”. Jenner, along with her boyfriend Travis Scott, welcomed Stormi Webster on 1 February 2018.

It seems like just yesterday that Kylie herself was a child, and it is heartening to see her transform from a young girl to an established businesswoman and a doting mother.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and multi-millionaire is the most-followed woman on Instagram, thanks to her posts, showcasing her makeup range Kylie Cosmetics, modelling projects and much more.

On 8 September 2021, Kylie took to Instagram to announce the news of expecting her second child with Scott.

They became parents of baby girl Khai on 23 September 2020.

Another fabulous celebrity pregnancy announcement is Cardi B’s. Cardi announced she was pregnant with her second child while performing at the BET Awards with Offset and Migos in June 2021. She made an appearance onstage, donning an intricate Dolce & Gabbana outfit with sheer panels to accentuate her beautiful baby bump.

On 28 June, the rapper shared a post on Instagram, tagging her husband Offset, and wrote: “#2! ♥️ @offsetyrn.”

In a heartwarming Instagram update on 6 September, the couple was seen cradling their newborn.

Almost three years ago in April, Cardi B had confirmed she was pregnant with her first child on SNL, where she flaunted her baby bump in a tiger white dress. The couple welcomed Kulture Kiari Cephus on 11 July 2018.
