Bringing a baby into this world is one of the most exciting times an expecting couple can experience – and revealing it can be equally as thrilling too, so why not have fun with it?

From Rolene Strauss to Beyoncé, here's a look at some of the creative ways celebs have revealed their big baby news.

Cheslin and Layla Kolbe

We’re all about this quirky baby announcement made by Springbok player Cheslin, his wife, Layla, and their six-year-old daughter, Kyla, on Instagram.

The couple referenced hit single Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice.

“Ice, ice, BABY!!! What happens in Berlin surely doesn't stay in Berlin,” Layla captioned her post.

Cassper Nyovest

Recently fans were gushing at the news that Cassper Nyovest and his girlfriend, Thobeka Majozi, will be welcoming his baby boy “any minute now”.

The rapper made the announcement by uploading a scan of his son as an album cover. He also revealed the news of his upcoming album that is set to be released on 11 September.

“I'm going to be a father Any Minute Now so I decided to name my album #AMN (Any Minute Now),” Cassper captioned his post on Instagram.

Loot Love

Loot Love’s adorable image of her baby bump with two mickey mouse drawings on it caused a frenzy on social media.

The television presenter posted the image on Instagram announcing that she and her ex-boyfriend Reason were expecting twins.

“I’m nervous but all that goes away when I feel weird little ‘gas bubbles’ which I now know are little kicks because I’m carrying life,” Loot Love wrote. “A reminder of the miracle and wonder that is God.”

Rolene Strauss

Announcing her second pregnancy with her husband, D'Niel Strauss, the former Miss World showed us her fun side by going live on YouTube and playing a game with her fans and letting them guess her big news.

See the video below.


Any news of Ciara and her NFL quarterback husband, Russell Wilson, gets tongues wagging.

In early January, Ciara officially announced her third pregnancy by uploading a picture of her posing on a hill in Turks and Caicos, showing off her banging body and her baby bump.


You could swear the world stops when Queen Bey uploads anything, really. But revealing her second pregnancy with Jay-Z broke the internet and became another undeniable iconic moment by the Carters.

The Crazy in Love singer posted an image of herself draped in chiffon, posing with her growing belly, carrying twins Sir and Rumi.

“We would like to share our love and happiness,” Beyoncé captioned her Instagram post. “We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters.”


Kylie Jenner

Any Kardashian fan will remember this one. For months on end, Kylie’s pregnancy was “the best-kept secret” and only nine months later – after giving birth to her daughter Stormi – did the reality TV star and billionaire confirm the baby news.

The makeup mogul took to YouTube to share a compilation of videos documenting herself, her baby daddy, Travis Scott, and her loved ones throughout her pregnancy journey.


Fergie went into the archives for this one, sharing a photoshopped image of herself and her

then-husband, Josh Duhamel, as babies to announce their big news.

“Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!!” she captioned the image.
