BN Living: From Tiwa Savage to Chrissy Teigen – 10 Cute Ways Celebs Revealed their Baby Bumps



Over the years we’ve noticed that when some celebrity mothers are with child, announcing the good news is most times a big deal. Most of them have mini photoshoots at home with hubby or go to the studio, face beat and have professional photos taken, baring the bump in cute outfits and others choose to make a public appearance and have you see the bump for yourself.

However, some mothers in Nigeria choose to hide theirs baby bump for a few months before the reveal. Some for superstitious reasons and others for fear of a miscarriage in the earlier months.

Whichever way the cat gets out of the bag, having a baby is always a big deal and today, we’re showing you some of the cute ways celebrity mums make the “I’m Pregnant!” announcement and adding some bonus maternity photoshoots just because!

So let’s get into it!

2015….Just the 3 of US…❤️ #AllGloryToGod

Lifestyle and beauty vlogger, Patricia Bright and her husband Michael just recently welcomed their baby girl, Grace.
