BLAKE Lively has unexpectedly announced that she is pregnant with her fourth child with husband Ryan Reynolds.
But other stars like Rihanna, Kylie Jenner, Beyonce and more have made their own over-the-top pregnancy announcements in the past.
The 35-year-old actress showed off her new baby bump on the red carpet at New York Fashion Week.
Blake showed off her round stomach while attending the 10th annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit in New York on Thursday.
It’s unknown how far along the movie star is as just a few weeks ago she showed off a perfectly flat stomach in a bikini on social media.
Blake and her husband Ryan are already parents to son James, seven, and daughters Inez, five, and Betty, two.
In late January 2022, 34-year-old Rihanna revealed her baby bump to the world in a series of pictures taken while strutting around New York with A$AP Rocky.
The Barbados-born singer showed off her bare baby bump during the weekend getaway with A$AP, 33, in his hometown of Harlem.
Wearing a $6.7k long pink puffer despite the freezing weather, Rihanna dropped a top underneath the coat and instead wore a pearl necklace and jeweled cross necklace.
Fans speculated she was pregnant in November 2020 after she reportedly asked staff not to smoke around her while attending the first-ever presidential inauguration in Barbados.

Some also claimed they saw a baby bump – but the Diamonds singer took control of her crib story by announcing the big news with her bold photoshoot.
In 2011, Beyonce, 41, announced that she had Love On Top and a baby on board.
During this year’s MTV VMAs, the superstar took the stage to perform her aforementioned hit from her album 4…when she was about to become a family of three with husband Jay-Z.
“I want you to feel the love growing inside me,” Beyonce said on stage before interrupting the event’s closing number.
At the end of the live performance, she opened up her tuxedo to rub her tummy while everyone was smiling — as was Jay-Z backstage.
Two hours earlier, Beyonce had officially announced her pregnancy on the red carpet, but the musical moment was the cherry on top “On Top.”
Daughter Blue Ivy Carter arrived in 2012, and in 2017 Beyonce made another surprise drop — not of an album — but of the news she was pregnant with twins Sir and Rumi via a fabulously floral Instagram photo.
According to INSIDER, it became the most popular post of the year.
On September 7, 2021, Kylie, 25, announced her second pregnancy with Travis Scott on Instagram.
In what fans called a heartwarming video, she showed up holding her positive pregnancy test and showing it to the babies’ father Travis, 31, as well as their mother, Kris Jenner.
“Are you pregnant?” asked Kris as she started to smile, adding, “Stormi we’re having a baby!”
“This is one of the happiest days of my life.”
On Jan. 6, 2022, Kylie took to Instagram to post a pregnancy update that saw her belly bulging out of unbuttoned jeans.
She captioned the post, “I’m a woman,” while flaunting her baby bump.
Kylie and Travis share daughter Stormi, four, and have also kept the news a secret — all along.
The Hulu star wore baggy clothing, shared old photos on Instagram, and kept out of the public eye.
After Stormi was born on February 18, 2018, she shared a pregnancy progress video dedicated to her daughter and finally announced the big news to fans.
She explained her decision to keep the pregnancy a secret to Andy Cohen: “I’ve shared so much of my life. I was also very young when I got pregnant and it was just a lot for me personally.
“I didn’t know how to go public with that and have everyone’s opinion. I think it was just something I had to go through on my own.”
In 2020, SuperBass singer Nicki Minaj, 39, revealed her super belly in a surprise Instagram announcement.
“Pregnant,” she captioned the first of three Instagram photos of the star cradling her stomach in a yellow wig.
“Love. Marriage. Stroller. Full of excitement and gratitude. Thank you everyone for the get well wishes,” she wrote over another post.
Nicki held her stomach on a pink pillow wearing a jeweled bra in this Instagram photo – and 7 million likes to boot.
Nicki welcomed her first child – a boy – with husband Kenneth Petty on September 30, 2020 in Los Angeles – they were married a year earlier.
Under pressure, La La Anthony commented: “Congratulations Nick!! [You] look beautiful! GLOWING!”
Nicki previously shared that she’s busy with her husband “three or four times a night.”
Pop star Halsey, 27, had a long road to having her first child, Ender, who was born in July 2021.
Back in 2016, she revealed to Rolling Stone that she had gotten pregnant the year before but suffered a miscarriage right before a performance when her career was taking off.
She continued with the performance anyway.
“It’s the angriest performance I’ve ever done in my life,” she recalled.
Halsey shared happier news on her Instagram with a surprise announcement in 2021.
“Surprise!” She wrote about a baby bump photo.
She explained in an Instagram Story post, “My pregnancy was 100% planned and I put a lot of effort into this BB.”
“But I would be just as happy if it were different,” she added.
Halsey then used a photo of her breastfeeding ender – who she shares with partner Alev Aydin – as her album cover.
Queer Eye star Tan France brought tears to the eyes of many fans with his own special announcement.
The fashion expert and husband Rob welcomed son Ismael in July 2021.
Tan first announced via Instagram that they were pregnant and posed shirtless with an ultrasound of his baby-to-be.
“So happy to finally share WE HAVE A BABY!” Tan wrote, then jokingly added, “No, I’m not pregnant, despite this VERY realistic image.”
“With the greatest gift/help of the most wonderful surrogate, Rob and I are fortunate to be on the path to becoming parents this summer.”
The TV star added that it’s “something we’ve wanted for so many years.”
“Our hearts are so full right now. I can’t wait to hold this baby and show him so much love.”
