Let’s make public the Strangest celebs baby
Before social media changed celebs way of interact with their fans, pregnancy announcements were a mainstay of magazine covers. Demi Moore, Cindy Crawford, and Brooke Shields are some examples. All of them did some version of the pregnant, naked and covering-my-boobs-with-my-arm thing. Brad and Angelina did even exclusive cover shoots for both, Shiloh and their twins, Vivienne and Knox. So did Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and more also. This just how things were always done and the resulting images were all rather shocking, but tasteful and sweet portraits.
But everything has changed. These days, if you aren’t doing anything shocking on the internet, nobody pays attention. Therefore, some stars have even resorted to scandalous. Honestly, that is an odd way to announce the expansion of their families. Here are some of the weirdest celebrity baby announcements
Beyoncé never does anything small. She can even go out for froyo with a wind machine and 7-inch heels and we will still say “that’s Beyoncé”. So, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise to anyone if she does weird things. Like how she treated the announcements of both of her pregnancies with a fanfare. You know, the kind that usually reserved for the Pope. To tell the world that Ivy, her child, would soon be upon them to rule with a tiny, perfect fist. Beyoncé chose to announce her pregnancy right at the
2011 MTV Video Music Awards. And no, she didn’t just tell Su-chin Pak or anyone on the red carpet.
No, no, no, she showed everything on the state performance of “Love on Top”. she literally dropped the mic, unbuttoned her clothe, and let the folks below gaze upon her baby bump. No way anyone can top that, right? Psh, you should know better than to doubt Bey, the Queen.
Knowing she needed to go beyond her previous announcement. Beyoncé decided there must have to be twice the number of babies to announce. Okay, we admit that part was very up to Mother Nature. But if anyone has the ability to think like that, it’s Queen Bey. Anyway, this time, the celeb revealed her pregnancy on Instagram with the help of photographer AwolErizku the Lord himself. AwolErizku, who not only a master of fine arts from Yale, but also has shown his work at the Museum of Modern Art as well, reported People.
According to Vanity Fair, the imagery that Beyoncé and Erizku chose is very weird. Which arguably has a very odd if not funeral vibe to it in some shots. They have everything ranging from 15th AC portraits of the Virgin Mary to a modern Wonderland but with Kim Kardashian. How that all adds up the most internet style pregnancy announcement of all time? We have no clue, but that’s why she is Beyoncé, she would just go beyond our mind.
2. Jenelle Evans
Each season of the series movie “Teen Mom” is as “that one”. Some may even say that on the original season of “that one” could be either Farrah Abraham or Amber Portwood. Only one of them can make the MTV crew using a porta-potty in her driveway, so it’s gotta be Abraham. On “Teen Mom 2”, the same argument could also be made for Jenelle Evans. So when it came to her announce of her third pregnancy, this time with boyfriend David Eason, shenanigans confirmed.
First, Evans and Eason let themselves get recorded while talking about a doctor visit that was obviously pregnancy-related. yet they lied about it to the producers on camera. Next, they got into a car accident in which the police report documented a passenger who was 10 weeks pregnant. When the report was leaked out, their surprise has blown. Evans then did the reasonable thing and immediately notified her family and friends, as you might think so, but wrong. Instead of that, she reportedly lied to everyone. She even lied to her mom, who had already seen the police report and remarked on her daughter’s growing belly. They supposedly did all of this because Evans wanted the announcement to be a “classy” one. So she waited until they did the J. Crew – esque photo shoot to tell everyone.
3. Fergie and Josh Duhamel
When Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie learned that she would soon be having a child, she was so surprised. So much that she told her husband, actor Josh Duhamel the news in a very exciting way according to “Page Six”. But he was ready for that. He reportedly said that he is not 24, he’s got some life experience that he can impart. So Fergie doesn’t have to worry. He also said that his mother was the disciplinarian and his father was more of a free spirit. So he is somewhere in between.
This man can handle it. As so we thought, but turned out what we weren’t ready for was this photo that Fergie and Duhamel tweeted. It’s some sort of Photoshopped baby photos (of the two of them), you know when they were babies. It kind of makes it look like their sibling, which is weird, for obvious reasons. Also, are they wanting a kitten? It was cute, albeit maybe a little not cool for a name. But we’re talking about the couple who named their son Axl Jack. The name sounds like one of those cereal bags on the bottom shelf. So we’re not exactly having any traditionalists here.
4. Jamie Lynn Spears
December of 2007, even though her older sister, celebrity Britney Spears, who is having public meltdowns. She gets her head shave, and battles for the right to raise her own children. Jamie Lynn Spears announced to everyone that she was starting a family. The thing is that she was just 16 years old at the time. Jamie Lynn was also a public figure, a celeb in a way. As the star of Nickelodeon’s Zoey 101 (2005-08) her teen pregnancy turn in to a scandal. So like any media-savvy family, Jamie Lynn and her mom decided to give exclusive rights to OK! Magazine. In the magazine, Jamie Lynn says that her pregnancy was not planned. She said that she wanted to let her fans to take her as an example. So that they should wait and not get pregnant until at least 18.
While that is indeed a good message to get out to her young and impressionable fans. it’s kinda odd when she chose OK! Magazine as the tool to inspire positive change. After all, this is the same public figure who said she is bored at home with Briney Spear. She also said she hated her life, which was about Britney temporarily having her sons taken away from her. We’re not saying that Jamie Lynn should have tried to hide her pregnancy. But maybe she could at least have shopped around for another magazine.
5. Bristol Palin
Bristol Palin shocked the world when she announced that she was pregnant at the age of 17. It happened at right in the middle mother Sarah Palin’s candidacy as John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election. Palin became an outspoken abstinence advocate even doing TV appearances to discuss the topic. She even took a position as a brand ambassador for the Candie’s Foundation. According to Forbes, the mission of the foundation has to educate America’s youth about the devastating consequences of teen pregnancy through celebrity PSA campaigns and initiatives. Sounds great, right? She took a very tough situation like that and turned it into a teachable moment for other young women. They are who may or may not find themselves in her position, but hang on a second.
Bristol promoted abstinence, meaning no sex before marriage. So with that, fast forward to 2015 when Bristol, who was not married at the time, announced her second pregnancy. The hypocrisy was not lost on a young spokeswoman, who penned the dismal blog entry announcing the news. She said that she’s been trying her hardest to keep her chin up on this one. She also explained that she knows this has been a huge disappointment to her family, her close friends, and many others. Wow, a little advice for Bristol: maybe try to contact Google and get that one erased from the internet before baby. But just kidding, anything went on the internet, stays on the internet.
6. Kristen Bell
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are known as the best actors for comedy. So, of course, it makes sense that they would take the funny route when they announcing their kids to the world. For their first child, Lincoln, Kristen took to Twitter and said that her new roommate poops her pants and doesn’t pay rent. Basically @daxshepard1 pre-sobriety welcome baby Lincoln by saying that nothing says adorable like a poop joke right out of the gate. But they also said that the baby daddy used to be an addict.
Bell obviously had to turn up her game when it was time to announce the baby sequel, Delta. So what did Belle chosen go with? A photo of Shepard trying to buy cocaine from a stork but the stork hands him a baby instead? Nah, that’s too on the nose and Fergie and Duhamel’s Photoshop guy was probably booked. She ended up and posting a creepy picture of an adult gorilla holding a baby gorilla’s hand. With the caption saying, she announced that the estrogen has now hit critical mass and Good luck, @daxshepard1. So wait, does estrogen can turn ladies into gorillas or something?
