Should you release a pregnancy press release?

When I finally got pregnant, I couldn’t wait to scream it from the rooftops. While some celebrities can’t wait to release the news of their upcoming bundles of joy, three women have recently made headlines for, well, not giving a headline. What do you think? Is it annoying for them to not just state the obvious? How did you share your big news?

Reese Witherspoon


Although her bump’s been growing for months, Reese only recently acknowledged her pregnancy by noting that she’s been “feeling very round lately.”






Megan Fox

Well, I guess she sort of announced it. A picture’s worth 1000 words. Nice work, B.A.G.

UPDATE: @RealBrianAGreen hath tweeted: “Thank you everyone. We are so happy [smiley face],” but then followed it up with, “By the way that last tweet does not confirm or deny anything :)” I never figured BAG for an emoticon kind of guy.



Giselle Bundchen

Is she, or isn’t she? People are speculating that the fact that she has a hankie over her belly on this new Braziliam Vogue cover is proof.


Then again, they also called this photo proof… and that “baby bump” looks like me on the skinniest day of my life in six pairs of Spanx sucking in:

  1. I sent an email around to a bunch of family and friends when my Baby A arrived. Does that count? Lol. Even when I was pregnant, I hardly spoke about it with anyone (but my reasons were more complicated as to why).

    I can’t even imagine how much more the paparazzi stalk these women when they announce their pregnancies. I’m sure it’s also a career boost on one hand, but who wants to be bothered when they are prego? I really respect those who keep their news private. Let people speculate, I say. They are entitled to share their joy only with those closest to them for as long as they can if they choose.

  2. I guess it would be annoying to have a photographer staked outside your ob/gyn office… then again, they might do it MORE to try and snap “proof”– like they did to Drew Barrymore!
