From being in love, to being a parent, the journey is definitely not simple. Taking tiny steps of commitment, couples settle themselves into a routine. The excitement of being in love is simply beautiful. And the news of being pregnant only adds to its beauty. The feeling comprises of a mix of happiness, thrill, and a touch of fear, but it tops every other feeling in the world.
Expecting a baby is too exciting for parents. The good news just can't be shared with loved ones soon enough. And celebrity parents take a step extra and include us all in their precious moment, sharing the good news with us through social media.
Here are some celebrities whose baby announcements were as grand as themselves.

Womb to womb
To beating wing
I climbed out of the eternal
And into the shape of me
Some words I wrote years ago when I was thinking about my own mother. And the woman she was when she had me. And the woman I was reaching to become. The shape your desires make out of you. The body you become to hold your dreams. It's with two feet firmly on the ground and a heart swelling in an ocean of love that I'd like to share the new shape I am becoming to hold the greatest dream of them all. #babybump #newparents

Words can't express how lucky and blessed we feel to introduce a new life into ours and that our wish has finally come true. @nachocilantro on the other hand, isn't quite sure what that means for him but he's excited too.
