List Rules Vote up the most absurd ways stars have shared their happy news.

Celebrities! They're just like us! They have children! They announce their pregnancies! But they do it slightly more ostentatiously than us commoners. Famous folk are prone to over-the-top celebrity baby reveals, and gender reveals have now become all the rage, particularly on social media. Elaborate celebrity pregnancy announcements are infinitely more interesting than those from boring, non-famous Debra on Facebook. No one cares about your baby, Debra! People only care about Beyoncé's twins!  

Check out these amazing celebrity pregnancy announcements and vote up the one that you think is the most over-the-top.

Christian Colón Hit A Homerun

The Kansas City Royals shortstop isn't the first baseball player to take advantage of his career when announcing his pregnancy, but Christian Colón and his wife Kayla were arguably the cutest when they took to the empty baseball diamond after a game against Arizona. Kayla pitched from the mound and Christian took a mighty swing at a ball that exploded into pink powder. The new dad excitedly posted a welcome message to his unborn daughter on Twitter along with the video of the reveal.

A post shared by P!NK (@pink) on


P!nk technically announced she was pregnant with her second child in November 2016, with a gorgeous picture of her in a flowing white dress. A follow-up shot in December of that year, however, is a bit more eye-catching. In it, the singer poses topless while her daughter hugs her pregnant belly from behind.

Beyoncé Performed Her First Reveal At The 2011 VMAs

Nobody does it better than Beyoncé. That's why she makes the list twice. No other celebrity's Instagram post is even on this level: who but Beyoncé could roll up to the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards and deliver a banging performance of "Love on Top" before popping open a glittery purple blazer and showing off a baby bump?

A post shared by Jessica Alba (@jessicaalba) on

Jessica Alba took to the 'gram to announce that she was expecting a baby boy by posting a cute Boomerang video of her gender reveal. In the video, Alba and her two daughters pull the string on a box from which blue confetti and balloons pour forth. Eagle-eyed Instagrammers among you might notice that the box above their heads bares the logo of Alba's lifestyle brand the Honest Company, so even Alba's pregnancy is on brand!
