Have you shared your baby bump photo on Instagram? I sure didn't, but then I'm not a celebrity. Photos of me carrying to term my 10-and-a-half pound baby wouldn't have made the most glamorous posts.
Which is not a problem for these 12 celebrities. I mean, check out these women and their growing bumps. They're all pretty epic.
Alec Baldwin's wife, the very fit yoga instructor Hilaria Baldwin, shared their baby news via Instagram this month. She wrote about her baby bump photo series saying, "And we begin the journey again! #BaldwinBabyBump3 I posted belly photos every two weeks when I was pregnant with Rafa. I didn't have the guts to do it the first time around with Carmen. The purpose? To show that we don't need to be ashamed or hide the pregnant figure. These are common emotions in our society that elevates a thin body above all else. Being my third baby in three years, I am a true believer that our bodies are amazing, and we should celebrate them, rather than feel embarrassed and hide until the baby weight is entirely gone. For both women and men: we create life...so let's honor how we make these miracles. Every pregnancy is different, so we shall see what happens this time around, ready to take the journey with me? Deep breath, pressing 'share'..."
Super model Chrissy Teigen, wife of John Legend, shared a photo of her baby bump being sewn into the dress she wore to the Oscars. That looks a wee bit dangerous.
Anne Hathaway decided to share her own baby bump photo before someone else did. "So, posting a bikini pic is a little out of character for me, but just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed. I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter :)"
Liv Tyler announced her third pregnancy on Instagram recently writing, "Oh my goodness it seems the stork is visiting us again !!!! I am growing another little Tyler Gardner in my belly. Our family is growing!!! So grateful."

"Hunger Games" actress Jena Malone announced her pregnancy with a lovely baby bump pic and a poetic post. She wrote: "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."
