PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT to the FAMILY
It's pretty common for women to announce their pregnancies around the end of that crucial first trimester—but celebrities are putting their own spin on that timeline. Is this a new trend?

Seeing a pregnancy announcement on social media is nothing out of the ordinary. In fact, if you're at a certain stage in life, it might feel like they're all you ever see.
But even amidst all the other social media pregnancy reveals out there,Felicia Daymanaged to put out one that's unlike so many of the others. The singer announced that she's expecting her first child, a daughter, on social media with a shot of her baby bump—but it looked a bit different than so many of the bumps we often see . Let's just say it was a bit more....developed.
That's because Felicia is just three weeks away from her due date.
The singer isn't the only star who led her pregnancy largely in secret.Pink, who recently welcomed her second child, also opted to announce her pregnancy just a few weeks before she delivered her baby boy, Jameson.
When you're famous, things happen a bit differently: For one thing, Felicia, Pink and the countless other famous mamas who opted not to share their news right away probably told their own families and friends of the news long before they broke it to the public. Let's also not forget that, in so many cases, pregnant celebrities have no control over how news of their pregnancies gets out to the public. After all, how many times have we heard media speculation surrounding an expectant mom? Case in point: poorJennifer Aniston, who has been fighting off pregnancy rumors for years.
Social media changed the way stars communicate news of their pregnancies to the masses, but that doesn't mean they all have to utilize it the same way. Some women—likeMegan FoxandAmanda Seyfriedchoose to let their bumps speak for themselves, while others put out adorably shot announcement posts towards the early part of pregnancy. But maybe stars like Felicia and Pink see this move as the best of both worlds. They get to enjoy pregnancy in private while still giving fans a heads up before they give birth.
Ultimately, both celebrities and non-famous moms have the right to announce their pregnancies whenever they want. That pregnancy announcement doesn't have to come right at 12 weeks, and it doesn't have to come at all.
