The couple was photographed walking in New York City over the weekend, with Rihanna wearing a long pink coat unbuttoned to show off her baby bump. Miles Diggs, the photographer who took the photos of the musical couple, shared the images on Instagram on Monday with the caption “SHE IS !”
But the musicians aren’t the first famous couple to not issue a formal statement about expecting a bundle of joy together. Here’s a look at other celebrities who recently took fans around the world by surprise with their baby news – without sharing a traditional announcement.
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra earlier this month shared on Instagram that they have a new addition to their family, writing “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby together via surrogate."
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Beyoncé at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2011 turned to the crowd after her performance at the awards show, opened up her blazer and rubbed her baby bump as she was expecting her daughter, Blue Ivy, with Jay-Z.
During Cardi B’s 2018 performance on “Saturday Night Live,” the camera pulled back to reveal her baby bump while she was pregnant with Kulture, her daughter with rapper Offset.
Seth Meyers and his wife, Alexi Ashe, welcomed their second baby in an unusual place – their apartment lobby. Just one day after the birth of their son, Meyers told his "Late Night" audience, “’We're in the lobby and we're walking down the steps and my wife just says, 'I can't get in the car. I'm going to have the baby right now, the baby is coming.’”
"We undressed her and the baby was just out," Meyers recalled. "The head of the baby was out. I called 911 – this is how fast it happened – I called 911 and over the course of a minute conversation, I basically said, ‘We’re about to have a baby, we’re having a baby, we had a baby.'"
Mindy Kaling gave birth to her daughter, Katherine, in 2017. But it was Oprah Winfrey who first publicly shared the news of Kaling's pregnancy.
"If anyone is going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person,” Kaling told Ellen DeGeneres while pregnant with her daughter. “You can’t complain that much about it."
