Who’s the winner of the cutest celebrity baby announcement? Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel decided to try for the unofficial title by announcing that Jessica is pregnant as a way to celebrate his 34th birthday, reported Today.
Justin posted a photo showing him kissing his wife’s baby bump with a caption that expressed his excitement.
Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets
The announcement was prefaced by rumors that began in October, when the editor-in-chief of InStyle magazine sent out a tweet that spread around the world.
“Congrats @jessicabiel on your impending motherhood. Looking forward to the red carpet maternity style pix to come.”
However, editor Ariel Foxman subsequently deleted that tweet.
Then in January, rumors soared again as sources revealed that Jessica Biel was following a Paleo-style diet and exercising to prep for her pregnancy, as the Inquisitr reported.
Biel uses a company called Paleta, created by Executive Chef Kelly Boyer to provide clients with a healthy version of haute cuisine. The ingredients are sourced from local farms, cruelty-free ranches, and responsible fisheries. And Jessica herself praised Paleta on Twitter.
“Thank you eatpaleta for making my life easy & delicious. 3 meals & snacks at my doorstep? Yes pls. #PaletaForLife.”
But who’s the winner of the best baby announcement?
Carrie Underwood initially appeared to have achieved that acclaim by persuading her puppies Ace and Penny to wear baby announcement shirts designed just for the occasion. And to complete it, she even revealed her pregnancy news on Labor Day, reported Fashion & Style.
“In honor of ‘Labor’ Day, Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier.”
The dogs’ outfits say it all.
“I’m going to be a BIG BROTHER,” read one shirt, while the other boasted, “I’m going to be a BIG SISTER.”
Initially, Carrie and her husband, Mike Fisher, had some battles about when and whether to have a baby, said a source.
“They’ve been locked in a baby battle and it was putting serious strain on their marriage. Carrie made a pact with Mike last year that if he let her pursue her acting dreams, she’d get pregnant in 2014.”
Now, however, Carrie has made it clear that she is happy, after some adjustments, she told Today.
“It’s still kind of weird, to be honest,” Underwood admitted. “Sometimes I’ll be with my husband and I’m like, ‘I’m going to be a mom. You’re going to be a dad. Like, is this real life?’ But we’re really excited.”
