Supermodel Natasha Poly Announces Pregnancy With Baby Bump Picture: Is This The New Instagram Trend For Mummies-To-Be?

26 April 2013 by

Celebrity offspring must come to terms with the limelight whether they like it or not. Little Suri Cruise can't leave the house without an in depth fashion analysis of her latest attempts at schoolgirl chic while there is a clearly audible 'Aaaahhh' uttered around the world every time Brooklyn Beckham helps his mum out by carrying younger sibling Harper - who was herself just this week awarded the coveted prize of 'Most stylish celebrity child haircut'. In reality if you've got a shy and retiring temperament you're really going to struggle in the face of paparazzi, media scrutiny and having a parent who most likely, given their profession, loves being the centre of attention.

Therefore it will pain future A-list babies to know that the latest Instagram trend puts them firmly in front of the camera before they reach the birth canal. Case in point, supermodel Natasha Poly, who has just announced that she has joined Kate Middleton and Halle Berry in the mummy-to-be club by posting a snap of her expanding tummy with the caption "Baby on Board". Instas is clearly the new way to announce any big news, as engagement rings and baby bumps are now as common as pictures of dogs and sunsets. Remember when Millie Mackintosh and Frankie Sandford from The Saturday's showed off their bling rings while Peaches Geldof's feed is constantly flooded with baby pics.

In terms of baby bumpers, Kim Kardashian has revealed hers while Kanye West's ex Amber Rose and Poly's fellow supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio documented their pregnancies on Instagram.

Stars have been no strangers to revealing their maternity figures ever since Demi Moore set the bar and stripped off for THAT Vanity Fair cover. Britney spears, Jessica Simpson, Claudia Schiffer, Brooke Shields and Cindy Crawford have all done it, but these days, instead of having their bump plastered over the new stands or waiting for the magazines to come calling, Kim kardashian and co take matters into their own hands.
