Susan gave birth to a baby girl in early November as expected, and that announcement was just as adorable. "Yep…Avri Roel Downey joined the party @ 3:22 a.m. on November 4th…she’s 7lbs even, spans 20 inches, and is accompanied by a variety of Susan’s traits that have seemingly overwritten my 'junk DNA," RDJ Facebooked.

Keeping with tradition, the royal family announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were expecting their second baby with, what else, a royal announcement!

4. Kelly Rowland:
The Destiny's Child star knows how to tease a pregnancy! Rather than coming out and saying she was pregnant, Kelly Rowland decided to instead post an Instagram pic in June of a tiny pair of Air Jordans. The caption read: "I'll be stuntin like my daddy....."

Rowland and her husband, manager Tim Witherspoon, welcomed their first child on Nov. 4, naming their baby boy Titan Jewell Witherspoon.
