"Happy 2016 to my beautiful Instafriends! So, posting a bikini pic is a little out of character for me, but just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed," Hathaway -- who is expecting her first child with husband Adam Shulman -- wrote. "I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter. Wishing you love, light and blessings for the year ahead!"

After months of speculation, it was confirmed in November that Hathaway was pregnant. Not long after the announcement, Hathaway was already showing when she was spotted holding hands with her hubby in Los Angeles.
