There have been a lot of awe-worthy moments of late as many of the celebrity moms we followed while pregnant have been sharing super adorable pics of their newborns in social media.
Gone is the trend when magazines paid top dollar upwards to millions for the first photos of babies born to celebrities. The economy and the advent of social media have dried up the market. Most celebs Instagram or tweet first photos these days.
Not all, however.
For example, new mom singer Kelly Rowland previously had shared obscure and behind the head shots of her newborn son Titan with manager-hubby Tim Witherspoon on social media. Fans can see Titan’s face on the cover and inside the April edition of Essence magazine, on shelves now.
For others, Instagram and Twitter are still the top choice for sharing. Yet, they are still choosing to shield their babies faces perhaps because they plan a full reveal later (in a magazine) or to avoid the sometimes critical and biting commentary from commenters.
Beyonce, early on, only showed photos of her daughter Blue Ivy from the back and so did British singer and TV host Rochelle Humes who shares plenty photos of her daughter Alaia-Mai with her ex-boyband hubby Marvin Humes but only from the back as well
Vanessa Lachey chose Easter to share a photo on Instagram of her second child, daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth, who is now 3-months old. She wore an adorable white knit rabbit hat and matching bottoms with the cutest bunny tail. It’s not a face pic so there’s still a chance we may see her in a mag soon too. Nick Lachey and Vanessa welcomed their daughter on Jan. 5. She joined big brother Camden John, 2.
Liv Tyler welcomed her son with boyfriend David Garner in February and recently shared a photo on Twitter of herself staring at her son lovingly while holding him. The Leftovers star is also mom to son Milo with ex-husband Royston Langdon.
Model Milla Jovovich also announced the birth of her second daughter Dashiel Edan Jovovich-Anderson via social media. The Resident Evil actress and her director-movie producer husband Paul W. S. Anderson welcomed their second child on Wednesday, April 1. They are also parents to 7-year old daughter Ever Gabo.
New mom Terri Seymour too took to Instagram to announcer her daughter’s arrival. The Extra! TV host who is married to 24-year old Brit model Clark Mallon welcomed her first child on on March 9 in Los Angeles and joins the moms having their first baby 40 and over club.
Finally, singer-songwriter-activist Alicia Keys chose Instagram as well to show off a family photo of her son as well.
