When they decided to share their news in June Rio, 41, and Kate, 29, used a video of a sweet family moment.
In the clip, Rio's children Lorenz, 14, Tate, 12, and nine year old Tia are gathered around their family's dining table and flicking through a photo album with one page reading: "Now for the next chapter".
Kate then said "I'm pregnant" and the trio jumped out their chairs to celebrate and hug the expectant mum in a heart-warming moment.
She said of the video: "The crazy house is about to get a little bit crazier… every time I watch this it makes me cry, the best reaction. Baby Ferdy we are all so excited to meet you."
Jay-Z and Beyoncé
Beyoncé also used Instagram to announce she was pregnant with twins Rumi and Sir, now three,in 2016. But this was no ordinary photo.
The beautiful snap showed her in underwear and a yellow veil, surrounded by flowers and cradling her bump. For a period of time it was the most liked photo on the platform.
This wasn't the 39 year old's only memorable pregnancy announcement – she told the world that Blue Ivy, now eight, was in her belly during a performance at the 2011 VMA's by unbuttoning her jacket to reveal a bump.
Jamie Jewitt and Camilla Thurlow
Jamie, 30, and Camilla, 31, welcomed daughter Nell into the world just last month, but when it came to letting their fans know about her impending arrival they got very creative.
The pair tasked their family members with reacting to a piece of paper, and passing to each other through camera trickery. The soundtrack was the very appropriate: "Ice, Ice, Baby".
Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon
Joe showed his humour, when he shared that they were expecting a baby by posting three photos of his girlfriend Stacey sleeping.
He wrote: "Have been driving myself mad thinking that she’s bored senseless of me and can’t stand to be awake for longer than 10 minutes of my company… So you can imagine my delight to find out that she still loves me and my company very much she’s just been growing a baby."
Little Rex is now one and completely adored by Stacey, 31, and Joe, 38.
Matthew Wolfenden and Charley Webb
OK! have been lucky enough to help Emmerdale couple Matthew, 40, and 32 year old Charley with their announcements. They've posed for beautiful family shoots to celebrate the milestone moments for their family, including their surprise wedding and third pregnancy with son Ace, now one.
