If you’re a supermodel, it’s the done thing to announce your pregnancy on Instagram these days. Doutzen Kroes did it with a nude shot, and so did
But Coco Rocha decided to go one step further when she announced her happy news yesterday, enlisting the talents of New York-based artist Steven Sebring to create an arty video to show off her flourishing baby bump.
14-second Instagram video
shows Rocha in a nude leotard as the camera pans 360 degrees around her, zooming in on her barely-there bump, before ending with the words ‘Baby Conran Arriving Spring 2015’.
It’s the first child for Rocha, 26, and her husband of four years, artist James Conran.

“@JamesEdwardConran and I are absolutely thrilled to announce that after 4 years of marriage we are expanding our family and expecting our first child spring of 2015! – James & Coco,” she posted alongside the video.

Rocha’s news came on the same day actress Blake Lively announced she is expecting her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds. The 27-year-old
used her lifestyle website Preserve.us
to announce the news, posting a photograph of her cradling her sizeable baby bump in a post celebrating expectant mothers.
