Okay, so unlike celebrities, most of us regular folks don't have paparazzi photographing our every move, and tabloids wondering if our belly bloat is actually a baby bump—but that doesn't mean that we don't want to reveal our pregnancy news on our own terms, just like the stars!
And as Us Weekly reports, moms-to-be who are still trying to keep their pregnancies under wraps can learn a thing or two about baby bump-hiding from celebrity mamas and mamas-to-be like Kourtney Kardashian, Rachel Bilson, and Hayden Panettiere.
Bilson and Panettiere, Us reports, are normally fans of "body-con dresses" but were photographed more recently in fit-and-flare frocks with cinched waists and full skirts. Jackets (or bulky sweaters) are another tried-and-true bump-deflection device, as demonstrated in recent weeks by Kardashian and first-time mom-to-be Scarlett Johansson. And you can always rely on a prop like an actual baby (Kardashian) or a shopping bag—although, let's be honest, those are more practical for an on-the-go star trying to fool the paparazzi than they are for a preggo trying to avoid prying eyes at the office.
Of course, there are other ways to hide your first-trimester baby bump, too, like accessorizing strategically or showing off some of that growing cleavage (hello!). Or check out the tips in the video, below...
