Tamara is a fan of all things pink – speaking to HELLO! magazine about her recent baby shower, she said, ‘It was all pink and totally perfect. There were pink and white sofas, a barman mixing special pink cocktails, a four-tier cake and photos of me as a baby.’

With social media playing a massive part in the way pregnancies and births are announced, more and more people are getting creative with how they share their news, and celebrities are getting in on the act.

Singer Rachel Stevens announced her pregnancy by posting a pictures of the family's trainers lined up in a row alongside their years of birth, with a special space at the end for their new arrival.

While singer Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Brothers tweeted during his wife Danielle’s labour and then posted an arty close-up of her and daughter Alena Rose to announce her arrival.
