It seemed that Oct 6 was an auspicious day, as Coco Rocha and Blake Lively both confirmed pregnancy that day, although via different channels.
On Oct 6, Coco Rocha announced that she was expecting her first child with husband James Conran. By the means of Instagram, she posted a short video which shows a camera circulating Rocha’s leotard-clad figure with a nursery-rhyme jingle as the theme tune.
“@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”. This is the caption coupling with the video.
On the same day, Blake Lively posted a picture announcing the same good news in a post about family on her Preserve blog. On her blog, this Gossip Girl celebrates “the special moment at the creation of family” and congratulates “all the expecting mothers out there”. Before finishing the post, she added a pregnancy photo.
“He’s going to be a great father and leader and patriarch—he’s so meant to be all of those things. The fact that he lived so much before we got together, he’s the exact realized person that he should be. And so I get to share my life with the person he’s become, and we get to grow from there.”
