Celebrities aren’t exactly known for being the most subtle group of people on planet Earth, but sometimes they are actually way more low-key than anyone gives them credit for.
From the time Kylie Jenner hid her entire pregnancy for nine months to Drake and Jennifer Lopez confirming their short-lived romance with a loved-up Instagram upload – these celebs all managed to keep it real when making major life announcements.
While we’re here, let’s get checking out some of the most shocking secrets stars have ever revealed about themselves…
1. Kylie Jenner shares the first image of baby Stormi’s face
Forget hiring a world-class photographer and ordering in a custom-made purple gown for the occasion (oh hey, Beyoncé) because Kylie opted to share the first glimpse of her daughter’s face with a candid shot on Snapchat.
2. Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner get engaged
There was no spin-off series, YouTube video, or magazine spread to document the engagement between the Jonas Brothers star and Game Of Thrones actor. Instead, the duo both took to Instagram to share a shot of their hands with a simple three-word message.
3. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber confirm Jelena 2.0
They first made their debut as a couple back on a 2011 red carpet, but this time around, Justin and Selena have kept the press and public firmly out of their relationship. The only reference they’ve made to their renewed romance? A meta shot of Selena with a polaroid of the Biebs pasted onto her forehead.
4. Drake and Jennifer Lopez snuggle up on Instagram
In potentially the weirdest celeb news that went down in 2017 (and trust us, there was a lot of competition) the penny finally dropped that something might be going on between J-Lo and Drake when the pair snuggled up for a grainy Instagram picture together.
Sadly this romance wasn’t meant to last, and the pair went their separate ways a few months later.
5. Ed Sheeran announces a new era via a piece of paper
While BFF Taylor Swift would tease the birth of her Reputation era via a series of increasingly ominious snake graphics, Ed kept his announcement on the DL by holding up a piece of paper that simply promised new music.
One of those tracks, ‘Shape Of You’, would go on to become the most streamed song of all time on Spotify. Casual.
6. Kylie Jenner drops pregnancy bombshell on YouTube
After months of speculation, thinkpieces, and increasingly bizarre conspiracy theories – Kylie took to YouTube with a personal video confirming that she and boyfriend Travis Scott had welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world.
7. Liam Payne and Cheryl confirm their relationship on Instagram
The couple are rumoured to be going through a bit of a rough patch at the moment, but back in 2016 they put weeks of speculation to rest by sharing a candid shot of themselves snuggled up in the back of a car. It truly was a simpler time.
8. Kim Kardashian announces engagement to Kanye West
While her engagement to ex-husband Kris Humphries was announced in a glossy magazine, Kim kept things considerably more low-key when Kanye West got down on one knee and popped the question. Cue a grainy black-and-white Instagram image with the caption: “YES!!”
9. Chrissy Teigen announces second pregnancy
Eschewing an interview, magazine spread, or longwinded Twitter message, Chrissy drafted in the help of daughter Luna to point at her belly and announce that a baby was growing in there. “It’s John’s!” she captioned the video.
10. Selena Gomez undergoes a kidney transplant
Sel managed to keep this medical procedure under lock and key for months, but decided to go public with the news back in September with a plea to her fans to educate themselves about Lupus.
Evidence that not everything has to have bells on it.
