Anne Hathaway shows off her baby bump in bikini photo

The sad part is that she posted it to beat paparazzi to the punch

Anne Hathaway has been on holiday, but her privacy was compromised when paparazzi caught up with her (sounds like any regular celebrity story, right?). What sets Anne's story apart is how rather than let photos taken sneakily by someone else be circulated worldwide, the pregnant actress posted one of her in a bikini with her baby bump on Instagram first.

"Happy 2016 to my beautiful Instafriends!" she wrote. "So, posting a bikini pic is a little out of character for me, but just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed. I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter. Wishing you love, light and blessings for the year ahead!"

It's sad that Anne had to feel inclined to publish a photo of herself because of this, as beautiful as the photo is, but we can only admire how she took control of her private life. In any case, it's also definitely a better way for her baby bump to make its 'debut'.
