Ginnifer Goodwin Becomes the Latest Celeb to Announce Baby News on Twitter

Ginnifer Goodwin and boyfriend Joshua Dallas seen leaving a Comic Con party at the Hard Rock Hotel in San DiegoMaybe all those 1950s swing coats she was wearing on set should have clued us in?

Last month adorable Ginnifer Goodwin, 35, who plays Snow White on Once Upon a Time, and Josh Dallas, 31, who plays Prince Charming, announced their engagement.

Josh was divorced. Ginnifer had a series of long relationships. They found each other — super cute.

This week more happy news.

Ginnifer and Josh are expecting their first child together and she’s been kinda/sorta hiding her bump under some oversized winter wear on the show’s Vancouver set.

But the bigger issue may be. . . will celebrities ever go back to selling their news to the tabloids and pitting them against each other for the highest bids like they used to? Or is taking matters into their own hands and sending out a Tweet the new preferred forum?

For one thing, they get to completely control the message:

They also get to converse with fellow celebs in real time and exchange good wishes:

These two were not the first to use social media for baby news. Molly Sims tweeted followers that she was expecting a “honeymoon baby.” Alyson Hannigan turned to Twitter to confirm her second pregnancy. She also used Twitter  a few months before to clear up rumors that she was NOT expecting after certain folks assumed some unflattering photos told a different story.

Sometimes celebs get impressively creative with their messaging. Jessica Simpson memorably dressed as a mummy to confirm what most of the world had guessed — that she was expecting baby Maxwell. Fergie and Josh Duhamel tweeted an adorable photoshopped shot of the two of them as kids to share their expecting news. A few months later they used Facebook to release a photo of Axl Jack and included the hashtag #paparazziyoucanleaveourhousenow?

So as we await the new crop of celebrity babies — Drew Barrymore’s #2, Gwen Stefani’s #3, Kerry Washington’s first — we better start following them on social media or we’ll be out of the loop.
