Kylie Jenner, 20, shocked the nation when she finally shared the news of her pregnancy after months of staying out of the spotlight.

Of course, the baby name reveal came much later, and took on an Internet presence of its own.
Anna Kournikova, 36, and longtime boyfriend Enrique Iglesias, 42, welcomed twins on December 16 in Miami.
