Pregnant Anne beats paparazzi with her OWN bikini bump snap

Dressed in a red bikini and cradling her bump, Anne Hathaway looked like any other expectant mum as she posed for a smiling holiday snap this morning.

The one difference? She had a gaggle of paparazzi on her tail as she did so.

News of Anne's pregnancy was confirmed back in November, but today the actress acknowledged it publicly for the first time, after noticing a few long-lens cameras following her.

"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," the Les Miserables star wrote on her personal Instagram account.

"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 :)"

We couldn't agree more – and there's no denying Anne looks downright amazing as she approaches her due date.

This will be the first child for the actress and her husband of three years Adam Shulman. Although it's not officially known when Anne is due, it's thought she's already at least six or seven months along.

Here's hoping she outsmarts the paps by sharing the first snap of her new arrival on social media too.
