Anne Hathaway turned a “paparazzi moment” into a “victorious” one after sharing her baby bump photo on social media.

The award- winning actress was photographed by an alleged paparazzi while having a good time on the beach. Fortunately, the “Les Miserables” star allowed the photographer to take a snapshot of her new blissful achievement and proudly shared the photo on her Instagram.

“Happy 2016 to my beautiful Instafriends! 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…” Hathaway wrote.

“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!”

The famous photo gathered more than 260k likes and 6,000 comments, and still counting.

This will be Hathaway’s first baby with producer Adam Shulman. The couple tied the knot last September 2012, notes ABC. Meanwhile, pregnancy rumors started to emerge on the Internet last year.

Aside from the official Instagram photo, The Daily Mail captured the duo apparently having a vacation on the shores of Hawaii. Notably, the “Devil Wears Prada” actress revealed on the Telegraph that she wanted to be a mom since she was 16.

“I’d like to have as many as I can afford, not just financially but in terms of time, because you want to make sure each one feels special,” Hathaway explained.

On the other hand, Vanity Fair seems to be excited about Hathaway’s child. They could imagine that the baby might be sort of a theater actor.

But then, VF author noted that “Really we have no way of knowing who this most blessed child will be.” Nonetheless, congratulations to Anne and Adam.
