By Katie Gray

Zoe Saldana recently opened up about how the studios panicked after she announced her celebrity pregnancy last year. According to, she encountered some struggles during her pregnancy with her twin celebrity babies. “Let me tell you something, it will never be the right time for anybody in your life that you get pregnant,” she said, revealing that some of her employers were not pleased. “The productions I was slated to work on sort of had a panic. I heard through the grapevine there was even a conversation of me being written off of one of the projects. I was like, ‘Oh, my God, are you kidding me? It’s this bad? Right when I just feel super-duper happy, is that inconvenient for you? That me, as a woman in my thirties, I finally am in love and I am finally starting my life? And it’s [screwing] your schedule up? Really?'” It’s like the saying goes, “Life isn’t all diamonds and rosé, but it should be.”

Celebrity pregnancies aren’t always embraced with open arms. What are some ways to announce your pregnancy in the workplace?

Cupid’s Advice:

Announcing your pregnancy in the workplace can be made into a fun event instead of a secretive announcement. Cupid has some advice:

1. Food: A great way to announce a pregnancy at work is leaving a note with food. Food is always a good idea! You can bring in cupcakes that are frosted pink and blue, the traditional baby colors. It’s always fun to bake and everyone will be happy to fulfill their sweet tooth.

2. Game: It’s fun to make the announcement a guessing game! Print a picture of your ultrasound out and put it in the break room with a sheet for people to guess “Who’s My Mama?” by filling out slips and writing the name of who they think the mother-to-be is. Then the next day, the winner gets a candy prize.

Decorate your desk with a family photo, put your ultrasound picture as your screensaver, add little pink and blue decals depending on the gender of the baby, so forth. There are so many ways you could theme your workstation and desk!
