These days, we find a lot of celebrity news out through Instagram, straight from the stars themselves.
Whether it’s a pregnancy announcement, a new campaign they’re promoting, or simply an insight into their daily life - the famous faces we follow online seem to be just as active on social media as we are.
But it isn’t always easy to keep up with everything online - so every Sunday we bring you our seven best Insta pic picks so you never miss out on the A-list goings on.
Here are this week’s VIIPs (Very Important Instagram Posts!)
Hilaria Baldwin speaks out about miscarriage stigma
Hilaria Baldwin often shares details of her four pregnancies, the highs and lows of raising her children, and having a big family.
This week, she revealed in an Instagram post that she had experienced a miscarriage with the intention of normalising talking about pregnancy loss.
Speaking openly about the difficult time, Hilaria spoke of her gratitude for her family, the support she has received from them, and also the kind words from her followers.
“There was no heartbeat today at my scan...so it’s over...but I have some pretty strong and amazing heartbeats right here.”
We hope that Hilaria’s openness will inspire other women and their families to start talking about the sensitive issue and in time the stigma of miscarriage will be a thing of the past.
Princess Eugenie’s National Siblings Day post
Wednesday saw Instagram filled with pictures tributing the greatness of siblings.
And it was lovely to see the Royals get involved, too.
Princess Eugenie posted a photo of her on her wedding day with sister, Princess Beatrice, who was doing the number one sister duty - holding up her veil and helping her into her car.
Though followers did point out a minor grammatical error in her caption (it’s you’re - not your), we still love this photo and the love these two have for each other.
Sometimes autocorrect lets us down, but sisters never do! Sibling goals…
Jill Duggar’s insect swatting fail
Flying critters are a nuisance - we all know that. But this week Jill Duggar shared a picture on Insta that fans weren’t best pleased about…
Sharing her annoyance of the hard-to-catch insects online, she wrote: “I spent several minutes yesterday trying to kill a wasp that come into the house and in the meantime also killed a bee, then killed ANOTHER wasp today!”
Yeah - the buzzing can drive even the most patient of us up the wall - but girl, save the bees!
Gemma Atkinson talks about the highs and lows of pregnancy
We’ve seen lots of real talk from influencers this week surrounding pregnancy.
Gemma Atkinson shared an honest post about her pregnancy, and how things aren’t always as they seem in the world of social media.
Speaking of the common struggles of pregnancy, she highlighted that despite always seeming OK on Instagram, she - like every pregnant woman - has slower days, and that’s totally normal!
Captioning a picture of herself enjoying a pizza that made us feel super hungry, she said: “Today I didn’t shower, I came home from work, I put my trackies on, I lay with the dogs and for my tea I’ve ordered this large pizza just for me! I’m basically a sloth.”
She received plenty of praise and support from her followers, who thanked her for speaking out about the Instagrammable and the not-so Instagrammable moments of pregnancy.
Pete Davidson’s return to Instagram
After a hiatus from the online world, Pete Davidson returned to Instagram this week with a few cryptic posts.
The Saturday Night Live comedian shared an image of himself as a child and two blank images. He used this to announce three dates and locations where he will perform alongside John Mulaney for their comedy tour.
It comes after fans were left concerned about Pete when he shared a worrying message on Instagram in December.
Though we can’t say for certain of how Pete is now - we are glad that he has a fresh focus and has taken some time away from Instagram to put his energy in this and himself.
Kaley Cuoco’s Big Bang Theory throwback
Who doesn’t love The Big Bang Theory?
We got some serious nostalgia when Kaley Cuoco posted this cute throwback picture of Penny from the pilot episode back in 2007!
The gorgeous actress’ followers complimented her in the comments, saying how she had not aged one bit! And we agree - she is still Penny from the pilot!
Selma Blair talks of her memory problems
Selma Blair has been speaking about some of the issues she has been facing relating to multiple sclerosis.
On Friday, she posted a stunning photo of herself and used the caption to open up about the memory problems she struggles with. She said: “This was from a book to raise money? Awareness? for brain cancer. I have my own memory problems. I might forget what I am looking up in the middle of it. Or I would give you more info on this book. So. I keep typing.”
We are so pleased that Selma is raising awareness of her condition by talking about it online and wish her all the best coping with the difficult effects.
But the Instagram post which is crowned our number one this week has to be…
Taylor Swift’s cryptic countdown
It is our top pick this week because it’s so cryptic and has got us all excited for what is in store with Tay.
This post came after Taylor put a countdown on her Instagram story, leading many to believe it could mean that she will soon be releasing some new music.
If the theories are correct, we are so ready and are certainly on countdown too!
