Anne Hathaway posts baby bump bikini pic on Instagram

Anne Hathaway says she's not the type to post a bikini pic on Instagram, but a paparazzi forced her hand.

The actress posted a photo of herself holding her baby bump on the beach and explained why she decided to make her moment public.

"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," she 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!"

It's no surprise the image makes her happy; Hathaway looks radiant in the photo, and we don't think that's just from a filter.

The actress and her husband, producer Adam Shulman, announced in the fall that they were expecting their first child.
