Paul Rudd Helps Couple Announce Pregnancy & He’s Part of a Growing Celeb Trend
If I could choose anyone to deliver big news on my behalf, it would be Paul Rudd. But whether it was for something good (like Tom Hiddleston really wanting my number) or terrible (like dreaded sextuplet dictator Kate Gosselin coming back to TV), everyone would probably be so busy getting lost in his gorgeous eyes to even pay attention to what he was saying. But for a lucky couple who happened to bump into him at a bar, the incredible dancer, ridiculously funny actor, and all-around dreamboat did just that. Paul Rudd helped a couple announce their pregnancy and if you're feeling jealous of them, you totally should be.
With a nod to his role in one of the funniest movies in the history of bromance movie cinema, Knocked Up, a newly pregnant couple asked him to take a picture with them to help get the special announcement out there. The snapshot of the couple and their newfound celebrity spokesperson, which has unsurprisingly gone viral after it emerged online, shows Rudd happily grinning while holding up a sign saying "She's Knocked Up!" Do you hear that? It's the sound of Paul Rudd putting all of your pregnancy announcements to shame.
Rudd isn't the only celeb who's helped out a few fans in letting their loved ones in on something special. From pregnancies to promposals, these Hollywood heavyweights have taken the time to transform a simple Instagram photo or Facebook status into the stuff viral dreams are made of.
A woman spotted After Earth actor Will Smith in a coffee shop and decided what better way to announce her pregnancy than with a little help from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Smith posed next to her with a sign reading "Emily's pregnant!" while the woman, presumably Emily, couldn't help but flash a big thumbs up with her arm around Smith. As soon as the photo hit the Internet, it unsurprisingly went viral, and the world uttered a collective sigh of jealousy. On a scale of one to Beyoncé rubbing her belly at the 2011 VMAs, this one is definitely up there.
Although the Breaking Bad actor has long since hung up his Heisenberg persona for good (*cue lengthy moment of silence*), Cranston recently helped a young fan score a date for prom. The fan approached Cranston after seeing him perform in his new Broadway show 'All The Way' in New York City, and asked if he'd be so kind as to intimidate a classmate into going to prom with him in true Walter White style. "Maddie, if you don't go to the prom with Stefan than maybe your best course of action is to tread lightly," growled Cranston on video, a recording that later got the lucky fan a prom date, and a free trip to New York for him and his date courtesy of Cranston.
While Kickstarter has given us many things (Veronica Mars, I see you!), one of the cuter results of the landmark fund-raising site was thanks to musician Matt Hulbert, who donated to filmmaker and actor Zach Braff's movie Wish I Was Here. Thanks to his donation, Hulbert got Braff to help him propose to his Scrubs-addicted girlfriend, Janice, in a sweet video. She said yes. Obviously.
Earlier this year, a student named Mia realized she was sitting next to the Jonas Brothers heartthrob at an L.A. Kings hockey game, and enlisted his help in becoming president. Of student council, that is. Jonas obliged her with a video, saying, "Culver City High School, you got to vote for my girl Mia." Thanks to her pop star endorsement, she went on to win the election and take over the world (supposedly).
