Way to take charge of a situation, Anne Hathaway. The pregnant actress decided to take matters into her own hands while vacationing over the New Year's holiday with her husband, Adam Shulman. When she saw the paparazzi were getting snap happy as she enjoyed a fun day on the beach in her bikini, she wanted to make sure she was the one to be in charge of the photos. Hathaway took her own bikini baby bump picture and shared it on Instagram with her 1.8 million followers.

On the cute pic, which featured a lovely sunset in the background and Hathaway in her red bikini, she wrote, "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. 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!"

This marks the first time the Oscar winner publicly acknowledged her pregnancy in a photo after news broke that the couple were expecting around Thanksgiving.

Hathaway and Shulman have been married since 2012.
