There are very few things that can compare to the joy from finding out you are going to have a baby. This is a life-changing experience and after you get to share the good news with your husband, you get to announce it to your grandparents, parents or any other special people in your life. It’s pretty fun to figure out a clever and unique way to share the news with your friends and family. When it comes to announcing it, there are endless possibilities and below you will find our favorite funny pregnancy announcement ideas.
1. Movie Poster
Everyone’s seen a movie poster. They’re present in television, on the internet and in advertisements; pretty much everywhere. This is one of the most fun pregnancy announcement ideas we’ve seen as you can use your partner’s and your last name as the production company name and use the release date as the actual date when the baby is expected to come. This idea is both creative and very cute. It’s also probably the best “movie” you’ll ever see as a parent.
2. Credit Card Ad
This pregnancy announcement idea definitely took some thought, but it really came out clever and great. This fake ad is a lovely and cute take on the well-known MasterCard advertisements we see on television so very often.
3. Expiration Date
If you already have a child, this is an amazing way to announce your pregnancy to the other members in your family. You can let them know that your first child’s “only child” status will expire soon, depending on the due date of your second child. It’s a nice way to let people know that your child will be getting a new baby sister or brother. Make sure you watch their faces as they realize the surprise hidden in this clever shirt.
4. Guard Dog Duty
This is one of the cutest pregnancy announcement ideas we’ve seen. If you have a dog that’s part of your family you can assign him to be the “guardian dog” once your baby is born. Dogs have a lot of patience and are very good with small children, so you might as well make it official with this cute sign.
5. Knocked Up
This pregnancy announcement idea is a little offbeat and different but it’s totally funny and cute. Go buy yourself some boxing gloves and you can easily recreate this fun announcement idea. Here’s an additional tip: you can take a photo in each trimester and call the pictures “Round 1, Round 2 and Round 3”.
6. Subtly Hinting
This idea will definitely need a little more time to figure out. However, once the people who you send this photo to realize what you’re trying to tell them, they’ll be glad for you as well as think you’re very clever. Sometimes saying less is better than having all your cards on the table.
7. Announce the Next Generation
You can always count that there will always be a next generation of tablet or smartphone coming out so this isn’t really fresh news in this day and age. However, this next generation is quite a big deal and this is definitely one of the cutest announcing pregnancy ideas and you can use it as well in order to put a smile on the face of your family and friends.
8. New Pair of Genes
A cool way to let people know that your family is expanding is by telling them you are getting a new pair of “genes”. You can add a fun twist to this announcement by adding the season when the new genes will arrive. This is one of the most creative announcements we’ve seen and it’s a nice way to let people know that you’re pregnant.
9. We Are Prego
This announcement is short, to the point and very simple. It’s a fun way to let people in on the big news. You can even cook them a great spaghetti dinner with the pasta sauce used in this clever pic. Well… unless it’s not Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter or any another holiday that requires a certain type of food.
10. Mug Shots
I honestly believe that this announcement is the icing on the cake. It’s our favorite from the list of pregnancy announcements ideas as it’s very clever. Your little baby is going to be your new “partner in crime” if you share the good news by staging this nice photo shoot. You can take this a little further by adding a picture to the collage after the baby is born stating that he or she “did nine months on the inside.”
These pregnancy announcement ideas were our favorite but feel free to adapt them to your needs or go completely in another way, such as making a video or Pinterest profile for the new baby. The sky is the limit when it comes to pregnancy announcements ideas and the best one is the one you love the most. A baby is a special gift in your family so make sure you treat the announcement accordingly. These pregnancy announcement ideas will definitely remain in the hearts of your friends for years to come.
