4 Unique and Fun Ways To Announce Your Pregnancy
So you’re gonna have a baby? CONGRATULATIONS, here are 4 fun and unique ways to announce your very special pregnancy.
Finding out you’re going to have a baby is one of the most magical moments a person can experience and each pregnancy is remarkable in it’s own way. For 9 months you get to help create a tiny human that will have half of your unique features and half of your loved one’s.
There’s something so soul-filling about it so why not make the announcement equally outstanding?
Here are 4 fun ways to announce your pregnancy

1. Grandfather Clock – Fun Pregnancy Announcement
This one has got to be my top favorite way to announce a pregnancy because it’s so out-of-the-box thinking. You can easily Amazon deliver a grandfather clock to the grandfather to-be with an added note saying, “From your loving daughter and son in law“. It will be so much fun having them guess why in the world you randomly sent them a clock one day.
Or for added fun, hand deliver it yourself and record soon-to-be-grandpa’s reaction!
We did this to my dad for our 1st pregnancy reveal and 8 years later he still has it sitting on his dresser as a memory of that special day. He spent hours trying to figure out why in the world his daughter left a random grandfather clock on his front door steps. hahaha…classic
If I could do this one differently though I would put both clock hands pointing the number 9 just to be thorough 😉
2. Mario Kart! – Fun Pregnancy Announcement
As a 90’s baby, this Mario Kart themed pregnancy announcement is so nostalgic. I know I said the first idea was my favorite but I’m starting to second guess that now because this one is pretty darn cool.
What you’ll love about this one is that it won’t just be hilarious as a first baby pregnancy announcement (dad, mom, baby) but it’s interchangeable. So siblings can be included too and you can use the idea over and over, for your first baby or for your fifth baby.
We did this one when announcing our 3rd child but looking back I really wish I had done better on the graphics. I was just too excited to announce our first baby girl so I rushed it.
Here’s a list of Mario Kart characters you can choose from to make this fun pregnancy announcement idea work for your family:
Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Toad, Donkey Kong, Wario, Waluigi, Morton, Yoshi, Boo
Princess Peach, Wendy, Toadette, Rosalina, Daisy,
If you want the gender to be a surprise then just say, “Mystery Player”.
3. A Punny Video
Make a punny video to any song that insinuates or directly says “we’re having a baby”. There are so many fun ways to announce pregnancy and the creative options are endless. Here’s a list to inspire your creativity:
- Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice
- All American Girl – Carrie Underwood
- Pregnant Again – Loretta Lynn
- Baby Momma – Starrkeisha
- Baby Shark (doo do doo do do do) – Pink Fong
- Oops I Did it Again – Brittney Spears
- Baby One More Time – Brittney Spears
- One’s On The Way – Loretta Lynn
We did our 4th pregnancy announcement to the song One’s On The Way by Loretta Lynn and it was a big hit with our family and friends. If you want to see it you can check out that video here. It was a lot of work but also tons of fun and worth every bit of time put in. It’s our favorite pregnancy reveal yet and our kids ask me to play it constantly because they love seeing themselves messing up my bed, throwing rags out, and running through the house.
4. Partner In Crime
Okay, I know this one isn’t THAT unique but I felt it was worth mentioning because it’s an upgrade from the “sidekick on the way” bit people usually do. Don’t get me wrong, the whole super hero thing is cute but I’d be pretty upset if I was that baby being referred to as my brother’s side kick…ya know?
So for this one choose something that is going to equalize the new baby, like —> PARTNER, buddy, pal, bestie, etc.
