While each one may differ in style, they are all guaranteed to move you and any future parent reading this.
This smart mom found a sneaky and terribly yummy way to let their little one's classmates know about the new baby on the way.
Getting a crash course in biology via sweet doughnut sounds like a day well spent. Let's get this belly growing competition started!
Goodbye Dear Sleep
With a third on the way, these parents know the drill by now. Adding more love to the mix sounds fun, is it worth losing sleepover? Oh yes! At least according to big brother. Little sister may be having some trouble accepting her new role as the middle child.
Still, we have no doubt that when baby three enters the picture, those tears will dry right up.
This Bob Ross inspired pregnancy announcement perfectly references the artist's happy accident philosophy. And, honestly, not many things say "happy accident" like unexpectedly finding out you're pregnant.
We also give them kudos for recreating the perfect Bob Ross moment, shirt, wig, stomach canvass, and all. This is the perfect Instagram post. Congratulations.
Generation Netflix and Chill
Too much"Netflix and Chill" landed these parents-to-be in a whole new reality. Truth be told, this is probably responsible for many pregnancy announcements in the last few years, though not many are willing to admit it.
It does beg the question, what exactly was the catalyst? Was it another Netflix documentary? Those films can really get you pondering about life.
The Cat Knows
This cat does not look too pleased over the news. Though it does seem to be learning a whole lot of new things about humans and babies. At least we think. From the look of the cover, this book seems to be targeted at dogs and not cats, so there might be some things getting lost in translation
Either way, kitty is not amused and is likely sensing big changes when comes to attention.
Simple and to the point. This couple decided to use the "Bump Ahead" road sign to tell their loved ones what's ahead. That is one big bump they're about to encounter. And it doesn't just end after the bump.
We could get into specifics but perhaps this will suffice.
Prepping The Siblings
We all know that grown-ups have to do some major adjusting to do when bringing a new baby into this world, (even if it's not their first rodeo) but let's not forget about new siblings. Expert big-sister here shows just how tough it is with her 101 class.
It's a fantastic way to get the little ones to adapt while at the same time telling the world, in the cutest way, possible that mama is expecting.
Teacher's Got News
This teacher spilled the beans to her first-graders with the help of her trusted "elf on a shelf" and a clever little "crack the code" worksheet. Her smart kids obviously aced it and figured out the secret.
Do we count this as the official maternity leave notice? We might need a principals' signature at the bottom. Either way, it's adorable.
Not everyone acts excited when marveling over an ultra-sound. This is not because they don't care about the miracle of life, but sometimes they can't quite figure out what they're looking it. Thanks to this mom-to-be, any potential confusion is out the window.
With the use of an adorable x-ray illustration, we all know exactly what's cooking. This is much appreciated.
Who's The Dad?
Families can take many forms, which is why this couple took to social media to pre-empt any unnecessary questions in the future. Congratulations to these two-moms-to-be. Granted, right now they look pretty terrified.
We trust that nine months later it will be all smiles. Well, screaming, tears, lack of sleep, and smiles.
This family decided to do away with the kitschy messages and tell it like it is. Nothing screams gritty reality like the expressions of this dad and his two little ones. Mom seems to be safely behind the camera this time, perhaps for the better.
This is the perfect pregnancy announcement as it's both hilarious and adorable.
Beach Buddy On The Way
Finally, baby number one will have a fellow beach buddy to soak up the sun with. She's fully prepared and has (well, mom) has set up and an extra seat, even with a pair of flip-flops. This picture definitely went viral and inspired parents around the world to do the same.
Unfortunately big sis, still some waiting to do. She might want to come back next season.
Ain't no better way to welcome a spring baby than by falling pregnant around the holidays. And there is no better time to break such great news. It's all about family, warmth, gifts, and of course ample opportunity for some smart wordplay.
These folks outdid themselves with the Silent Ends sign. No truer statement has ever been said.
These parents had it pretty even for a while until they decided to go ahead and do round number three. This tie-breaking baby will be quite the game-changer.
Whatever the gender, I'm sure we can agree, matching outfits is the way to go.
Batman has been a successful one-man show for many years. When Robin joined his side, there was a brief adjustment period. That's pretty much what's going down over here. It's time to make way for a new superhero in town.
No doubt young Robin is going to steal the show. Batwoman seems a little less concerned over the new arrival.
Number Two On The Way
This may not appeal to everyone but it is undeniably funny! Announcing the arrival of "number two" via this cute potty training shot surely gets the message across.
If baby number two looks anything like their older sister, that is going to be just adorable.
Goodbye Only Child Status
This kid had their fair share of the spotlight, but alas, the parents thought their little one needed a sibling. While he may disagree, we are certain that everybody else is simply thrilled.
Oh well. He'll come around soon enough and will probably never look back.
Why Stop There?
Some people want big families! You can't blame them! It's just more love to share, which is why these parents just kept going. With a fourth on the way, these two don't quite know for sure when it will stop.
Keep going until you drop we suppose. Clearly they have gotten a lot out of that pregnancy book.
We love the extremely cordial letter. Not that parents ever would ever turn down a promotion like that! No doubt the reply was an immediate "yes." These must be the world's happiest grandparents-to-be.
Getting "promoted" to parents, however, now that's one tough job that we hope they're prepared for!
Getting The Terminology Right
As we saw above, the grandparent promotion is a big leap. While everyone loves newborn babies, not everyone is ready for the new status, and this explains the T-shirt.
This "gramps" is not ready for that, though somehow thinks "pop pop" is more youthful. Either way, that sure is a roundabout way to break the news!
The Big Sister Title
This big-sister-to-be looks positively thrilled. Little does she know that down the line, tears will be had. Still, nothing could be more exciting than welcoming a new baby sibling.
Even with all that sibling rivalry, there is nothing more beautiful than having a feisty big sister.
Stepping Into New Shoes
Nothing says "aww" like adorable baby shoes. This couple's announcement took advantage of that perfectly. They also may have inadvertently thrown in a gender reveal too.
At least there are no more surprises up their sleeves. Well, we still need to know the little person who will be filling those shoes.
This is a smart use of wordplay. This couple cleverly used a jar of Prego pasta sauce to spill the beans to their friends and family. No need for elaborate posters and banners. Just a good old jar of trusty pasta sauce.
That's dinner too. Hey, when you're about to be expecting, it's good to be resourceful
It's a Baby Girl!
Here we have a wonderfully creative pregnancy announcement and simultaneous gender reveal. While the whole ultrasound with skirt and bow get-up is adorable, we can't wait to see that fully formed baby rocking that cute little outfit.
We can see already how it suits her!
Say It Like It Is
We all love babies. We love babies so much, in fact, that sometimes it doesn't even matter how you announce it. These parents just had to paint it all on the walls and, boy, do we get the picture.
In case it wasn't %100 clear, the sonogram they're holding is guaranteed to curb any potential confusion as to what "it" is.
Something About Ducklings
This couple took to nature to share their baby on the way announcement with the world. The placement of the little rubber duckies on the right might be telling us something.
Of course, then there's the strategically placed rubber ducky on the back of the mother duck. Smart.
These parents were "egg-specting" their little one so naturally announcing the news on an egg seemed appropriate. They then cracked it open, removed the yolk, and presented their little one's name!
That must have been a messy announcement behind the scenes! Sweet nonetheless.
There's a bump ahead but this couple is prepared! With one in hand and one on the way, these folks know these how bumpy these roads can get.
We wonder if their little boy is scanning the skies for the stork that's about to drop off their baby.
The Supermarket Run
Having a baby seriously changes your shopping habits. No longer will you be stacking up on binge-able snacks and mac and cheese. It's all about baby formula, stuffed animals, and diapers. Many, many diapers.
This couple figured that out pretty soon, making this preggo announcement hilarious and just too true.
Star Wars Babies
These kids have some dedicated Star Wars fans for parents with this adorable baby announcement poster. Seeing as the rest are dressed up as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Yoda, we wonder who the fourth one will be?
Could he or she have a slightly dark side? Either way, this is going to be one fun gang!
This travel montage is a fantastic pregnancy announcement. These feet shots around the world show us how this couple is finally ready to make some space for a new travel partner. Well, maybe when baby is ready to walk at least.
For now, these traveling lovers have to put a pin in the map for a little bit
It's likely that at first, this sneaky little announcement went unnoticed, but those who paid close attention knew exactly what was cooking...or erm.. brewing.
While Baby Thompson is pushing three years old now, those beer bottles are probably on display still somewhere.
Coming Soon, Parental Advisory
Nothing says "get ready for this" like a huge movie poster. For anyone who knows about parenting, you can pretty much describe it as one long action multi-genre blockbuster.
No one's missing out on this one. Bring out the snack, it's going to be quite the ride.
Little Michael Phelps
Dad definitely took the lead on this one. This funny announcement lets everyone know that pop's little swimmers got the job done. Congratulations, dad (and mom!) That's probably going to be one fierce little baby.
A fierce kid needs a lot of energy though, and those little swimmers know it.
There's only one thing that can outdo a "we're expecting" announcement, and that is clearly "we're expecting twins!" We won't even go into triplets now.
This amazing graffiti announcement needed a little editing to really get the news across. Those facial expressions are as accurate as possible.
Eating Habits Out of Whack
Pregnancy does strange things to your appetite, which could explain why this ice-cream got pickles for toppings. When eating for two, the body tends to crave weird combinations of foods.
It's just another weird thing to happen when you're expecting.
Mommy's Going To Be Busy
Mommy's little girl is getting ready for her new role as "Big Sis." With twins on the way, this family is gearing up for some major changes.
Not to worry! This one's got it handled.
All right stop collaborate and listen, because we have something to say. Referencing this Vanilla Ice song to make a pregnancy announcement is one of the funniest things we have seen so far.
In case you're not familiar with the 1989 rap hit, "baby" is what comes after "ice ice." And that baby is coming for sure.
There is a clear winner of this battle of the bellies. No amount of apple and juice can compete with a whole baby. It was a close call with that beer belly though, but it just won't cut it.
Nice try, guys but this mama reigns supreme.
A New Addition
These dog parents decided it was time to make this family a little bigger and finally got working on getting Rover a much-needed little human.
This going to be one ridiculously cute duo. A messy one, but a cute one nonetheless.
Pink or Blue...
It doesn't really matter what's coming, the fact is, this mommy is preggo with twins. This sweet baby announcement didn't need any gimmicks, just a big belly and a loving smile of a mother.
Whatever will be, no doubt that these twins are going to be just perfect.
Let's Keep It a Secret For Now
Occasionally babies end up being quite the big surprise. And sometimes even hubby can be late to the party. Case in point, this picture over here. Just turn around, dude!
Too bad that part didn't make it on camera. That must have been a sight to behold.
Can You Guess?
In keeping with the theme of surprising clueless fathers, this mom-to-be decided to pull off a similar stunt. In her case, it resulted in a slightly awkward hug. But fear not, it will all make sense in a minute
Their social media followers must have gone crazy for this funny post.
You're a Winner
Everyone is a winner in this Scratch & Win pregnancy announcement! Nothing can beat the gift of a precious baby, but we have a feeling that these parents will soon be in need of some sleep vouchers.
This is a great way to make an announcement. Print a bunch out and give them to the whole family.
This proud parents-to-be want to assure everyone that this was a choice. Perhaps these two are prone to accidents, but this time, apparently, it was not on purpose.
Whatever the case, we are sure that everyone will be over the moon.
Here we have another great baby announcement done in the style of a movie poster. Among the many things that come with having a baby, sibling rivalry can be one of the major factors.
In the end, it all works out, but there can be some tough years! At least this family is super prepared.
A Major Promotion
Speaking of siblings, this little one is about to go through the same thing, except this mom decided to put a slightly different spin on it and promote her baby to big brother!
Those shades are fit for a boss. He was born for this role.
When hubby gulped down his morning cup of coffee, he didn't quite expect to see what was written at the bottom. That sweet little treat is just the pick-up he needed.
Looking for a way to break the news? This probably looks like the way to go.
The Miracle Baby
We have all seen some hilarious baby announcements. While this one may not make you chuckle, it sure will warm your heart. After years of unsuccessful tries, this family finally got their little miracle.
This beautiful announcement definitely is the winner.
