It’s always fun to announce a pregnancy, but if you’re looking for a creative and giggle-inducing way to share the news, we’ve got all the inspiration you need. Funny pregnancy announcements can involve the dog, the big sibs, or a cute theme for just Mom and Dad. 

Maybe you’ll spell out something cheeky on a letterboard or say it with a funny shirt. Perhaps you’ll go all-out with a photo shoot that wows or a home-designed flyer complete with graphics and quotes. Whatever unique, adorable, and—most importantly—hilarious way you pick to announce your baby news will be so special. 

Have fun sharing your pregnancy with friends, family, and Facebook! Here are some funny ideas for how to announce that you’re expecting.

Angry Kitty Funny Pregnancy Announcement

This is such a creative way to announce a baby is growing in there! Chalk is an easy medium, but you can also do paint on paper or even invoke the sentiment on a white board. It’ll be comical to see how realistic your partner can draw your bump.

A couple with a baby is a couple with a baby. A couple with two kids is a 1:1 ratio in discipline, diapers, and drop-off. A couple with three kids? You’re officially outnumbered.
