As anyone who has ever had kids knows, letting people know you’re expecting is kind of awkward and sometimes a little embarrassing. You never know what exactly the right moment to tell is and you don’t know how to break it to people. Obviously, you have already spilled the beans to your closest friends and family on the phone or in person, but what about the rest of the world? All your more distant friends, co-workers, neighbors and casual acquaintances have a right to know too, don’t they?
When it comes to letting the world know you’re expecting – via social media of course – some people like to get creative about it. Since there is nothing more exciting than a new baby, we’ve rounded up the results for you. The most creative pregnancy announcements (and gender reveals) are sometimes clever, sometimes hilarious, sometimes weird and sometimes just cringeworthy. Here are a few of the best.
The Next Babe Ruth
If she is that far along, I don’t think this is a pregnancy announcement – probably more like a Halloween costume. But anyway, this is a weird way to announce a pregnancy. Some might think it is a tad inappropriate (the dad isn’t going to hit her belly with that bat, is he?).
In all their excitement, this couple probably didn’t think this photo all the way through (I hope they thought about the rest of it). But if you’re a baseball fan, I guess it’s kind of cute. The point might be that future-dad hit a home run, or maybe they’re just planning to raise the next major league baseball All-Star champion.
