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

Maybe you will spell out something cheeky on a letterboard or say it with a funny shirt. Perhaps you will 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 are expecting.

Sharing how you told the daddy-to-be is often a raw, funny way to announce a pregnancy. Consider catching his reaction to the positive test on video (especially if this baby was a surprise!).

Keepin’ It Real Funny Pregnancy Announcement

Morning sickness, confused toddler, and “Here we go again...” from Dad? Sounds about right. It is funny because it is true, so use those real-life moments to your advantage to create a hilariously relatable pregnancy announcement. 

Not-So-Social Distancing Funny Pregnancy Announcement

Mum and Dad did not get the memo to stay six feet apart, and all that time in quarantine was put to good use. This is a timely baby announcement that will be amazing to look back on…once we are long past these pandemic times. 

Miss You, Wine! Funny Pregnancy Announcement

Goodbye, dear friend, until we meet again! This wine-theme pregnancy announcement is too funny. 

Kids Being Kids Funny Pregnancy Announcement

Give us those honest reactions from the children—and let them do the talking! There is nothing funnier than a disgruntled toddler’s reaction to the news of a new baby on the way. Keep it chilled out, with no special outfit to embrace the chaos. A simple pregnancy post with the kids just being themselves is just as easy as it is funny.

Will the Britney song ever not be perfect for moments like these? Whether on a shirt, sign, or text overlay on your simple pregnancy announcement, this is one funny line that does the trick when you are expecting any baby after your first.  

Ice, Ice...BABY Pregnancy Announcement

Another vintage music moment that pairs perfectly with funny baby announcements, all you need is two bags (or cubes!) of ice and a pregnant lady. Boom! 

Baby Shark Pregnancy Announcement

Take a kids’ classic and turn it into baby-news gold. That little shark is due due due due due due due! Another idea is to just picture Mummy Shark with similar wording!  

Only Child Status Expiring Funny Pregnancy Announcement

Another fun way to get an older sibling involved! Sure, a baby brother or sister will be a blessing in the end, but it is kind of too cute to poke a little fun at the no-longer-only child when you can. A “cot eviction” photo shoot is a similarly hilarious idea. 

Bump Incoming 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 will be comical to see how realistic your partner can draw your bump.

Anatomy of a Bump Funny Pregnancy Announcement

Whatcha got in there, Mama? Daddy’s beer belly and an optional big sibling full of bananas (or juice... or Goldfish crackers?) make this funny pregnancy announcement extra cute.

Nowadays, Alexa and all the other beloved robots in our lives do a lot of the heavy lifting. This onesie is a cheeky way to have her 'help” break the news to the happy grandparents-to-be. You can take a photo like this to share on social media, but mail or hand Grandma the actual onesie first.

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