Pregnancy Announcement Ideas to Husband

20 cute ways to tell your husband you’re pregnant

Your husband will be the first person to know when you are pregnant. Since you get to tell him only once, you have the opportunity to surprise him with the big news. Some of the creative and fun ways to announce your pregnancy to your husband include:

1. Buy him a manual


For a first time dad, a manual will come in handy. Get the “how to be a dad” manual and nicely wrap it up. Surprise him when he least expects.

2. Wrap up the pregnancy test


This one is simple but very memorable. Wrap your pregnancy test together with a “you’re going to be a dad” card and then give it to him.

3. Wear an “I’m pregnant t-shirt”



One of the days when he is late from work, prepare him a wonderful dinner and welcome him home with a “Guess What?! t-shirt”. How long will he take to notice it?

4. Swap out his cup for a bottle

The next time you serve him dinner, don’t place a cup by his dinner table. Use a baby bottle to serve his drink. His first expressions may be of confusion but he will soon get the hang of it.

5. Put a surprise in his dessert

Gift him with a box of his favorite treat and then write “I’m pregnant” on the inside of the box. It will be such a sweet surprise.

6. Put a message in a picture frame


Find a frame or create one with the caption “I love my daddy” accompanied with a note written “picture coming soon”. This one is especially good for your first baby. Here is a cute “I love my daddy” frame available on Amazon.

7. Message in a mug


Get a personalized mug with the beautiful message at the bottom. Once he is done with his drink, he will be excited with the message at the bottom. There are “You’re Going to be a Dad” Coffee Mugs available on Amazon.

8. Ultrasound photo


Give your baby the chance to announce it herself. Print your first ultrasound with an accompanying sweet note of the news, place it in an envelope and surprise him with it.

9. Let your child announce it


If it is your second or third pregnancy, you can have your child wear a t-shirt that announces a new addition to the family. Another option is to give your child the ultrasound to give to your husband while you shoot a memorable video.

Hide the pregnancy test in a place that he can find it but where he won’t see it coming, for example, his shoe.
