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 before you share it on social media. 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 “Guess what?!” card and then give it to him. Check out this cute package from Amazon that can be a great fit. 

Here are a few more cute messages you can use:

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 a box of his favorite treat and then write “I’m pregnant” or “Eat up, my mommy doesn’t want to be the only one with a belly” on the inside of the box. It will be such a sweet surprise.

And another super cool idea is to ask him to not refill your glass of wine during one of your evenings together. 

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. 

Please note, if this mug is currently not available on Amazon and you really like this idea – you can use ZEYAR Acrylic Paint Pens for Porcelain like this one from Amazon to write your announcement message on any mug or plate you want. This is actually even cooler because you can even draw something cute or funny. Here is how it looks:

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 or a cute frame like this one from Amazon and surprise him with it.

Here are a few inspiring ideas for how it can look like with an ultrasound:

9. Let your child announce it

10. Hide the pregnancy test

Hide the pregnancy test in a place that he can find it but where he won’t see it coming, for example, one of the rooms, and decorate it. Then make sure to take a video. 

11. Pregnancy reveal poem


You can write him a pregnancy reveal poem and craft words that are just right for a memorable delivery that he will always cherish.

Here are a few poem ideas:

  • Roses are red, violets are blue, On [due date], Our little miracle is due.
  • Roses are red, Diapers aren’t fun, But sometime in (month), We get to see baby #1.
  • First comes love, then comes marriage, in (month) we will be pushing a baby carriage.

Here are a few pregnancy quotes that you can add:

  • The best is yet to come… [due date]
  • And then there were three… [due date]
  • And soon the world shall know… (with an ultrasound photo)
  • We’re adding a new little pumpkin to our patch in (birth month and year)
  • All because two people fell in love
  • Shit just got real
