The Cutest Pregnancy Announcement Ideas To Surprise Your Husband

The other day, I asked on our Facebook group how everyone revealed their pregnancy to the husband/boyfriend. It was really just for fun because I love seeing all the different pregnancy announcement ideas women have.

However, the responses were so good, it inspired me to write a post about it and share my favorite pregnancy reveal ideas.

So I decided to put together the best ways to surprise your spouse that you are pregnant.

In case you are wondering, I know I’m not the only one who loves pregnancy announcements because this video on Youtube about husbands finding out that they are going to be dads has over 3.5 Million views! And that is as of August 2020 and that video is only a couple months old.

Simply put, I am not alone in this 😀

To start you off, let me share this video from Nicole of Healthnut nutrition telling her boyfriend that she was pregnant. It was a “bun in the oven” theme and the reaction is priceless.

Turns out, we can make things a little interesting by surprising our dad-to-be’s when revealing the big news. By the way, if you haven’t got this book already, make sure you get it because it’s like the Expectant mom’s bible.

21 Cute and funny ways to announce your pregnancy to your husband

Without further ado, here are 21 awesome pregnancy announcement ideas that you can use to tell your husband or boyfriend that you are expecting.

1. Hide the pregnancy test

This is a really good idea if you don’t have time to make an elaborate plan for a surprise. On the other hand, if you are not good at keeping a secret from your husband or boyfriend for too long, this is also an excellent option for you.

Idea 1: Hide the positive pregnancy test in a drawer and ask him to get you something from there.

Idea 2: You could also hide the pregnancy test behind the TV stand or something that he won’t make him suspicious and pretend to have dropped something back there and ask for his help to get it.

Position the test in such a way that he will need to put a bit of an effort to find it but also don’t hide it so hard that he will give up before finding it.

2. ‘Always Read The Fine Print’ Preggers Shirt

Get this pregnancy announcement shirt, wear it just casually and act as if everything is normal.

There is a chance that he might notice it immediately but if he doesn’t, it’s okay to ask him what he thinks about the print. Most importantly, he is gonna need to read the fine print.

And then, watch his jaw drop!

3. A Bun in the Oven Pregnancy Reveal

We often hear people saying ‘a bun in the oven’ as an idiom for being pregnant, so what better way to let your husband know that you are pregnant than using your oven and a ‘bun’ (doesn’t have to be a real one).

For instance, you can bake a real bun and keep it in the oven along with a note saying “We are pregnant” or something more personalized.

Alternatively, you can also just keep a baby item (like this onesie or baby shoes) along with a positive pregnancy test in the oven.

Meanwhile, make up an excuse why he needs to help you get something in the oven and surprise! There it is.

4. Scavenger hunt pregnancy reveal

In addition to keeping “a bun in the oven”, you can make things even more interesting by doing a scavenger hunt.

In other words, tell him that there is a secret treasure hidden somewhere in the house and he needs to find it. Then give him the first clue and leave other clues in different parts of the house.

Let the final clue lead him to the big reveal, maybe the bun in the oven or something else.

Make sure to capture everything on video because it will be really fun to watch your husband’s reaction later.

5. Send him a surprise announcement gift box on his birthday

If you want to reveal your pregnancy to your significant other on his birthday, this is perfect for you. Since receiving a gift on his birthday won’t be out of the norm, he will not suspect that there is big news for him.

So, imagine his reaction when he opens his gift box and meets a “hello daddy.”

Certainly get him one that includes sweet words like,“ the only thing better than having you as a husband is our baby having you as a dad” or something sweet and meaningful.

It will be the best present ever!

6. A memorable card

8. Enlist the help of your fur baby.

Do you already have a fur baby? Perfect. Since they are also going to be a big sister or big brother so why not include them?

Hang this cute bandana around the neck just as soon as daddy is about to get home and let him enjoy the news.

9. Hidden Message in a Coffee Mug

If your husband loves coffee, get him this coffee cup with a message at the bottom of the mug. Next, watch for his reaction when he empties the cup.

Keep in mind that you can personalize the message at the bottom of the mug to fit your personalities. Some messages you can use are “you are going to be a dad”, “Daddy to be” if you don’t want to keep him guessing.

On the other hand, if you want the surprise to last a little longer use something like the “The third player enters the game” if he is a gamer or “And the adventure begins.”

Ultimately you want to use a phrase that will resonate with your husband the most.
