You can have a lot of fun announcing your pregnancy to your husband. There are a lot of great cards, onesies, coffee mugs, scratch offs and wine labels that are just pure genius or hilarious.
They can be a great way to surprise your husband with the news and make it a moment to remember.
Here is a collection of my favorite pregnancy announcements that you can use to tell your husband.
When to announce your pregnancy to your husband?
When to tell husband you’re pregnant? Once you get that positive test, the sooner the better. Of course, you could share the news right away, but these awesome pregnancy announcements are a lot of fun.
If you wait too long, then he might be able to guess because morning sickness can start early and hit you hard. You will also be making your first appointment at 8 weeks and he might want to come along, which is another reason to tell him sooner than later.
Of course, if the timing works out right, check out my post on Christmas pregnancy announcement ideas.
Surprise Pregnancy Announcements to Husband
Consider surprising your husband with the news just to be able to swatch his reaction. Even if you both are actively trying, you can still surprise hubby. Be sure to grab your pregnancy announcement asap after that positive test so you can tell him before he guesses it.
I really love surprise coffee mug pregnancy announcements because not only do you get an awesome coffee mug but also you can very easily pour him a cup of coffee and wait till he reads the mug. Just be sure to capture the moment!
Hilarious Ways to Tell Husband You’re Pregnant
There are many different approaches you could take here. While there are so many sweet and loving ways to tell your husband, there are also a lot of really funny sayings. So if you are looking for something funny, try one of these sayings on a card, shirt, or mug.
- My boobs are about to get even more amazing.
- We have a winner (picture of a sperm).
- You’re pullout game is weak. Surprise!
- Take it easy on me, my wife is pregnant.
No matter what approach you take, here are my favorite cards, cups, shirts, and wine labels to tell your husband the big news.
How to tell your Husband You’re Pregnant Again
You can have just as much fun the second or even third time around with telling your husband you’re pregnant again. My absolute favorite ideas are including your first child with either a big brother announcement or a big sister announcement.
You can put them in a shirt that says big sister or big brother. They could give dad a gift for a holiday or birthday including any of the ideas below. Or just grab a shirt or card that says it all: “oops we did it again!”
Pregnancy Announcement Cards for Your Husband
A simple yet sweet way to announce your pregnancy to your husband is a card. These can be anything from super sweet to hilarious. You can write a special note inside and keep it as a keepsake.
If you want something classic, then I love this card that says on the inside dad and year.
Another very sweet card is this one that says the only thing better than having you as my husband is our baby having you as a dad. I absolutely love that.
If you are looking for a funny card, then these might be more up your alley. I really like this card that says my boobs are about to get even more amazing because I think it would take my husband a minute to figure it out.
Another hilarious card is this one that says “your pull out game is weak”.
If your husband’s birthday is soon, then wait to tell him and grab this card that says your birthday present is on back order.
And for those of us who are big fans of Friends, this card that says “the one where (name) becomes a DAD is perfect.
Pregnancy Announcement Coffee Mugs for Husband
If you want to get something more than a card, then a coffee cup is a great pick. I got my husband one when he became a dad. I like coffee cups because they are such a practical gift that you can use over and over again.
You could wrap it and give it to him as a gift or just serve him coffee in it. See how long it takes for him to realize what it says.
This is the perfect coffee cup to use and see how long it takes him read the fine print. Once that coffee kicks in and he does read the fine print that says “I’m pregnant”, you can spend the whole morning discussing just how excited you both are.
A very cute and sweet coffee cup that says one the best husbands get promoted to Daddy is a great way to break the news. He will keep it for years to come.
If you want something funny, then this cup that says We have a Winner is a great option.
I got my husband this mug because I just love Papa Bear. You can even grab a second with Mama Bear on it so you two have matching cups.
Pregnancy Announcement Onesies for Husband
Onesies make a great gift because they are so cute, and you get to use them when baby finally arrives.
I highly recommend you order a 0-3 month or bigger. Some babies come out already fitting into 0-3 months or they only fit into newborn size for a week. Get the most out of the onesie by picking a bigger size.
Here are my favorite daddy onesies to announce your pregnancy to your husband.
A classic hello daddy onesie that comes in a gift box with a little note that says “could be pink could be blue all we know is that we are due!!
A Hi Daddy onesie. I love this one because it is such a sweet message. It says “Mommy told me that you are awesome and that you will be an amazing father. I can’t wait to meet you!” You could put this on a card too.
Another classic onesie is to use your last name. A perfect onesie to use for pregnancy announcement photos as well as telling your husband.
If you want a onesie that will make him laugh, this onesie says “he shoots, he sores!”
You could also grab a Father’s Day onesie but make sure you do the math and get the correct size. That way your baby can wear it on the First Father’s Day.
For those of us you have husbands who play video games, this onesie that says “player 3 has entered the game”
If your husband is into football, grab a onesie that says “on Sundays we watch with Daddy”. Once baby arrives, it is the perfect outfit for a snuggle up on Dad for a good Sunday nap. Another option for your sports fan is to grab a onesie of their favorite sports team.
This cute onesie that says daddy’s drinking buddy is perfect to pair with some beer. Buy the case and then grab labels that say we’re expecting.
Another classic and sweet daddy onesie, I swear there are so many to chose from.
I wish I had found this one when telling my husband because I would have grabbed it. Daddy’s backup is adorable.
If you want to include a onesie but want one that doesn’t say dad. This is perfect because it is totally an adventure. The best adventure yet!
And you really can find just about any type of onesie you could imagine. And if you can’t find what you are looking for, then create your own either through Etsy, Urban Prints or Custom Ink.
Pregnancy Announcement Scratch offs for Husband
If you really want to surprise him, then this Lucky Clovers Lottery Card is perfect. You could even get his reaction on video. Since he will be busy scratching the card, you can quietly pull your phone out and video.
If you want to do a scratch off card, then this little note to tell you is perfect. I really like how you get to pick the message which can be anything from Scratch off card: little note to tell you.
While searching, I also found this cute on that says “the only thing better than having you as my husband is our baby having you as their daddy.”
Incorporate a Letter Board for Pregnancy Announcement for Husband
I see a lot of people use letter boards. You could write any of these messages you see on the cards, cups, shirts etc. You could grab it just to use in the picture you take of the two of you after you tell him the big news! Or you could put a message on it and wrap it along with other gifts. Lastly, you could just write a message on it and wait to see him notice it for the surprise effect.
Pregnancy Announcement Wine Labels for Husband
One way to tell your husband is over dinner. Grab a bottle on wine and a wine label that will tell him of the good news. It will be an evening to celebrate. And while you can’t drink it, these wine labels are just too good to pass up as a way to tell your husband.
I love this one because it looks just like one from the store.
This one is for those who are big fans of Friends.
I really like this one because it is so to the point.
This label looks like it could be a really wine label.
If your hubby isn’t a fan of wine, then grab these beer labels.
Pregnancy Announcement Puzzles for Husband
Maybe your husband enjoys puzzles or maybe you just want to make him work for it. Here are some awesome custom puzzles that you can gift.
Tell him the good news with this heart shaped puzzle. Order a few and you could also send some to the grandparents to be. They also make a good big sister pregnancy announcement as well.
One customer ordered this puzzle but changed the wording to “Surprise! you are going to be a dad”.
If you want to make it harder to guess until the puzzle is more complete, check out this beautiful wood puzzle that says We’re having a baby.
Lastly, this puzzle not only requires you to put it together but also to solve a riddle. The puzzle says I am very small but very important. I am free but very expensive. You’re going to see me soon. But you can’t see me now. What am I?
Pregnancy Announcement T shirts for Husband
Announce you’re pregnant by giving him a t-shirt. There are so many fun and awesome shirts for dad-to-be.
I know my husband would have loved this shirt. If you are looking for something funny, then grab this take it easy on my, my wife Is pregnant shirt.
Simple but sweet, a great choice to tell your husband he has been promoted to daddy.
My husband would have gladly worn this shirt as an excuse to drink for three. The best part is you eat for two!
Grab papa bear and mama and baby bear shirts. You not only have a great gift to tell hubby that he will be a dad but also cute shirts to take a “we’re expecting “ photo.
I just love papa bear shirts.
If you know your husband just can’t wait to start telling dad jokes, then this dad joke loading shirt will let him start early.
Video gaming husbands will love this shirt that says they have leveled up to daddy!
Pregnancy Announcement Dog Bandanna for Husband
If you two have a fur baby, then include your pup with this awesome Dog Bandanna that says guess what? Mom’s pregnant.
Pregnancy Announcement Personalized Book for Husband
Another way to tell your husband is to make a book. These personalized books can be used to make it easy. This is also a great way to tell siblings about the new baby as well.
Pregnancy Announcement Baby Board Book Ideas for Husband
Jump start on that library by grabbing a book that your husband can read to baby while in utero and after they are born. Here are some of the most precious baby and daddy books. Make sure to write a sweet note to your husband on the inside of the front cover.
Your Baby’s first word will be dada by Jimmy Fallon is very funny and a perfect book to read to baby.
Daddy hugs by Karen Katz is adorable. I bought it for my husband and he reads it to our daughter every night. There is a mom version too.
Daddy and me by Karen Katz is another fantastic book for dad.
My dad is amazing by Sabrina Moyle is a whole book that tells you just how great dad is using comparative comparisons like tougher than a Rhino Wrestler.
Me and my dad by Alison Ritchie is the tale of a papa bear and baby bear who go on adventures exploring mountains, swimming and telling stories.
If you are a big fan of Little critter like me then Just me and my dad is a great choice.
Made for me by Zack Bush is awesome for a baby girl or a baby boy.
I love you daddy by Jillian Harker is very sweet and I love the artwork in this book.
Pregnancy Announcement Key chains for Husband:
Still not sure what to get dad-to-be, maybe a key chain would work.
An awesome key chain that any new dad would love. I like how it is small but still says a lot.
I just had to include this key chain because it has the very sweet message that you find on cards. It says, “The only thing better than having you as my husband is our children having you as their dad.”
Pregnancy Announcement Fishing Lure for Husband
