Pregnancy announcements these days are getting more and more creative and well-thought out. With social media, the pregnancy news of celebrities spreads in a matter of seconds. All the more if the way it was announced was crazy, the internet will break!
If you are planning to get pregnant this year, we've rounded up creative and "pasabog" pregnancy announcements from celebrities this 2023 for inspo. Plus, tips on how you can do it (except for number 1).
6 fun and crazy ways to announce pregnancy this 2023
1. Perform on a suspended platform during the Super Bowl halftime show ala Mama Riri
Hands down, Rihanna's performance during the Apple Music Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show last February 12 was probably the most-watched pregnancy announcement of the year, heck, in this lifetime!
Wearing all red and with red lipstick, Rihanna danced, flew, and floated in mid-air. During her last song, Diamonds, she rubbed her belly and it confirmed (also her publicist said) that she's having another baby with rapper A$AP Rocky.
How to do it: Umm, we suggest that you skip this one and don't do it, okay? Opt for a simple TikTok dance then go ahead with the reveal. No need for harness and a floating stage, are we clear about this?
2. Film your husband's reaction like Lovely Abella
For a rather low-key pregnancy announcement, entrepreneur Lovely Abella shared a very raw and authentic video of her filming herself in the bedroom after seeing the results of her pregnancy test.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
She then went on to tell her husband Benj Manalo, who was asleep that time. They ended up crying because apparently, Benj's sperm count was really low and so they never thought they'd be able to conceive. Watch the video here.
How to do it: If you have been experiencing pregnancy symptoms, document the moment when you take a pregnancy test. Then tell your husband about it, either face-to-face or via video call! His reaction is going to be priceless!
3. Record your friends' reactions and put them together in a "commercial" like Quark Henares
For a fun and ingenious way to announce that there is a bun in your oven, take it from Quark Henares and Bianca Yuzon, who shot their friends and families' reaction videos and turned it into a "commercial!" One for the books! Watch it here.CONTINUE READING BELOWwatch now

How to be more sensitive in sharing pregnancy news
Before posting this good news on social media, you might want to consider sharing it privately with your closest relatives and friends. Dr. Emma Symes, a perinatal psychologist in Australia said that although pregnancy announcements are happy news for the couple, there are people in your circle who are having a hard time conceiving and might feel triggered when you finally post yours.
"People announcing their pregnancy on social media often don't make public any of their own struggles with loss or infertility, so people just see the happy shots of the happy mother or couple," Dr. Symes said.

She suggests, especially if you know some people might be affected when you share the news that you include something along these lines: 'We are celebrating right now, but our hearts extend to anyone who is struggling with infertility or loss.'
It's not too much to ask, right?
