“She is not expecting,” actress Mila Kunis’ rep told the Daily Mail on Monday to address circulating rumors that she was pregnant with former That 70′s Show costar Ashton Kutcher’s baby. The couple has been dating for five months. The speculation began after Kunis was spotted in a baggy tanktop with horizontal stripes while on a coffee date with Kutcher, according to UsMagazine.com. Kutcher is currently the highest paid US actor after taking over the Two and a Half Men leading role, and had been married to actress Demi Moore from 2005 to 2011.
What are some ways to announce pregnancy news to friends and family?
While you may be excited to tell a few people in person, how do you let everyone know you’re having a child? Besides wearing a sign, you should take a methodical approach to inform the people in your life. They’ll want to know, and here’s how you tell them.
1. Picture Postcards: Anyone interested by the news that you had a child will want to see a picture of the baby. A shot of the newborn with family is something people will stick on their fridges. If you’re having a baby shower, you could use the postcards to get the details out.
2. Baby Shower: Civilization designed baby showers as a template to announce an upcoming child. Once you’ve told your inner circle of friends and family, you can send out baby shower invitations to everyone else. If you haven’t been caught by surprise, you should have ample time to plan your baby shower by scheduling it closer to the due date. The invitations will serve to let the word out, and you’ll probably get some gifts out of it.
3. Other Rituals: Baptisms, and other religious ceremonies have friends and family congregating. Any sort of family ritual is a good opportunity to assemble the important people in your life for such an important day in your life. Cigars are a traditional way for a new father to spread the word to friends, and perhaps work colleagues. It’s just something you can give out, besides cupcakes.
