Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are about to have their first celebrity baby. What are some ways of announcing your due date to the world?

Cupid’s Advice:

Announcing your due date isn’t something you need to keep a secret if you don’t want to. What are some ways you can tell your family and friends your exciting news?

1. Photographs: You could do a mini photo shoot with the ultrasound picture and baby shoes. If you have an older child or a pet, include them in the announcement photo. You could have your older child standing next to a chalkboard with something that says, “Big (sister or brother) starting (insert due date)”.  For your pet, you could do something like taking a picture of their paws next to baby shoes. Have fun and get creative!

2. Announce to immediate family: Announcing your pregnancy and due date is an exciting time for you and your partner, as well as for your family and friend. If you don’t want to immediately let everyone on social media know before your close circle does, plan unique announcements for each group! Don’t let the pressure of sharing your due date stress you out; it doesn’t have to be extravagant. A phone call to your mother (instead of texting) means more because it’s personal. Or maybe a cup that says, “World’s Best Grandma/Grandpa/Uncle/Aunt” and a picture of the ultrasound with the due date will be more memorable for years to come.

3. Make something special (or have something special) made to celebrate: You can go beyond having a cup made when you announce your due date. If you’re creative with programs like Photoshop, you could create a movie poster with the due date or make a small trailer with a video editing program (like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker). If you create the movie poster, you could put it in the baby’s room once they’re born.
