As of Sunday, August 17th, Christina Aguilera’s baby girl officially has a name: Summer Rain Rutler. The singer and her fiancé Matt Rutler shared their wonderful news on Twitter, writing, “So proud to welcome our beautiful daughter Summer Rain Rutler into the world.” The baby is the happy couple’s first child together, and Aguilera also has a son with ex-husband Jordan Bratman. The new parents announced their engagement in February of this year after meeting on the set of Burlesque in 2010. According to, the songwriter stayed out of the spotlight for most of her second pregnancy and was pretty content about it. “So blissful in taking this time for creating all things blossoming new on the horizon,” she shared. “Album, baby & beautiful music to come.”

What are some creative ways to announce the name of your new baby?

Cupid’s Advice:

Baby announcements are fun for everyone! Each time you turn around, there’s something new on the Internet that you wished you had tried. Baby news is always big news, no matter how small the package. With this thought in mind, we’ve pulled together three adorable ideas to make sure that you have the most talked about baby announcement.

1. For a comical approach: Boast about your news while getting a good laugh out of your loved ones by taking a silly approach to your baby announcement. Play up the stereotype of men fearing a baby on the way and pose a photo of your partner freaking out about the news. Or you could use the “pregnancy cravings” aspect of your baby news and send out a double-sided picture with a giant tub of ice cream, titled “Guess what’s on the way?” Then, on the other side, place a genuinely excited picture to show that you’re both terrified and happy about the news.

2. For a sentimental approach: Black and white photos automatically generate an aura of seriousness, and when you add the right camera angle, you can create a magazine-worthy shot. Send out an adorably constructed picture with your partner. When your little love-bundle is born, hold him or her together with your wedding bands dangling off your angel’s toes. The symbolism behind the two separate entities creating one will resonate with your family and friends, demonstrating the significance of this moment.

3. For the whole family: Getting the whole family involved is another way to make your baby announcement. Your little “big brothers” and/or “big sisters” can line up their shoes. Then, add a pair of baby booties to the end of the line. People will get the idea that another one is on the way! It’s also a chance for you to show off how much your children have grown. An addition to the family is always exciting for everyone, including your pets. For animals, the family is their “pack,” which makes everyone an equally important member. If you’re having a Christmas baby, pose your loveable furry friend next to the tree with a sign that says: “Mom and Dad got me a human for Christmas!” The approach is funny and sweet in one wonderfully-wrapped package.
