5 Hilarious & Heartwarming Reactions to Pregnancy Announcements (VIDEOS)

Awww! 27

Happy GrandparentsThere are few great surprises in life once you're an adult, but actually learning that you're pregnant for the first time is one of them. It's amazing enough to get the news yourself, but when you're ready to share it with friends and families, it's truly one of the most memorable times of your life. 

People come up with all sorts of creative ways to deliver the news, and the reactions are varied but (almost) always touching. Some are just a little more enthusiastic and tear-inducing than others. For example, the parents in this first video are so happy when they get the news from their daughter, you can't help but cheer for them.

Don't you just want to join in their celebration? If only all babies were as joyfully anticipated as this lucky little one. Here are four more awesome reactions to pregnancy news:

Telling siblings about the news can go either way, but this little girl has the sweetest reaction (forward to about 3:20 if you're short on time):

This one didn't go quite as planned when the kids were told, but it's pretty hilarious nonetheless.

Here are two dads who get the news that they're going to be grandpas. There's some profanity, so be careful who's around when you watch, but their joy is infectious.

In this one there's no big emotional outburst, but it's absolutely heartwarming to see this dad react to news that his wife is pregnant after undergoing fertility treatments.

Those are awesome!  I loved the first one, the 2 dads, and the last one.

The best reaction we got was when we told my 14 year old sister-in-law.  She must've said, "You're gonna have a baby??!!" a dozen times!

Crying over them all! My pregnancy (2nd) was a complete shock to everyone, my husband and I included, because we were told we couldnt couldnt have another because of some health issues of mine. Each one is a blessing and these new parents are fortunate to have such supportive families :D

Oh man, the last one made me tear up... I had to see how things turned out because she kept saying "I think so" so I looked at her YouTube... They had a son named Ethan! It's so awesome that they were able to overcome their infertility issues; what a happy ending.

I also loved the first video with the parents. All of these videos were great!

These videos are all so wonderful--especially the 1st one. PURE JOY captured on video! When I was expecting my 1st son, I wrote a poem to include with the ultrasound picture that we gave to my parents to announce we were expecting. Even though my brother had given them grandchildren, there was something truly special when the only daughter shares the joyous news with her Mom. There are so many unique and creative ways to announce your pregnancy to your Mom. In case you haven't heard or seen this one yet, check out the "You're Going to be a Grandma!" gift book (http://www.thegrandmabook.com/). Also makes a great Mother's Day gift.

P.S. This book is based on the original poem that I wrote my Mom 16 years ago. As a "Mom-preneur" I thought their might be other Moms who might be interested in this. Wishing every Mom and Mom-to-be a wonderful Mother's Day filled with joy!
