10 Funny Ways to Tell Your Partner You’re Pregnant

By Devan McGuinness |

There really are very few true surprises in life, but one of the biggest — and most memorable — has to be the day you found out you were pregnant. Whether you were trying, it was a surprise, or somewhere in between, the news is still exciting!

One of the best parts about finding out you’re pregnant is that you, and only you, have the honor of telling your partner the big news. And since it’s a moment both of you will want to remember forever — and your child is bound to ask you at some point how you told Daddy — why not make that story more interesting by having a little harmless fun? These moms-to-be certainly did.

I’ve rounded up some of the funniest and most unexpected ways to tell your partner you are pregnant. Click through to check them out!

    with my first one he had an idea that i was so we got a test went home took the test and wasnt even done going on the stick before their was 2 pink lines he heard me screaming “OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!! ( she was a major surprise since we were told we could have kids).
    with my second i still had the second stick from the first test i went about the same time he was geting ready for work i called him to the bathroom ” does this look like 2 pink lines to you?” his reaction not so good since our first was only 4 months old lol but now you cant keep him away from his girls lol

    Our son was a total surprise (I found out I was pregnant a month after we got married). I was about 10 days late, which isn’t unusual, but I wanted to take a pregnancy test to make sure. We went to Wal-Mart, bought the test and I had to pee so bad that I took the test into the ladies bathroom and pee’d on the stick right then. The test told me I was pregnant before the control line even appeared, it was instantaneous. I washed my hands, ran out to the cash register my husband was checking out at and when I showed him the test, he looked and me and said, “ok, what does that mean?” I told him, “it means I am pregnant!” The cashier and the people waiting in line behind us got to share in our exitement :)

    With my daughter I already had a son from a previous relationship, and I found out 3 days before DH’s birthday. I found a shirt for my son that said I’m the Big brother, wrapped it and gave it to him on his birthday! It took a minute to sink in but he was so happy he cried!

    With our second son i found out on the 21st of December… so i wrapped the test up in a little box & told him i couldn’t wait till Christmas for him to open his present…Best Christmas present we had ever had :)

    I got pregnant on Mother’s Day–found out 6 weeks later and gave my husband a Father’s Day card on Father’s Day, from the “new kid” saying “I will see you in person next Father’s Day”!

  7. Tammy says:

    I found out the day before father’s day that I was expecting. I made my Husband a “Happy 1st Father’s Day” card and gave it too him the minute he walked in the door. He was a little confused at first but once he clued in he cried and danced me around the kitchen :)
    I also told my Papa and my Dad that they were going to be a great grandfather and a grandfather with Fathers Day cards as well :)

    These aren’t funny at all. It’s just advertising for your lame products.

  9. Tom says:

    Wow, after just reading the ’28 things not to say to a pregnant lass’, it seems unsurprisingly along those same lazily selfish lines. If you were happy with the attitude (in the formerly mentioned article) that all women are unreasonable & unstable, so watch what you say (most of which come with honest intentions) when they’re pregnant or they’ll attack you/cry themselves to sleep. Then you’ll love the attitude of ‘let’s find some hilariously immature ways to say “you’re gonna be a Dad”‘. It seems that because women have to shoulder the bulk of the hardship during pregnancy that this gives them some free reign to ridicule any emotional transition the man may have to make. All we ever hear is how difficult the woman’s role is & how mothers are such martyrs to the process. Now what would you call a website that suggests; childish ways to tell your man the biggest news of his life, as opposed to the harder, more adult idea of sitting down & talking about it, whilst offering; advice for anyone foolish enough to ask a pregnant woman about the process she is enduring, without holding a committee to properly evaluate how not offend the easily offended? I personally would call this a hypocritically sexist website. The fact that so many sites like this maintain these attitudes is yet more proof of markets pandering to the modern whim of wanting to validate the hypocrisies & inconsistencies of one’s own views as opposed to resolving them logically. These articles sound, to my ears, like the feminist ideal that you can have your cake & eat it too.

  10. Naomi says:

    Tom, well said.

    Just please note it ain’t feminist because there’s no equality in sexist humour.

  11. Chris says:

    Tom, it seems that some people choose to live life a little lighter than you. Try not to read too much into the things people say. People are different, as you are apparently. So just let them be. I’m a father myself, and actually found this page amusing. I’m sure there is something out there that you could do to spend your time better, instead of ridicule individuals on the way they choose to go about their lives. Lighten up, tom.

    I asked my hubby what he was doing around early November. He asked “why are we expecting visitors?” To which I replied “well yes”. He then asked if they were coming from New Zealand and I replied to that no that this person was coming from a little closer to home! He still looked confused and asked who it was. I told him it was someone little, much smaller than our 16mth old daughter. Took him a while, but then he clicked!!! And then he started jumping around the room and asking me if it was true! !

  13. Stacey says:

    I thought long and hard about how I was going to tell my husband that I was pregnant. But then it hit me… We eat a lot of spaghetti in our house, so I went to the store, bought a jar of “PREGO” pasta sauce, and tied blue and pink ribbons to the jar. Then I suggested we have spaghetti the night I told him. I hid the sauce jar in the pantry and made him go get it…..It took him awhile to get it, but when he finally put it together, he was thrilled!

  15. Mrs. Crawford says:

    well my husband was in jail when i first found out. i noticed i started gettin sick ALOT and asked a friend for a favor. he of course consented to help me out. so he cae over i got in the car and we began driving. he asked where we were going and i said the dollar store. i went inside while he waited in the car and when i came out he said he needed to go to walmart. when we went in i told him i needed to use the bathroom. i peed on the stick in the lady’s room. i was so shocked because i thought that i couldnt concieve that i forgot to hide the tests when i looked for my friend. when i found him i was still clutchin the tests he asked what was in my hand and i couldnt answer. i started gettin sick again and dropped the sticks and ran to the bathroom. when i came back he was still standin there mouth wide open. i ended up textin my husband’s phone saying “how’s it feel to be a new dad again?” because he already had a daughter by his ex-wife. he ran from the jail to my house waitin for me to come home and jumped me when i got on the porch.

  16. Willy says:

    These are not quite dumb comments but come close. No one wants to relate birth with jail. Least of all me. I thought this link had ACTUAL validation on cute things to tell your hunny that your expecting………NOT!! They are alright but I heard them before. This site is DUMB!!!!!!!!

  17. Jess says:

    my husband and I got married in 08, immediately started trying for children… after a yr of trying we decided to go to the doctor who informed me my rt tube was blocked and my left tube has scar tissue in it and the likihood of having children was slim to none… we were devastated.. we deployed to Afghanistan May 26, 2009 and i bought multiple books on adoption and looked online at children in foster care, we were actually excited to start that adventure… FF to march 2010, in the desert our food was naturally crappy but i got to where nothing smelled good and i was sick, and was tired alllllll the time… it was about 3am and i was on duty and just thought why not ill just take a test, so went to the aid station luckily my medic was on duty and i went back to the port-a-potty (gross, yes lol) with my flashlight and it instantly turned up 2 lines… i forgot what the lines meant so i ran bk to the aid station ( a good ways) and had to look at the box.. it was YES!!! i instantly started crying.. my husband was asleep in our little connex and i ran in and jumped on him and told him and we both cried.. then i ran to tell my bff at 4am.. ive never been so excited in my life!!!.. i was sick for the entire 9 months, i blame afghanistan… sorry it was lengthy lol

    I can’t wait to experience the first pregnancy with my husband, and I have so many ideas of how I’m going to tell him!

  19. Brittany says:

    I took the test to prove to him I wasn’t pregnant and it came back positive. So I handed him the test and asked him to read it. At first he mis read it (I’m not sure how… That thing def said positive) then he smiled really big hugged me and said you’re pregnant! :)

  20. Kharma says:

    I put the positive pregnancy test inside a baby bottle, then wrapped it up in pink, blue, yellow and “baby” tissue paper, and put that in a gift bag and gave it to him as a surprise present.
