Fun Pregnancy Announcement: One Couple’s News Goes Viral on YouTube

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Our family’s reaction to our pregnancy announcement just before Thanksgiving dinner last year is a blur. I remember it one way, my husband remembers it another. Were there 10 seconds of stunned silence, or 30? Was it my cousin or my mother-in-law who first blurted out “Are you joking?!” (Apparently we’d had our families pretty well convinced we weren’t going for babies any time soon!) It was a joyful, thrilling moment — but one that shall have to remain somewhat mysterious in our memories forevermore.

Not so for one couple, Katharine and Kris Camilli. When they announced Katherine’s pregnancy to various loved ones, they recorded it each and every time.

The pair gathered their loved ones in groups, and asked each to pose for a photo. But instead of taking a still pic, they took a series of video recordings — and instead of the typical “Say cheese!” they went with “Kat’s pregnant!” and captured each precious, surprised reaction.

The family pictured above is one example. I loved their screams! Mom-to-be Kat isn’t pictured, but she and dad-to-be each appear in other clips.

The family edited all the moments together into one YouTube video — which has over 750,000 views in just the first few days. Check it out, and try not to choke up just a little.

How did you announce your pregnancy to loved ones?

See Dad-to-Be Get Choked Up in the Sweetest Viral Pregnancy Announcement Video Ever

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Sorry, just give me a second. I’m still a little choked up over this viral video.

Now then, I’m back. And just try not to tear up yourself when you see this one: In order to share the news that she is pregnant, wife Erika wraps up a special gift for hubby Jacob and rolls camera as he unwraps it. As the spouses are both are huge fans of animation in general and the movie Up in particular, she’s bought him an art print of that film’s famous house sitting atop Paradise Falls.

It’s a sweet enough gesture, and doubly sweet that Jacob thinks she’s drawn the pretty thing herself, when in fact she bought it from Etsy.

But what’s on the back is the real kicker: There, she wrote him a poem (continuing a tradition: he wrote her a children’s book when he proposed) that reveals how their future together will unfold — with a baby on the way.

Jacob gets so emotional, he can’t even read it out loud, and turns his back to the camera while he composes himself. It’s such a beautiful moment captured on film, and Erika’s poem is just magical. Read it below and watch the video here. It might be the best thing you see all day.

Adventure Is Out There
By Erika Jackson

Adventure is out there!
I know this to be true
All my greatest adventures
Have always been with you

Adventure is out there!
You always make it so
Whenever inhibition finds me
You remind me to let go

Adventure is out there!
And it will always be
Now that the two of us
Are soon becoming three!

This Is How Gwen Told Gavin She Was Pregnant…

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Telling your mate that you’re pregnant is a really big deal—and lots of us like to do it up in style. But when Gwen Stefani discovered she was expecting her third child, baby Apollo, her method of sharing the news with hubby Gavin Rossdale was a little more unconventional.

As Us Weekly reports, in an appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show yesterday, Gavin spilled the beans on how Gwen told him. “I got this email on the road, from Gwen, and the title was in capitals, ‘LOOK WHAT YOU DID TO ME NOW.’ I was like, ‘What is this?’ My blood pressure went through the roof. And I opened the e-mail, and it was the pregnancy stick.’”

It wasn’t exactly the most romantic way to share the big news, but I’m thinking it’s kind of like how your oldest child gets the completely filled in baby book and thousands of pictures of every milestone along they way, while the second and third kids kind of get the short shaft. For instance, we made three photo books documenting my oldest daughter’s arrival, while there’s one slim volume for my youngest.

Tell us: How did you tell your mate that you were expecting? Did your announcements get a little less elaborate with each additional pregnancy?

5 Things We’ve Learned About Jill Duggar Dillard’s Pregnancy

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Newlywed Jill Duggar Dillard recently announced that she’s expecting, just two months after tying the knot in June. That makes her the latest member of the 19 Kids and Counting family to have a baby on the way (big brother Joshua already has three little ones…and counting). Jill and her husband Derick will welcome their new baby in late March.

Here’s what else we learned about her pregnancy so far, through their big announcements on Good Morning America and People Magazine.

She’s nicknamed the baby. Their little one will be called “Baby Dilly”—at least until they find out the sex and determine a name. (They’re not sure yet if they’ll follow in the Duggar footsteps and choose a letter theme for their baby names.)

She has morning sickness. And apparently, it’s pretty bad. “They should call it ‘pregnancy sickness’ because it’s all day,” she quipped on Good Morning America. (If you’re dealing with the same thing, check out our tips for managing morning sickness.)

She’s craving sour foods. Dill pickles, lemons, lemons with salt—those are all on Jill’s list of must-haves for dealing with her morning sickness—and in fact, hubby Derick carries around a “pregnancy bag” stocked with the essentials for helping his wife curb the nausea.

She’s planning a home birth. Jill Duggar is a trained midwife who has assisted on many births, and likes the vibe of a home birth. I feel like it will be way more relaxing… and having the baby at home with a midwife provides more of that personal care,” she said. (Considering the same? Find out if you’re a good candidate for home birth.)

She’s planning a gender reveal. Just like her big brother and his wife, Anna, Jill and Derick are planning to learn the sex of their baby (and likely, doing that in dramatic fashion during the taping of their show).

Here’s the scoop from GMA:
