Must-Watch: The Harry Potter Pregnancy Announcement to Top Them All
What better way to announce the magic of pregnancy than with a video shot at Harry Potter World?
Portland vloggers James and Ashley Chick and their adorable daughter—who they affectionately refer to as Baby Chick—have been documenting their lives on their YouTube channel The Chick's Life since back in January of 2014. So when it came time to create a pregnancy announcement for baby #2, there was little doubt the couple would turn out something epic.
Shot by James (who just happens to be a filmmaker) at Harry Potter World at Universal Studios in Orlando, the video opens with mom and daughter strolling through the picturesque wizarding village of Hogsmeade.
When they get to Dervish and Banges—a shop known for selling and repairing magical items—they head inside to find an amazing assortment of Sneakoscopes, Spectrespecs, and Omnioculars, plus plenty of brooms and robes and old journals and books.
Looks like the shopping trip was success, because Baby Chick comes out of the store clutching a tiny beat-up case in her hands. But then what in the name of Merlin's pants!—she takes off running with it down High Street. Ashley chases after her, natch, past all the thatched roof cottages and the train station that's home to the Hogswarts Express. But even with the aid of a wand, Mom still can't catch up with her little wizard, who we're pretty sure is going to grow up to be a Seeker.
Eventually, Baby Chick finds what—make that WHO—she is looking for, all but running straight into her backpack-toting dad. She hands over the tiny case, which he opens to find something even more covetedthan an Acid Pop or Sorcerer's stone hidden inside—it's an ultrasound picture of Ashley's pregnant belly!
"Baby Chick #2," the text on screen then reveals. "The Magic Begins February 2017."
