Taylor Swift pregnancy announcement

Around this blog, I write all the time about creative pregnancy announcements. Many are so over the top that I end up suggesting they might just be the one to end all others.

But for all the Taylor Swift fans out there, this latest social media pregnancy announcement will surely be the new standard to beat: The megawatt star helped dad-to-be Jesse Rasmussen and his wife, Lindsey, announce they're expecting by way of a fun photo Jesse posted to Twitter.

In the pic, the parents-to-be pose on either side of an LBD-clad Swift, with mom and dad each holding an ultrasound pic. In the middle, Swift wears an excited and surprised-looking smile, while holding a sheet of paper that reads, "Baby's 1st concert!"

Jesse captioned the photo: "Thank you so much @taylorswift13 helping me tell the world IM GOING TO BE A DAD! #BabiesFirstConcert @lindseyjo86."

As if that's not cool enough, the "Shake it Off" singer also followed up with a handwritten personal note of congratulations, which dad also shared on social media.

While Swift is well known to interact warmly and personally with her fans, she's not the first celeb to help ordinary folks announce their pregnancies. Kelly Clarkson, Will Smith, Paul Rudd, and Vanilla Ice are all among those who have gotten in on the fun!
