Pregnancy is one of the most important times in any woman’s life.
But how do you break the news to your baby daddy, especially if the pregnancy was unplanned? You could jokingly send him links about a fleshlight comparison, but is that really appropriate? You could also just leave the positive pregnancy test for him to find, but where’s the fun in that?
If you’re looking for a way to break the news, here are seven unique ways to tell your partner that he will soon become a father.
1. On A Starbucks Coffee
Ask the barista to help you share the news on your partner’s coffee cup. Just make sure that you’re drinking decaf!
2. With A Box Of Donuts or Pizza
Buy a large box of donuts or pizza and write the exciting message inside. Hopefully, the food will ease your man’s anxiety?
3. With Your Pet
Including your pet in your news can be an adorable way to announce your pregnancy. Perhaps your baby and your dog or cat will even become best friends in the future.
4. Write It On Their Plate
Remember the phrase, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach?” Write the exciting news on the bottom of your significant other’s plate, then fill it with food and wait for his response.
5. Propose A Toast
Buy a bottle of wine and invite some friends to dinner. Once the glasses are full of wine or champagne, just say, “Let someone else drink my glass for me.” Your friends (and your partner) will catch on quickly!
6. Put A Note In An Easter Egg
If you’re breaking the news during Easter, then place notes in your Easter eggs! An Easter-themed announcement is a cute way to hop right to the exciting news!
7. Order A Custom Cake Or Pie
You can order a custom pie or cake with an message informing your partner and friends about your pregnancy. They’ll definitely enjoy the treat afterwards!
Regardless of the way you tell your boyfriend about your pregnancy, he will surely feel emotional. The main thing to remember is that you both love each other, so don’t be afraid to share the excitement (and the stress) together in a creative way!
