Expecting? Here Are 90 Brilliant Pregnancy Announcement Captions

We are having a baby announcement

Well-thought-out pregnancy announcement captions for Instagram set the bar for the rest of your baby news as you approach The Birth Day. The thing is, with people around the world posting their baby announcements on social media every day, you’re hard-pressed to make yours unique and personal.

Before I knew this, I told my friends about my second pregnancy by just posting a random photo of a stork with the caption, “Baby on the way!” Unwittingly, I used a caption that hundreds of other moms-to-be thought of, as well.

So I came up with these 90 captions—some are funny, some are touching—for parents who want to make their pregnancy news really shine. They’re guaranteed to make your announcement truly memorable, and set the tone for future baby news, such as your gender reveal.

While you pick which one speaks to you, see if you can tweak it to better suit your personality as a couple. Remember, though, to properly credit any book, song, or movie quote you pick to the correct author, songwriter, or screenwriter.

Once you’ve finalized your caption, it’s time to look for the perfect complementary photo or video. Use one that captures the moment: you and your partner holding up a sonogram print-out, the baby’s siblings jumping with joy, the family dogs looking proud and befuddled in their “big sib!” t-shirts, or a shot of a cute onesie. The more personal the image, the better. That will make your social media post your own.

Finally, now that you’re aware of the importance of using the right pregnancy announcement caption, let’s begin. Here’s to finding the perfect pregnancy announcement caption to begin your journey into parenthood!
