Face it, parents: Surprising friends and family with news that you're pregnant is no longer as easy as putting a gentle hand on your belly and saying "no" to a glass of wine with a sly wink. The Internet has set the bar for pregnancy announcements pretty darn high.

But if you think you need to hire a video crew to really wow the masses, you're wrong. One family going viral thanks to a post on Life of Dad's Facebook page showed just how simple it is to nail the pregnancy announcement.

It's just... simple. And true. Which is what you've got to love about the announcement.
