Everything is perfect about this clever lesbian pregnancy announcement

When you are part of a lesbian couple, how do you announce your pregnancy? These women may have won the internet with their pregnancy announcement.

Pregnancy announcements back in the day used to be nothing more than a simple "I'm pregnant!" or, for the more ambitious, a traditional announcement sent through the mail. Now moms-to-be are planning elaborate surprise announcements, perfect for video, or are cooking up funny or clever photo announcements to share on social media. Some parents-to-be even cleverly disguise their announcements by creating dazzling home movies in which they act out a screenplay they've written, only to reveal at the end — hey, we're pregnant!

Many of the ideas have been done time and time again (and some say overdone), but a pregnancy announcement is always a happy thing to read. However, a lesbian couple pulled together a pretty cute way to announce their impending family member. A Reddit user called MeggoEggo1 posted a photo of her wife clutching her belly and wearing an "I'm pregnant" shirt. The surprise ending? While sporting a shocked expression, her own shirt says, "I'm not the father."

Aside from the typical questions about how they decided who would carry the baby, the photo, which was posted just a few days ago, has gotten a ton of positive responses (and if you're curious, MeggoEggo1 wrote, "My wife has dated men before me so she always assumed she'd have a baby biologically. I had no interest. So it just worked out that way.").

Applause for this cute couple and their quirky shirts. I love that they did this.
