One of the best things about being pregnant is getting to share the amazing, happy news with people you love. Especially grandparents!

Grandparents will watch your kiddos at the drop of a hat (for free, bless their hearts), treat them like royalty and love them unconditionally. They are the best, and we are forever grateful for them.

So how do you tell these VIPs some of the most important news of their lives?


Maybe you guys blurt it out next time you see them because you can't contain your excitement, or maybe you plan something fun and creative for them. Either way, they've been waiting for this moment and it's going to be awesome.

We rounded up the best grandparent announcement ideas out there. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may even pee your pants like one grandma did. (Reminder: Do your Kegels.)
