LEAVE IT TO YOUR OTHER LITTLE ONE
What first appeared to be a sweet December 2012 holiday tweet starring daughter Maxwell was actually Jessica Simpson‘s surprise announcement of baby-number-two-to-be that was written in the sand.

TWEET A PICTURE THAT’S WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
Busy Philipps got right down to business when she shared a clear shot of the word “Pregnant” on her ClearBlue pregnancy test in December 2012.
LET YOUR BUMP DO ALL THE TALKING
Before dramatically dropping the mic, opening up her sparkly purple blazer, and rubbing her bulging belly at the end of an upbeat “Love on Top” performance at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, Beyoncé dropped a few hints here and there about the “love (that was) growing inside” of her, but basically let her bump speak for itself.
DO IT OVER DINNER AND GAME NIGHT
Even though Aunt Becky carefully crafted the themed menu of baby shrimp, baby corn, and baby back ribs, Uncle Jesse didn’t digest the fact he was going to be a father until the news was revealed in a family game of picture charades during the 1991 Full House episode entitled “Rock the Cradle.” Still, the idea of sharing news you’re expecting over food is a good one — just make sure it’s a bit more eloquent than Darcy’s “I’m pregnant. Can you pass the turnips?” from the 1988 flick For Keeps.
