One of the best parts of pregnancy is sharing the news of your soon-to-be baby with the world through a fun, cute and unique pregnancy announcement. All of a sudden, the news of your growing family goes from a few chosen individuals, to the entire community. And of course, how you share the news is one of the best parts.
Cute pregnancy announcements are already great, but cute holiday pregnancy announcements? Well, it just doesn’t get any better than those. And with St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, you’re in luck! If you’re expecting, but haven’t shared the news yet, then now could be the perfect time for a holiday-themed baby announcement. If you want to announce your pregnancy this St. Patrick’s Day, take a look at some of the lucky ideas we put together.
1. Lucky Charm
A common St. Patrick’s Day theme is the idea of the “lucky charm.” A lucky charm typically refers to a small object believed to bring good luck, such as a coin or a button. For your pregnancy announcement, your new baby could be the lucky charm. For example, “Our new lucky charm is on its way!”
2. Pot of Gold
One familiar concept from Irish traditions is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The idea is, if you travel to the end of the rainbow, you will encounter a pot of treasure. In this circumstance, your little one is the pot of gold. Use a rainbow blanket or a pot of gold in the picture to share about your upcoming treasure.
3. Rainbow Baby
For some couples, conceiving and pregnancy can be a long, challenging road. Thus, the phrase “rainbow baby” was born. A rainbow baby refers to a baby born to a woman after a previous miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death. If this pregnancy is your rainbow baby, share the news with a St. Patrick’s Day spin.
4. Kiss Me, I’m Irish
If you have Irish heritage, you could also play off of the saying, “Kiss me, I’m Irish,” in your pregnancy announcement. Only this time, you’re double Irish. Announce your pregnancy to friends and family by asking for an Irish kiss for both you and your soon-to-be little one.
5. Designated Driver
Spoiler alert: if you’re expecting a baby, then drinking on St. Patrick’s Day is not an option. But, you can still have fun with it! Share a picture of you and your significant other out for St. Patrick’s Day, with you as the “designated driver.” You might not be drinking, but you have the best luck of all.
This St. Patrick’s Day, put a bit of an Irish spin on the common, “Oh baby!” pregnancy announcement. Since many Irish names have the O’ prefix, share an O’Baby picture. Don your festive St. Patrick’s Day garb, hold a picture of the ultrasound and caption the photo, “O’Baby!” You can even find an O’Baby shirt, like the one here.
7. Fourth Leaf Clover
If this is your second child, congratulations! Your family is luckier than ever. This is a great opportunity to embrace the Irish tradition of four leaf clovers. Get the gang dressed in their favorite green outfits and share a photo announcement with the caption, “We’re adding a fourth leaf to our clover!”
If you’re ready to share your pregnancy with the world, then St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to do so. Consider these ideas for a fun, unique and lucky baby announcement.
