Valentine's Day pregnancy announcement: pregnant woman throwing small paper hearts up into the air

The holiday of love is coming up and you have some exciting news of your own to share. What better way to create even more joy than to combine the two? If you have your heart set on a Valentine’s Day pregnancy announcement, we’re here to help make it happen! 

Discover fun ideas and top tips for planning an announcement to share with loved ones whether it’s in person, online, or in an announcement card.

How to Make Your Valentine’s Day Pregnancy Announcement

Before deciding on the perfect Valentine’s Day pregnancy announcement idea, you first want to determine how you want to make the big reveal — in person, on social media, or with a traditional or digital card.

In Person Announcement

Sharing your happy news with loved ones in person is always sweet, but it can be hard to coordinate — especially if you’re planning a pregnancy announcement party with multiple family members and friends.

To announce the news to your nearest and dearest in person, think about whether you want a low-key announcement after dinner or a big surprise reveal party. Whichever option you choose, have your sonogram pics on hand and have fun sharing about your journey so far.

Social Media Surprise

These days, many parents-to-be choose to share the news on social media, and there’s good reason for that. It’s easier than ever to reach relatives and friends across the globe with no delay. Plus, announcing on social media isn’t an either/or situation — you can always phone your closest loved ones (or send them a digital card) with the news first!

Preparing a social media announcement can be a lot of fun. Stage a photoshoot, choose which image(s) to share, and write a fun note about your exciting news. A social media announcement allows you to share and invites others to reply with their congratulations too.

Sending a pregnancy announcement card is another wonderful option that goes beyond simply sending a plain text or email. When you choose a digital card, you get to share your news in a thoughtful, creative way — and it’s in a format that mixes traditional elements with modern convenience and ease.

Greenvelope’s collection of digital pregnancy announcement cards has something for every parent-to-be. Whether you want an adorable baby animal illustration, watercolor florals, or something more contemporary and bold, there’s a design to match your personal style.

Every design is editable too, so you can play around with the layout, fonts, and colors to create a bespoke announcement card. Add your own image to a photo card, update the envelope liner, and add your message. Many card templates also have backside supported space so you have plenty of room to write a longer note if you like.

3. Heart-Shaped Balloon Photo

Balloons are a celebration must-have, and heart balloons are a fun way to share a Valentine’s Day pregnancy announcement. For this idea, simply take a photo holding a handful of heart-shaped balloons.

4. Valentine’s Day-Themed Photoshoot

Get ready to send a cute announcement card by first capturing a few Valentine’s Day-themed pregnancy announcement photos. Dress up in red, pink, or white and choose a fun background to match, or wear a pregnancy announcement shirt or T-shirt

Who doesn’t love baked goods? Make them even sweeter by combining these delicious treats with your wonderful pregnancy reveal news. Bake (or buy) an assortment of personalized cookies with the baby’s due date or a short but sweet message like “We’re expecting” written in icing.

One of the best things about Valentine’s Day is the candy hearts, which makes them the perfect companion to your holiday-themed pregnancy announcement. Find a heart-shaped bowl or a glass jar and fill it with conversation hearts, then add your sonogram or a small handwritten sign to share the big news with your loved ones.

9. Themed Onesie Announcement

While parents-to-be can certainly get dressed up for the occasion, why not pick out a first outfit for your little Valentine? Share your news by holding up a baby onesie — either in Valentine’s Day colors or personalized with the bundle of joy’s due date.
