There are some phrases that can be both the greatest or worst thing you’ve ever heard, and “I’m pregnant” is definitely one of them. So with a gamble like that, it’s best to start off on a high note.

These are some great ways that men have turned into fathers.

 

 


“With all three of my pregnancies, my husband knew before I even opened my mouth. Each time, he walked in from work, stopped dead when he saw my face, and said, ‘No freaking way!’ Apparently, I have ‘resting baby face.’”

“I told him the same day Drake’s ‘In My Feelings’ video came out. So we played the video and I danced around singing, ‘Baby, do you love me? You’re gonna be a daddy!’”

(This is from a different Drake video, but I feel like it applies)

 

“I’d been vomiting, aching, and dehydrated for a few weeks and finally went to the hospital, where I found out I was pregnant. So I woke him up when I got home and said, ‘Guess what? IT’S NOT THE FLU.’

-Rachel Lee

 

 


“I was terrified that my boyfriend would leave me when I told him I was pregnant because we were in college and we weren’t that serious. But the second he saw my face, he knew something was wrong and just held me while I cried until I was ready to tell him. And when I finally said the words, ‘I’m pregnant’, he didn’t even falter. His hug just grew tighter, and then he said, ‘Okay. We’re going to do this. Together.’”

“We had been having trouble conceiving and were preparing for another round of fertility treatments, when I took a pregnancy test as a failsafe. When I saw that the results were positive, I was so excited that I ran out of the bathroom and thrust the test — still dripping with pee — into my husband’s hand yelling, ‘WHAT DOES THIS SAY?!’ And then I recommended a copious hand-washing, of course.”

“She told me with chocolate cupcakes, and I HATE chocolate cupcakes. She kept urging me to eat one and I kept refusing — until finally, she screamed angrily, ‘EAT THE GODDAMNED CUPCAKE!’ It wasn’t until I finally took a bite that I realized there was blue frosting inside…and that we were having a baby.”

“I put the positive pregnancy test in a FedEx box and left the ‘package’ at our front door. So when my husband came home, he brought the package inside, opened it, and voila´!”

“I put a pink paint sample and a blue paint sample on our table, and when my husband came home, I casually said, ‘There are some paint samples on the table. Can you look at them and tell me which one you like best?’ He replied, ‘For what?’ And I said, ‘The nursery, silly!’”

“I was in the bathroom frantically texting my best friend while waiting for the results, and after I took a picture of those two positive lines, I accidentally sent it to my husband instead of my bestie. I’ll never forget the look on his face when I walked out of the bathroom.”

“My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella’s Castle at Walt Disney World, and that place has always been magical for us. So of course I took him there to surprise him with my two positive pregnancy tests and a Disney Darth Vader Trading Pin that said, ‘Number One Dad in the Galaxy!’”

“I faked a letter from the IRS promising him a tax break in nine months. There were all kinds of hints in the letter — from the return address saying, ‘Reproductive Service’ to my signature at the bottom above the title ‘Operations Manager, Automated Child System.’ There was even a picture of two positive pregnancy tests. But he still didn’t get it, so I made him read it again.”

“I made a mug that had baby feet stamped inside, so that he would see them as soon as he finished his coffee.”
