If you're gearing up for your second child, this funny announcement that incorporates your soon-to-be older sibling is a great choice. If you don't have a chalkboard, this can also be done with a piece of paper and markers.

We got a BIG surprise a couple months ago that we are expecting our FIFTH sweet baby! 😀 We thought our family was complete and felt peace with that decision. Well, the big man upstairs had another plan... and after the initial shock of our .1% chance little meant-to-be baby news wore off, the excitement set in. We get to have another wonderful little human in our lives and part of our family, woohoo!! Grateful for the knowledge that HIS plan is always the best plan. 💗💙 Alright, so now the big question... Is it a boy or girl? There is only one in there, I double checked 😉 #pregnancyannouncement #pregnancyannouncementideas #fifthpregnancy #mamatofive Photo taken by: @the_brandographer

A post shared by This Vivacious Life (@chandiceprobst) on

If you or someone you know has some good Photoshop skills, making a movie poster like this one is a great idea. Some other possible titles that play on existing movies include "Boy Story," "Along Came Baby," and, of course, "Meet the Parents."

We're sure every soon-to-be parent wished they could communicate with their baby, and now you can...well, sort of. All you need is two tin cans and a string to pull off this announcement idea.

This is how we told everyone we were having a baby - a year ago today! It felt so surreal, that I was actually pregnant - but telling people was so exciting 😄 I can’t believe that little scan photo is our Tabitha! I still find it all so fascinating - I grew a little life! 😍 #ayearagotoday #pregnancyannouncement #scanphoto #12weekscan #throwbackthursday

Video game lovers, this one's for you. You can use any two video game console controllers and a sonogram to pull of this creative announcement.

A post shared by ⓐⓜⓑⓔⓡ (@nolenurse) on

Whether you're a wine lover or a casual enjoyer, this announcement is undeniably funny. All you need is a bottle, a couple glasses, and some paper and a pen. The sonogram definitely adds an extra special touch, but it could be done without one.

If you're a soon-to-be parent, chances are you're going to be hearing a whole lot of the "Baby Shark" song in a year or two, so why not incorporate it into your announcement? You can show off your arts and crafts skills and build your own poster like this couple did.
