Steps to follow:

Sometimes, catching your partner off guard and playing silly beggars can be great fun. Just imagine leaving a pacifier or dummy, nappies or baby clothes around the house for your partner to stumble upon. Your partner will be completely thrown off and ask you what they are for. The moment they see your face, you won't even have to tell them.


Another really fun option is to add baby materials to your usual shopping list, such as baby food. It will be hilarious to see your partner's face in the supermarket as they ask "Jars of baby food?" and you answer "Yes, jars of baby food".

Of course, this may be a little on the risky side - especially if you're going to be parents for the first time - as you don't quite know how they will take the news in front of so many watchful eyes.


We think the best way to tell your partner the joyous news is with a pregnancy test. You can subtly leave it in the bathroom or in the kitchen or you could even wrap it up and give it to your partner as a surprise present.

Whichever way you choose to show your partner the test, this is definitely the most obvious and popular approach. It's all about how you show it!


If your partner likes surprises, go all out and record a video telling your partner you're pregnant. You could start by making a photo montage of when the both of you were little, to give you an idea of how your child will look. Finish the video by showing the pregnancy test for a touching, tender moment.


Another option to tell your partner that you're pregnant is to wait for their birthday or anniversary, providing that it is soon, and give them a special little gift. This gift can be anything from a book on how to raise a baby, some tiny shoes, a baby t-shirt of your partner's favorite band, or even pictures from your first ultrasound.


Finally, another option is to start speaking in the plural, that is, by saying "we". At first, your partner might think you've gone a little crazy - or have delusions of royalty - but you can fix that by giving them a knowing look that lets them know that you're speaking in the plural because there are two of you - you and your baby.
