Aside from your baby shower and the miracle that is giving birth, one of the most exciting moments of becoming a parent is when you get to tell the whole world your wonderful news. There are a million and one ways to do it, but have you seen some of the more recent celebrity baby announcements? Although the traditional "parents' shoes next to baby shoes" is still a solid go-to, there have been some truly unique, adorable, and meaningful ways celebrities have let everyone know they're expecting.

Usually, when looking to A-listers for inspiration, you might wonder if you can pull it off as easily. Obviously the average parent-to-be doesn't have an unlimited budget, a team of stylists, and professional photographers, but that doesn't mean you can't totally steal some rad announcement ideas from Hollywood's elite.

Certain celebs have set the bar pretty darn high, like Mark Zuckerberg and Chrissy Teigen, raising awareness and being refreshingly honest with the deeper messages behind their pregnancy announcements. So whether you're currently pregnant, already have kids, or just want your daily dose of "squee" for the day, check out these celeb baby announcements that you're definitely going to want to use for yourself.
