Sharing pregnancy news with family is always a special time. Whether you choose to let your loved ones know that you’re expecting through a super-clever and social media-worthy announcement, or you keep it super-simple and old school, it’s always fun to see the reactions of those dear to us when they learn that a new member of the family is on the way.

When Michelle Balatero and her husband were ready to let their eight family members know about Michelle’s pregnancy, they opted for an adorable surprise. First, they gathered everyone on the couch for what they thought was a family photo shoot. Seems innocent enough, right? However, no one but Michelle and her husband knew that the camera was actually in video mode, secretly recording everything.

After pretending to take a few photos and encouraging everyone to smile, Michelle’s husband yells out, “On the count of three, everybody say, ‘Michelle’s pregnant!'” And their family’s reaction is pretty priceless. Check out the video below to see the hilarious and sweet moment when everyone realizes the good news.

It’s too cute. One of the couple’s daughters loudly exclaims, “Mommy’s pregnant?!” The family can barely contain their excitement, embracing each other and breaking into shrieks and smiles. What an absolutely precious way to give family the good news! We wish this growing family all the best!
