Feb 11 2013 - 7:54am

If you've just found out that you're expecting, congrats! Chances are, the first person you want to share the news with is the lucky dad-to-be. We've got seven unique approaches to let him know that he's going to be a dad, whether it's a simple and straightforward method or an elaborate announcement!

Bun in the Oven

Take a literal approach to the phrase by having a bun baking in the oven when he comes home. It's a little cheesy, it's a little Stepford wife, but it'll make for a fun moment when he realizes the hidden meaning behind the baked goods.

You've Got Mail

Perfect for those with a slightly snarky sense of humor. Shoot this pregnancy card by someecards [1] to his email. Just make sure he's not in the midst of an important meeting!

Share the Experience

For some, it's a lot more fun to learn the news as a couple. Plan a time to take your pregnancy test when your husband or significant other can be there as well.

Theme Night

Lamb chops, baby peas, baby potatoes, baby carrots . . . do we sense a theme here? Fans of 1980s and '90s nostalgia [2] will recall that this was the move that Full House's Becky used to tell Jesse that she was expecting twins.

A Goofy Gift

Wrap up Uncommon Goods' Infant Troubleshooting Chart [3] ($22) — a very funny first gift for a dad-to-be.

We're . . . Prego!

"Honey, would you grab me a jar of . . . we're Prego!" Sure, it's a little silly, but it's as easy as a drop by the grocery store and is sure to elicit a laugh.

Table For Three

Imagine the look on his face when he sits down at the dinner table and sees this special spoon [4] ($15) at his place!
