21 Creative & Fun Riddles to Announce Your Pregnancy News

21 Best Pregnancy Announcement Riddles

The arrival of a new baby in the family is a great occasion for every couple. As the would-be parents, you want to tell your good news to your whole family, relatives, and friends. However, you feel a simple announcement or just telling them will diminish the joy of the big news. Your good news deserves a unique or creative way of announcing, which pleasantly surprises family and friends as it did to you.

There are various ways to announce the good news. Though, if you want it to be unique, telling it with a riddle will be creative and surprising for everybody as they finally solve the riddle. There are many ways to share your unique pregnancy announcement riddle. You can share it on social media like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to your friends and family, and let them answer there. You can also send the riddle to them in phone messages and wait for their response when they solve the riddle. Another way is to send them a postcard or cards with the riddle printed on it. However, the perfect way will be to host a party or get-together of all your family and friends and play a ‘solve a riddle’ game. There, you can ask the riddle and see their happy looks when they realize the big news. Though, remember to organise a party in the early months of pregnancy, when the baby bump is not evident. In the advanced months, the baby bump will be evident and your family will guess the good news, without any announcement or riddle. Whatever way you choose, announcing your pregnancy through a riddle will surely surprise your family and friends.
