With so many brilliant ways to share your pregnancy news with your partner, it almost seems a shame to just tell him that you’re pregnant. So, from spelling it out during a game of Scrabble to setting the table for three, get inspired with these reveal ideas.

Let a T-shirt say it for you
There are plenty of pregnancy reveal tops out there that you can bust out at the opportune moment. Or, if you can’t find the perfect one, grab a plain white tee and some fabric pens and make your own. [CafePress]
Take a photo with a twist
Take a pic of your partner but instead of saying, ‘Say cheese!’, exclaim, ‘Say [insert your name]’s pregnant!’ and take the photo as he registers what your mean. Priceless. [Corbis]
Write it on your belly
Save yourself the hassle of finding a great slogan T-shirt and write your message on your tiny bump in eyeliner or lipstick. [Alamy]
Buy a baby book
Give your partner with baby book for dads and watch his surprise as he unwraps it and realises what it is… [Amazon]
Spell it out in scrabble
If your partner’s a fan of word games, set up the scrabble board to spell out your news and then challenge your partner to a game. When he opens the box he’ll see the message. [Corbis]
Customise love hearts

Dinner for three
Preferably using baby dishes and cutlery in the third place, just to make it clear… (you're not planning a threesome). [Corbis]
Write it in icing
If you see yourself as a bit of a baking pro, whip up a batch of cupcakes and use each one to spell out your baby news. [Corbis]
