After finding out you are expecting, the first person (after your hubby of course) you will want to share the news with is your sister! She is going to be SO thrilled to be an auntie. Whether she lives near or far, here are 29 adorable pregnancy announcements for your sister!
When we told our siblings we were pregnant, they were beyond excited. I’m so glad we took the time to come up with ideas that made this moment extra special.
How to Announce Pregnancy To Sister (Surprise…. You’re an Aunt!)
No matter how you plan on telling your sister she’s going to be an aunt, I know that she is going to be so happy for you (but more so for herself)… haha. Now she can’t start planning on how she can spoil your little one!

1. Take a picture and say “I’m going to be an Aunt”
If you are planning to have a family get together, this will be the perfect way to capture her reaction. First have her say “Cheese,” then take one more and this time say “I’m going to be an Aunt.” She will probably mindlessly copy you at first and then be shocked by your news!!
You just want to be sure that you have this set up on video and not camera!!
2. Text Message Across the Room
We’ve all texted our sister across the room. Maybe it’s to tell her something funny that your cousin did or simply because you want something to drink, either way she wouldn’t be expecting a text that says “You’re going to be an Auntie!!”
You could also send her a picture of the pregnancy test or an ultrasound picture! She surely won’t be expecting this.
3. Auntie Shirt
If you know your sister will want to show off that she’s an auntie, get her a cute new shirt to wear. You could wrap it up and give it to her as a gift or lay it on her bed if she’s coming to visit.
There are SO many different Auntie shirts on Etsy, here are a few of my favorites:
4. Wrap Up Your Pregnancy Test
Maybe it’s her birthday, Christmas, or you want to give her a gift “Just Because.” This is the perfect time to tell her you are pregnant….. and she’s going to be an Auntie!
If you are too impatient to wait for a personalized Auntie gift………. You could get a long bracelet jewelry box and put the pregnancy test in it or put a ton of tissue paper in a bag and bury it in the bottom!
5. Auntie Puzzle
If your sister likes puzzles, get her one personalized with her new name! Tell her she needs to put it together now because it has a hint of her gift.

6. BEST AUNT EVER Succulents
Maybe you need a long distance pregnancy announcement or your sister is obsessed with plants, either way this Best Aunt Ever planter set will be a cute reminder of when she found out she’s having a niece/nephew.
7. Auntie Wine
Does your sister enjoy wine? Get her favorite bottle and swap out the label! You could either wrap it up and give it to her as a gift or to be more discrete, set it on the counter and see if she notices.
Any wine lover is sure to be curious about this new bottle of wine they haven’t seen before!

8. Order Her Starbucks for Auntie
If your sister enjoys Starbucks, pick her up her favorite drink with her new name “Auntie” on it. She may not even realize what it says right away!!
This is a cute and subtle way to surprise her…. and it will probably be her favorite drink ever!!

If it happens to be around your sister’s birthday, this is the perfect time to surprise her! Get her a card that says Aunt instead of sister. When she reads it, she is sure to be SHOCKED with the news that you are expecting!
11. Birthday Cake for Auntie
Instead of writing her name, have the bakery write Happy Birthday Auntie! When you go to light the candles, she will probably notice that something isn’t quite right.
12. Sing “Happy Birthday to…. Auntie”
While we are on the theme of birthdays, instead of singing her name….. change it to Auntie! This will surely catch her off guard.

You don’t need to get her an ornament just for Christmas, but this will be a sweet keepsake that she will have to remember this special day. (Check Out Auntie Ornament on Etsy)

18. Casual Catch Up
I added this video because the second sister’s pregnancy announcement is so casual…. and that’s the idea. Whether you talk to your sister on the phone or are catching up in person, there are so many ways to subtly tell her you’re going to have a baby.
Ways to casually say we’re going to have a baby:
- Last week when I went to my ultrasound…
- Yesterday I grabbed a pregnancy test…
- Every morning I’ve been feeling nauseous…
- I’m so excited I don’t need to buy tampons anymore…
19. Call Her Auntie
This is another casual way to tell her! You could simply call her on the phone and say “Hey Auntie!” Or if you see her in person you could say “Awww Auntie.”
Calling her Auntie will definitely catch her off guard.

20. Welcome Home Auntie Sign
This is a great idea especially if you are picking your sister up from the airport! Go inside and wait for her with a sign that says “I can’t wait to meet you Auntie.”
21. Sister Scratch Off Card
This would be cute to put into a card! She will probably guess what’s coming just from the first phrase…. but she will be anxiously excited to scratch off the answer! (Check Out this Scratch Off on Amazon)
22. Aunt (Cross Out Name) Honey
Maybe your sister loves honey in her tea or you just think she’s super sweet, cross out Sue and replace it with her name! Tell her you bought this new brand of honey and wait until she notices. It might take a minute to click. (Check Out Aunt Sue’s Honey Here)
23. Get Her Auntie Annes
Are you needing to go to the mall? Ask your sister to tag along, then when you walk by Auntie Annes ask her if she needs a pretzel. Then you could say something like “I’m feeling a little nauseous, plus I’m not an aunt… you are!”
24. Order Pizza + Write Inside the Box
This one is perfect if you are planning on having your sister over for dinner! Order some pizza and write on the inside of the box lid “You’re Going to Be an Auntie!” She definitely won’t be expecting this one.
25. Address Her Package to Auntie
If your sister lives far away, you could address her package to Auntie! Then when she gets the mail, she may (or may not) notice the change in her name. She will probably immediately call you in confusion and excitement.

Get a children’s book all about being an auntie. Wrap it up and when you give it to her ask your sister to read the title out loud. She may figure it out before she can even say it!
