Social media has transformed the pregnancy announcement game. Before, you just showed your partner the pee stick destiny, or you held an intimate party for friends and family where you declined a glass of wine with a significant smile, or you appeared on “I Didn’t Know I was Pregnant!” Today, expecting couples have elaborate, professionally photographed announcements with a teeny pair of baby shoes, or a punny hashtag, and maybe this is just me but I feel like they’re all in barns? This week though, a clear winner emerged: a woman in Arizona announced her pregnancy on a Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino.
Although snaps of Starbucks’ new color and flavor-changing concoction have been taking over social media, none have gotten as much attention as this one. Julie Renee, the Starbucks barista who received the unusual order, tweeted a picture of the sparkly, swirly good news on Wednesday, and her post blew up. At the woman’s request, Renee wrote “You’re gonna be a dad!” on the purple, pink, and blue drink. She also drew some hearts around it for good measure. According to Renee, the woman had “just found out and was driving to work to tell her husband.” Here's how the cuteness turned out:
While there’s no word yet on how her husband responded, drink announcements seem like a great idea. What better way to celebrate good news than with a delicious beverage? Unfortunately, the unicorn frapp is only around until Sunday, April 23rd, so here are some other drink/announcement combos to consider.
