Facebook adds 'expecting a baby' to life events

You can now let all your friends and family know that you're becoming a parent by adding a life event to your Timeline.

Facebook

In addition to buying a house, getting engaged, or adopting a new pet, you can now add "expecting a baby" to your Facebook Timeline. This, plus a creepy ultrasound picture, can let all your friends know that you're adding to your family.

If you want to share that you're expecting a baby:

  • Go to your Timeline
  • From the sharing tool, click Life Event
  • Click Family & Relationships
  • Select Expecting a Baby...
  • Add the details you want to share and click Save

And to share that you had a baby:

  • Go to your Timeline
  • From the sharing tool, click Life Event
  • Click Family & Relationships
  • Select New Child...
  • Add the details you want to share and click Save

That's all it takes.

Once you have your little one in your arms, most people love to see the pictures of your newborn, but poopy diaper explosions and spit-up pics are generally TMI. Remember this, sleep-deprived parents!
