How to announce my sons girlfriends pregnancy?

by Sharon
(Riverview, Florida)

My son and his girlfriend have been together for about two years. They told me a few months ago that she was pregnant and she is due September 9th. As the time is getting closer I would like to give her a baby shower but I am not sure how to announce to my friends and members of the family about the pregnancy. A few people know but I have chosen to keep it limited until now.

Baby Announcement
by: Ms P Etiquette

Hello Sharon,

While I understand your reluctance to make a big announcement about the birth of the baby, I ask you to remember that this is your grandchild. Whether or not your son and his partner are married does not change that. Please give the shower with pride and feel joyful! If you do not convey embarrassment or secrecy yourself, those who wish you well will not be uncomfortable. Good manners insist we try to prevent the discomfort of others.
