Family Announces Pregnancy with 'Lips Are Movin' Parody
A talented Nashville family found a unique way to let the world know they were expecting an addition to their brood.
The soon-to-be five-some made the pregnancy announcement with a parody of Meghan Trainor’s hit ‘Lips Are Movin.’
In an adorable video posted to YouTube, the Shocklee family replaced the chorus’ lyrics with ‘Our family’s growin.’
“We wanted something fun and happy. When we were looking for songs and Meghan Trainor’s ‘Lips Are Movin’ came up, Beckah immediately started singing ‘Our Family’s Growin’ and it stuck!” dad Jack Shocklee, 32, told INSIDE EDITION.
Deciding to make a musical announcement was easy for the family, as Jack Shocklee works as a music producer and his wife, Beckah, 37, is a recording artist. The couple and their daughters, Grace, 8, and Joy, 6, rehearsed on the way to breakfast the morning the video was recorded, he said.
“We were originally going to just post a clever picture, but after we told a few family and friends the news they responded asking how we were going to announce it saying, ‘I know whatever you’re going to do, it will be epic.’
“So we felt pressure to do something more elaborate,” Jack Shocklee said.
The video quickly went viral, as viewers expressed how impressed they were with the song.
“This was a very unique idea and the result was so cute! Congratulations on your growing family, may baby #3 be very healthy!” one commenter wrote.
“This is one of the best pregnancy announcement ever!” another person posted.
The newest addition to the Shocklee family is due in May. Click here to watch the full announcement.
