Okay, without thinking too much about it, try to guess how Meghan Trainor and her husband of nearly two years, the Spy Kids boy (aka Daryl Sabara). Did they:
1. Instagram a black and white picture of Meghan and Daryl’s hands forming a heart on her stomach
2. Make a little sponsored content cash by Instagramming a picture of a ClearBlue pregnancy test
3. Honestly, I’m not going to think of a third, because there’s no way you’re going to guess correctly
Meghan and Daryl must not realize that it’s still the official month of spooky scary skeletons and pumpkin patches. Because their pregnancy announcement was delivered nestled among the branches of a fully-decorated Christmas tree. It’s still the first week of October! Even the merchandisers at Target are like, “You couldn’t wait until we put the fun-size Snickers on sale first?”
26-year-old Meghan and 28-year-old Daryl revealed their big baby news on both Instagram and on the TODAY show. Meghan has a Christmas album coming out soon, called A Very Trainor Christmas. Because Meghan is all about that X-Mas, she and Daryl decided to do some cross-branding by making their announcement just as festive and yuletide-y.
According to Meghan, their little Spy Baby is due early in 2021. Daryl posted the same picture, except his caption read: “I love you @meghan_trainor and I can’t wait to start a family with you.” Meghan and Daryl called into the fourth hour of the TODAY show, aka Hoda & Jenna, to wish Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager a Merry Christmas, and inform them of her current pregnancy situation. And wow, is the resolution on her web camera LOW. I hope one of the songs on her album is titled: “Santa Baby (Please Hook Me Up With Something In HD).”

After Hoda asked Meghan how she’s been doing, she replied:
“I’m very good as you can tell – it’s all Christmas here. But there’s other news that I’m dying to tell you and my heart’s pounding out of my chest. Hit it, Daryl.”
That’s when Daryl lowered a baby onesie with Hoda’s face on it. Nice, but confusing! The baby’s first moments on Earth shouldn’t be spent wondering if their mama is the daytime TV wine lady or the one that sang that “Lips Are Moving” song. And after a long nine months of internally praying it didn’t inherit its dad’s serial killer eyes, paired with the itchy polyester rash it will have after inevitably being swaddled in a Santa hat? That’s a lot of stress to put on a baby.
