There was such a thing as a traditional family unit before. It consisted of a heterosexual couple and their children. Now things are changing. Every family has different views and beliefs. And these differences present each of us with a prime opportunity to practice love and acceptance.We have seen far too many cutesy, mom-and-dad pregnancy announcements on online as of late. These adorable same-sex pregnancy announcements think outside the box and challenge what you know about conventional parenting.As you take a moment to fall in love with these adorable pregnancy announcements, think about what's really going on here. To many people, same-sex unions are still controversial. But the fact is that these unborn babies have two parents who love them very much — enough to go to extra lengths to bring them into the world.
As unconventional as these pregnancy announcements may be, these new babies are lucky, and these new parents deserve to be celebrated.
Their aim was to show what great parents they will be and are hopeful any potential birth mothers will see the video and reach out to them. You can watch the video here.
Their story is captivating, not only because they are incredibly cute but also because they are raising awareness on how LGBT couples grow their families.
This photo went viral after Reddit user MeggoEggo1 (left) shared it on the image sharing site.
The couple has been together for a decade and legally married in California and New York well ahead of the U.S. Supreme Court’s June ruling that recognised same-sex unions nationwide.
Not only the mothers love each other, I am pretty sure they'd bring up the kid in a world where he/she can see everything as openly as they do.

Is it a pregnancy announcement... or a product placement? I guess, we'll know for sure 9 months later.
I love how symbolic this picture is aside from being humorous - that the parents are willing to keep their kid in an environment that understands that same-sex parents are not something to be despised.
The couple took the photos one year apart: First in January 2014 when Vanessa Iris was pregnant with their son, Jax, and next in January 2015 while Melanie was carrying their daughter Ero.
