After an expecting couple recently discovered they are having their FIFTH son, they decided to share the news in an untraditional (and super funny!) way. The obviously good-natured parents took the hilarious photo above, in which all the boys of the family--including the dad--happily strike superhero poses around the mom as she feigns exasperation and puts her head in her hands.  

Haha, how AWESOME is that?!

"We're gonna have another boy!!!!" reads the caption beneath the picture, which was posted on Reddit last week and quickly went viral, garnering thousands of comments.

The dad told the Daily Mail that his wife had been yearning for "some female companionship" and that the two were "almost positive" they were going to have a girl. Woops ... guess that didn't go as planned! Needless to say, when they found out that they were indeed expecting another son, he says they just couldn't resist the opportunity to make some good, lighthearted fun out of it all.  

While the announcement is obviously meant as a joke (though I'm sure that mom really DOES feel that way some days), it struck a chord with many Reddit users, who shared their own family's stories of trying for a certain sex.

Okay, how cool are these parents?! I just love how good-humored they are about the whole thing! And they're not the only ones to get creative and come up with some amazing (and hysterical) ways of sharing the news.  

Below, check out 12 of the most awesome ways to tell everyone a little one is on the way!
