When the time comes to take an important family photo, it’s not uncommon to see everyone photographed in their Sunday best. However, in a more down to earth (not to mention creative) turn of events, Candice Accola and her fam decided to break some big news while rocking homemade, personalized t-shirts.

The Vampire Diaries star Instagrammed an adorable photo today to cleverly announce that she and her husband Joe King are expecting. She captioned the photo, “Sometimes a Saturday is best spent painting t-shirts and taking an awesome family photo. Happy Monday, everybody! #ThatAintNoBurritoinMyBelly Thank you to our friend @softspiritstrong for coming over and snapping this sweet pic.”

Candice’s tank has “baby” spelled out in giant letters with words like “surprise, laughter, excited and grateful” surrounding it. Joe’s shirt spells out “superdad” while Candice’s stepdaughters, Ava and Elise rock DIYed shirts complete with emojis and various other illustrations. Not only is this idea full of color and fun for the entire fam (which always makes for a great photo in our opinion), but it’s a super sweet way to share how you feel about the news.

Candice and Joe (who is part of the band, The Fray) got engaged back in 2013 and married last year in New Orleans. This will be their first child together. A big congrats to the happy couple!
