Our family is expanding: TODAY viewers share adorable pet-assisted announcements

Over Labor Day weekend, Carrie Underwood announced her pregnancy with a little help from her furry friends, Ace and Penny.



Inspired by the country singer's pup-tastic baby bump news, we asked TODAY.com readers to share photos of their animal-assisted announcements. Check out some of our favorites below and be prepared to "awww."

Thanks to all the TODAY Parents readers who shared photos — they are all so adorable we could hardly stand it. If you need a serious dose of cuteness, see the rest of the submissions on our TODAY Parents Facebook page.
