Creative baby announcements are the norm these days, so when a couple makes one that’s truly over the top, it’s worth some attention.
And Florida couple Emily and Jason Teck have done it, with the help of a very special guest — rapper Vanilla Ice, aka Rob Van Winkle.
The Tecks aren’t the first to use Ice's 1990 hit song “Ice, Ice, Baby” as a pun in their announcement theme.
There are all kinds of versions of couples posing with bags of ice while pointing to blossoming bellies or sonograms of their new additions.
But the Tecks, who live in Wellington, Florida, went one step further and contacted Ice's manager to see if he'd be game. And since he's practically a neighbor, living in a nearby community, the logistics worked. The Tecks got the money shot at a lighting store, where Ice was promoting his Vanilla Ice Lighting line.
Emily Teck, who is a musician, met Jason, a Web developer, through an online dating site, and the couple has been married for three years.
"My husband likes to rap to me ... it's just a silly, funny thing between us," says Emily, who admits she was obsessed with Ice's hit song when she was a kid.
