Aaron Paul’s wife Lauren announced the sex of their baby in the sneakiest way

If you’re looking for a cute way to subtly announce the sex of your child, a cardboard cut-out of your significant other may very well help. Aaron Paul’s wife Lauren announced the sex of their child on Instagram, but included the news in the caption. While the photo itself wasn’t baby-related, it managed to feature Paul in a pretty interesting way.

Paul and his wife, Lauren Paul (née Parsekian) got married back in 2013. This September, they announced that they were expecting by sharing a photo of Parsekian, co-founder of Kind Campaign, with her hand delicately on her stomach. “Hey everyone. Look what I did,” Paul’s caption said. “Words can’t express how excited I am that this little one has entered our lives. Just thought it was time I would share this beautiful news with all of you.”

And we’re glad he did. While some celebrities like to keep it a surprise, the Breaking Bad actor’s wife figured it was about time to share the big news — the two will be expecting a girl.

It was announced in a flashback photo including Parsekian with a group of friends in Telluride, Colorado. Since Paul wasn’t present for this trip, she noted that she brought “Flat Aaron,” similar to the traveling “Flat Stanley” that children pass around at school, to help celebrate.

If you didn’t notice, she snuck in the sex of her child at the very end, after riffing on the way the group was smiling.

"Alsooooo baby girl was in my tum here and I had no idea," she said. "BUN!"

We wish nothing but the best for the pair, and can’t wait to hear more about their little girl!
