This Baby Announcement Is Hilariously Gangsta

This couple's fun baby announcement is inspired by, yes, a Toyota commercial

Everyone knows there's nothing more gangsta than a family rocking a sweet minivan.

Okay, so maybe the Toyota "Swagger Wagon" commercial, featuring a mom and dad rapping about how hard they roll through the cul-de-sacs, doesn't rank so high when it comes to street cred, but with more than 12.2 million YouTube views, we’d venture to say even Eminem is jealous.



We're just happy the ad inspired Jalene and Lincoln Taylor to create the illest baby announcement we've seen all year.

The couple, from North Salt Lake, Utah, tells TODAY they dealt with infertility issues before Jalene, 26, found out she was expecting a baby due in May.



“Infertility is a very difficult, emotional roller coaster,” the mom-to-be tells the news show. “One of the things that helped keep our spirits up was thinking of fun ideas on how to announce our pregnancy when it finally happened.”

Taking a page from the “Swagger Wagon” video, TODAY reports, the pair came up with the lyrics and had a videographer pal help with the video.

“Whether it’s a sweet baby girl or a cute baby boy, got a bun in the oven and we’re overjoyed,” Lincoln raps, making it rain diapers, with Jalene soon adding, “Just a second…I have to pee again.”

Actually, growing a baby in nine months? It doesn’t get much more gangster than that.
