If you're going to announce a surprise gift to the world you might as well enlist the best gift giver to help.

That's what happened when Illinois native, Mackenna Hill turned a routine Santa Claus visit into an adorably cute baby announcement.

Hill announced the third baby with the help of stunned Santa and the rest of her family just a few days ago.

Her husband, Ryan, may have been the star of the announcement perfecting his "what have I just done" face palm.

The picture turned out quite well. Using Santa to deliver news could become a thing in 2016 and for future holidays.

Next time you're at the mall and see Santa take a picture with him. Who knows, you could use the big man to help share some good news.
