Baby on the Way for Ravens’ Torrey Smith

10/01/2013 at 01:00 PM ET

A picture is worth a thousand words — or in Torrey Smith‘s case, just two!

The Baltimore Ravens wide receiver posted a photo to his Instagram account on Monday of he and his wife Chanel showing off their spaghetti dinner — and a special announcement.

Wedged in between the dining duo is a bottle of sauce that — with the help of an added sign — reveals, “We’re Prego.”

“Can’t believe she got me to take this pic … but it’s a blessing so I’m with it,” Smith, 24, writes.

Smith and his wife, a schoolteacher, were married in July.

I went to college with Torrey and am a huge fan. He is a wonderful example of a man, husband and nfl player. You will never see Torrey in those embarrassing situations we are so accustomed to seeing from sports stars.

Congrats to Torrey and Chanel. I have no doubt they will be wonderful parents.

Pat on

They are the cutest! Love that she is a school teacher and not some model/actress wannabe.

Love how they announced this. A friend and his wife (who have a little boy) had a unique way of announcing they were expecting another. He held their son on his shoulders and in between him and his wife held a sign with the + symbol. She then held a sign on the other side that said =4. Cute way of announcing

Congrats to a great couple and great animal rights activists.

Lori on

Their faces are cute, but “prego” refers to pregnancy p-o-r-n. I really wish people would stop using it in reference to being pregnant.

Crystal on

I now have an INTENSE craving for spaghetti!!! Lol! Congratulations to the parents-to-be! Praying for a healthy pregnancy, delivery and baby!!! 🙂

dirtbikemommie on

Very cute. I cant understand why some folks selected the “angry” icon. Lighten up people! Lolol

Marky on

Guest, why do you care what color his wife is? What an odd comment… Congratulations to the happy couple; what a cute announcement!

Lori, who’s even heard of “pregnancy porn”? I’ve heard the term “prego” over and over, but never heard anyone refer to “pregnancy porn”….bizarre.

The prego jar is so over done! I have seen several people on fb do the same jar thing.

Gal Capone on

Who cares if it’s not original or not?? Do people feel superior saying “I’ve seen this before.”? So what.

wow…they are so creative…they can search pinterest like everyone else! It’s cute, but it’s not like they came up with it on their own.—–Wow….you are so original….it’s not like you came up with THIS on your own. It’s been said before.

It’s not that original.. Our niece and her husband announced their latest pregnancy the same way 3 months ago. —So….it was hardly original when your niece did it then, either.

Anyway, rant over. I think it’s a cute announcement & I’ve never seen it before.

Gal Capone on

Disregard the first “not”. They don’t have an edit function on this thing?? Lol.

Melanne on

I’ve seen at least 4-5 other people do this on Facebook over the past year.

Lyla on
