London: Previously, parents had to create a new profile to inform that they are expecting a child, but now with new changes, Facebook users can share the momentous news on their profile - complete with due date and chosen name.

The changes enable would-be parents to add an “Expected: child” field to their page to let others know their baby news, reports the Daily Mail.

To add the setting, parents must edit their profile settings and choose “Expected: Child” from a list of options.

An update is also published to the public news feed informing their followers of the change in circumstances.
