Way to make Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff proud!

Jesse and Melissa Meeks didn't announce their pregnancy news with the basic "We're having a baby" Facebook post. Instead, this Oregon couple rapped their exciting news—to the tune of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song!

Earlier this month, the Meeks posted their clever, hip-hop announcement to YouTube so that friends and family outside the West Philadelphia Happy Valley area could see it. It started to get pickup, and before the future mom and dad knew it, they'd gone viral!

"It was completely unexpected. Like, that was the last thing we thought would happen, that it would blow up to what it had, or what it has," Melissa told Fox 12.

So how did the couple, who shot the video above in just five takes on a cell phone camera, decide on the Fresh Prince theme? "I just started playing around with some words and the Fresh Prince tune kept coming to mind," said Melissa, "and then Jesse said he was doing the same thing and the same tune was coming to his mind."

As of today, Mama and Papa Meeks' video has over 1.6 million hits on YouTube. That's not all though—the expectant couple said they might come out with a sequel when they learn their baby-to-be's gender!

Perhaps that could be to the tune of..."Gettin' Jiggy Wit It"? "Miami"? "Wild Wild West"? It's still the Willennium, y'all.
