Don't tell the Sanderson sisters! Vinessa Shaw, known and loved by many as Allison in the 1993 Disney film Hocus Pocus, has shared that she's expecting her first child, and her pregnancy announcement is honestly too cute for words.
In a photo posted to Instagram, Shaw is all smiles with her graphic designer husband Kristopher Gifford, who designed the adorable backdrop that reads, "Great news! I am pregnant." Vinessa captioned the heartwarming photo, "Great News! We are proud and excited to share that we are expecting a little one early next year!...My hubby is a graphic designer, so I hope you appreciate his cheekiness."
And what a talented graphic designer he is—Gifford modified photos that were taken at the end of last month at the Warner Bros. Emerging Film Directors Workshop. How sweet!
It was such an honor to be a part of Warner Bros. inaugural "Emerging Film Directors Workshop". Out of 6,000 applicants, 5 directors (4 female, 1 male) were selected to be a part of their program. The program was set up to discover diverse storytellers who may otherwise not have their voices heard. Last night's screening was proof that there is talent out there! Thank you @iamaostrander for allowing me to be a part of your studio film debut! #sensum #girlcrush @wbpictures #emergingfilmdirectorsworkshop
Of course, being the star of such an iconic Halloween film, the star wasn't about to announce her pregnancy without adding a little hocus pocus to the mix. She took to Instagram again with a fun graphic of the Sanderson sisters that must have brought up a lot of nostalgia—positive pregnancy test and all! Vinessa wrote, "Maybe I should have used this for my pregnancy announcement?? #anythinggoes"
And what's a Hocus Pocus pregnancy announcement without a classic movie reference? "Winnie, I smell... a child," the graphic reads, along with the infamous line, "It's just a bunch of Hocus Pocus."
Is anyone else dying for October to come so they have an excuse to watch Hocus Pocus on a loop?
