Vancouver Canucks captain Bo Horvat told everyone that he and his wife, Holly, are expecting a child.

Just not his dog.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, Horvat posted a unique photo for the announcement.

Holly Horvat is holding up a tiny No. 53 Canucks jersey (bonus points for it being a black, red and gold throwback) with "Horvat" on the back.

There is a sign in the photo that reads "Shhh. We haven't told him yet" as Horvat covers the eyes of the family's French Bulldog, Gus. So if you see Gus out and about, don't spoil the surprise.

Baby Horvat is expected in July.
