(Newser) – Mise-en-scène is super important in Facebook photos, you guys. It's a lesson one couple learned the hard way when attempting to announce their engagement via the social media platform, WGN reports. According to Yahoo, the couple posted a photo of themselves sitting on the couch, with wife-to-be Miranda Levy pointing to the ring on her finger. "He wasn't able to give me a real ring yet, but what matters is what's on the inside," she wrote below the photo. Her family and friends soon learned just how true that was.

For those who looked closely, the bottom corner of Levy's engagement photo included an open pregnancy test box. E! Online reports eagle-eyed Facebook friends soon started leaving comments like "Is that what I think it is in the corner?" and "Yo lmfao, gotta crop this guys…" and "Honey, you should call us. Your mother is confused." Having been caught, WGN reports Levy amended the photo to announce their pending baby as well as their pending nuptials: "Hey guys, we're having a baby too." (The wedding-to-be made news because of the innovative way he proposed.)
