WHITEHOUSE, Texas, June 2 (UPI) -- A Texas couple said they announced the impending birth of their daughter by setting up a Facebook profile for the girl while she is still in the womb.

Matt and Ellie Greene of Whitehouse said their daughter, who they have already named Marriah and is due June 9, already has 268 Facebook friends, ABC News reported Thursday.

"We weren't sure how to tell all our friends the baby was coming," Matt Greene said. "We'd held off on telling people -- we wanted to make sure everything was fine with the pregnancy. We thought the quickest way to tell everyone would be to use Facebook."

The profile is filled with tongue-in-cheek information, including Marriah's education being listed as studying "labor and delivery at Tummy University" and her interests being primarily "swimming."
