Well, I'm not much help with what you should do, but I can tell you what not to do.
My Mum was to ill to contemplate making Turkey for X-mas dinner, so she made Cipaille (a French Canadian meat pie that contains six different meats, including rabbit and duck, which none of us liked) and then proceeded to tell us she was pregnant as we all sat down to eat! I don't think anyone ate much dinner that night!

I guess my best advice would be to tell them at a time when they are not actively involved in something else, so they don't have to change focus to take it in and discuss it. Maybe call a family meeting? Be prepared to answer any questions they may have, but also be prepared to give them lots of time to think it over first if they'd rather.
