Vinessa Shaw is a recognizable actress for those who grew up watching the magical trio of witch sisters who put a spell on us in the 1993 cult classic, Hocus Pocus. Shaw played the role of Allison, the Salem native who helps Max Dennison (Omri Katz) and his little sister, Dani (Thora Birch), take down the villainous Sanderson sisters played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy.

Recently, Shaw announced her pregnancy via Instagram, paying homage to her witchy roots in the most magical way possible:

As adorable as this announcement is, this hocus pocus isn't how Shaw first announced her pregnancy. Three days before, Shaw posted a glowing photo of her and her graphic designer husband, Kristopher Gifford, announcing they were expecting their own little one early next year. Her husband cleverly swapped out the original Warner Bros. backdrop for a "cheeky" new logo with the slogan, "Great news! I am pregnant." The two are clearly over the moon about their first child.

After playing the role of Allison in the beloved Halloween classic, Shaw went on to play roles in films such as 3:10 to Yuma and The Hills Have Eyes. Most recently, Shaw claimed the role of Kate McPherson on the hit television series, Ray Donovan.

Shaw isn't the only Hocus Pocus star to pay tribute to the film. Just last Halloween, Bette Midler showed up on the red carpet in full Winifred Sanderson costume at the 'Hulaween Party' at The Waldorf Astoria in New York! The tale of these three wicked witches is one that will still be hauntingly enjoyable for years to come. Hopefully as Shaw's little one will grows up to love this sensational film as much as the rest of us!

Congratulations to Shaw and her husband on their own little bundle of magic!
