Default Another Birth Announcement Question

OK -- If I win the battle with DH, Little Pink will be named Marian Grace and we will call her Molly.

So, since her formal name is Marian Grace, but we will use Molly for day to day, how do I word a baby announcement?

Do I do something like, "We welcome Marian Grace "Molly" Q" or try to find an announcement with room for a two lines of name....?

How would you handle a formal name and a nickname that will be used primarily?
