Honestly I wouldn't tell them anything. It is no one's business but yours. You don't have to justify it to them and you don't have to answer any questions. If they say 'I thought you said you weren't having any more babies?' you say 'things change' and leave it at that. Just repeat it every time until they give up asking. But keep it non confrontational.

I'm sorry your parents make you feel like this btw. flowers

As long as you're not dependent on them then they have no right to be annoyed.
Just state it as a fact and if they raise any grievance stop them and say your uterus is non of their concern and leave.

I agree with treaclesoda. It's nobody's business whether or not the baby was planned, life doesn't always pan out the way you planned it. It shouldn't make any difference to how loved your child will be, I'm sure both you and your parents will love the new baby just as much as your other 2 children.
