Is This The Most Adorable Pregnancy Announcement Ever?

When it came time to break the news to my husband that we were expecting a baby, I have to admit that I was completely uninspired.

For two out of the four children, I was a bit shocked by the news, so there were more tears than jumping up and down and hugging in our kitchen (whoops). And as for the other two? I definitely went the old-school route of just breaking the news. I believe that I Sharpied up a “Big Sister” t-shirt for my oldest when I was pregnant with her little sister. For our third baby, I went about it in a classy manner: I texted my husband a picture of a positive pregnancy test from the bathroom stall at the grocery store. (Which, it should be noted, he didn't even get, so I had to show him the phone when I got home. Men!)

In other words, I was nothing like this adorable YouTube couple that went viral. One woman decided to surprise her husband with their baby news in the cutest way, and his reaction had me watching with the goofiest smile on my face and — OK, OK — a few tears in my eyes.

You have to watch the whole adorable video:

 

My favorite part? When the husband finally realizes that he's been on camera the whole time and acknowledges his wife's genius plan.

“God, you're brilliant,” he quips. 

Ironically enough, the couple, Jessica and Michael Devins, actually work together as graphic designers and photographers, so their job entails capturing other people's happy life moments, so it's only fitting that for their first big news together it would all be captured on film. Oh, and if you want to follow along on the couple's pregnancy journey, you can totally stalk Jessica on her Instagram account, not that I did that or anything. Ahem. (Spoiler alert: She's halfway through her pregnancy now!)
