An amazing moment between a Virginia couple is going viral, showing a husband sobbing uncontrollably at the news that his wife — after 17 years of marriage — is nearly five months pregnant.
The woman, Dana Griffin-Graves, told Buzzfeed that she and her husband, Arkell, began trying to have a baby nearly two decades ago, after they got married.
She delivered one stillborn baby at six months and suffered another four miscarriages through the years.
About five years ago, the couple decided to let go of their dream of getting pregnant.
“It just didn’t work out, so we kind of gave up,” she said.
But recently, when she started walking with her friends but wasn’t losing weight like they were, she went to her doctor and found out she was pregnant.
“I was ecstatic,” she said. “We hadn’t planned anything, we weren’t trying.”
After finding out how far along she was, she began scheming with her family as to the best way to tell her husband.
Dana decided to cleverly surprise her husband by putting buns in their oven and placing the baby’s ultrasound picture next to the buns. She then filmed Arkell’s reaction to show their family later.
As soon as it dawned on him, a huge grin appeared on his face. Stunned, he repeatedly said, “You’re pregnant.”
When Dana told Arkell she’s nearly five months along already and that the baby is a boy, Arkell, unable to contain his emotion, broke down and began to sob uncontrollably.
In just a few days, the touching video has been seen more than a million times. Dana wrote on the video that they were shocked by the news, especially considering her age.
The couple is expecting a baby boy on February 16.
