DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A Virginia mother-to-be came up with a special way to let her husband know she’s pregnant.
Dana Griffin-Graves planted the baby’s ultrasound photos right next to a package of buns in the oven.
Then she secretly recorded her husband’s reaction, and the video is now on the verge of going viral.
It shows Arkell Graves peek into the oven then spin around and exclaim, “You’re pregnant! You’re pregnant!”
Then you hear his wife say the baby is “due February 16th. And it’s a boy.”
Graves breaks down sobbing. He later explains they were tears of joy.
“I’ve never been that excited before in my life and I mean not mainly for myself, for her,” adds Graves.
“His reaction was just priceless,” explains his wife, “I wasn’t expecting that at all. I knew that he would probably be emotional but I definitely was not expecting the reaction I received.”
The couple struggled for nearly 17 years to have a child. Griffin-Graves suffered four miscarriages and a still birth.
“It was definitely a struggle, a roller coaster with emotions going back and forth. I got to the point where I was you know what, I want to stop trying,” she said.
So she was shocked to find out last week that she’s nearly five months pregnant.
She recorded her husband’s reaction to share with family, but that video has garnered thousands of likes on social media.
