Dana Griffin-Graves and her husband Arkell Graves have been trying to have a baby together for 17 years. Now, she’s finally pregnant -- and she broke the news in the most adorable way.
A cell phone video taken by Dana shows Arkell stumbling upon the surprise she left him in their oven. Yes, she put a bunch of literal buns there -- as well as her first sonogram pictures of their child.
“You’re pregnant!” Arkell says when he figures out the puzzle. And when Dana tells him that she’s 19 weeks along, he breaks down in tears.
The couple suffered four miscarriages and one stillborn throughout their relationship. “We had given up on the idea of having babies of our own, especially at our age,” Dana wrote in the video’s description. Looks like she didn’t have to.
“His reaction was just priceless,” Dana told the local news station. “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.”
“I’ve never been that excited before in my life,” Arkell said. “I mean, not mainly for myself -- for her.”
