This Dad Completely Loses It When He Realizes His Wife Is Pregnant

It can take some couples longer than others to finally get pregnant, but when they finally succeed, the feeling is no less sweet. Dana Griffin-Graves and her husband had suffered through four miscarriages and one still birth before learning last week that she was five months pregnant. But rather than tell her husband up front that he was going to be a father, Dana decided to surprise him in a rather unconventional manner.

When her husband Arkell Graves came home from work, he looked in the oven to see what was for dinner and saw Dana's ultrasound photos nestled next to the buns in the oven. As soon as he realized what he was looking at, Arkell yelped out in surprise. "You're pregnant! You're pregnant!"

Dana calmly responds that she's already 19 weeks along. "Due February 16th, and it's a boy,' she says.

And that's when Arkell really loses it. He pulls his shirt over his head to hide his sobbing.

The couple had been trying for a baby for 17 years, so it's no surprise that Arkell was overcome with emotion when he found out that he'd finally be having a son. "His reaction was just priceless," Griffin-Graves told ABC News. "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."
