Dana and Arkell Graves just want what millions of other people have all over the world: a child. They started trying nearly 17 years ago, but after suffering a horrible stillborn birth when she was 6 months along, followed by 4 miscarriages, the couple gave up. It’s been 5  years since they actively “tried” to start a family, so imagine Dana’s surprise when she learned that the reason she couldn’t lose weight was because she was pregnant. And not just newly pregnant, but almost FIVE months pregnant! Dana knew she had to tell her husband in a special way, so she recorded this video to catch his amazed reaction.

It’s not often we see men weep so openly, but you can tell that Arkell couldn’t believe this news was finally happening to him. We wish this couple the best of luck, and we can’t wait to see the followup video next February!
