The internet is falling in love with Brian and Judy Bundy, proud grandparents who were overcome with joy when they first found out their daughter was pregnant.
Shannon Bundy Kluth and her husband, Sam Kluth, were over the moon to learn they were expecting their first child.
They decided to find a comical way to share the exciting news with Brian and Judy by playing a game that involved wearing noise-canceling headphones.
Brian and Judy were outfitted with a pair of electric-green headphones and seemed completely eager to play the game, which involved them trying to identify the phrase that their daughter was saying, all while keeping the headphones securely over their ears.
With the headphones blocking out the majority of the noise, Brian and Judy had a hard time reading Shannon’s lips and making out the correct phrase in the game — which, of course, was “We are going to be grandparents.”
The guesses that the unsuspecting Brian and Judy made were pretty funny, ranging from “We are going to grandmas” to “We’re going to bleed.”
A few moments into the game, Judy seemed to realize what her daughter was saying. She sat in confusion, letting the words sink in, while her husband continued guessing.
At last, Judy blurted out the phrase she could scarcely believe, yelling, “We’re going to be grandparents?!”
Shannon told them she was pregnant, leading to shock and sheer joy written on the faces of her parents. Brian began to weep, while Judy shot up out of her seat to confirm what she suspected.
“This was the most amazing experience,” Brian Bundy later commented on the video Shannon shared on Facebook. “Shannon and Sam got us good.. we thought we were playing this game where you wear these headphones that are playing really loud noises and you try and read the lips of the person talking.. we thought Shannon was reading off this random card.. little did we know!!”
In the Facebook comments section of the video posted by People, a proud, yet concerned Brian announced that his grandson had arrived prematurely on April 26.
“Our daughter gave birth to a son just last week,” he wrote.
“He was premature (born at 28 weeks) so every day is a new test for him, his mom and dad and my wife and me… but he has been so strong so far.”
“So thank you all for such wonderful comments and say a prayer if you want to for our new and first grandson Zachary.”
The proud grandparents later posted a photo of them sitting quietly in awe of baby Zack, a baby already completely loved and cherished.
Congratulations to this sweet family, and may baby Zack flourish into a healthy, thriving child.
