Husband Has Sweetest Reaction to Wife's Pregnancy Surprise After 5 Years of Marriage

Share

There’s a lot of joy to be found in life’s simplest moments. A first kiss, a graduation, a new member welcomed into the family.

Sometimes we search for the next big or epic thing when really it’s the quiet, intimate times that matter most. A look, a smile, a hug.

These are the memories we carry with us throughout the years. The ones that stay in our minds long after they’ve ended.

I still remember the look on my husband’s face when I walked toward him down the aisle. The smile spread across his lips when I told him we were expecting our first child.

How I wish I’d had a camera out to freeze the memory of his reaction in time. I may not have thought ahead on that one, but Erika Irwin of Tyler, Texas sure did.

The time had come for Erika and her husband Luke’s 5-year wedding anniversary. The couple had arranged a photo shoot with photographer Callynth Finney.

Luke thought he was simply going for a day snuggled up next to his wife. Little did he know he was in for so much more.

“She did not know she was pregnant when they scheduled the shoot, but she took a pregnancy test right before the shoot,” Finney shared. “I suggested she include the announcement in the shoot.”

Erika took the suggestion and ran with it. Watch as a mixture of still shots and video roll together seamlessly to the musical stylings of Rachel Kurtz — the sight will warm and melt your heart at once.

When Erika unrolls the blanket and reveals the onesie, it looks as if Luke can’t believe his eyes. His delayed reaction is priceless.

“It didn’t process,” Luke recalled in an interview, “and then it finally clicks and I’m like … ‘she’s pregnant.'”

“He surprised me during our engagement, so I had to get him back one day,” Erika commented. And get him back, she did.
