A man is overcome with emotion when his wife reveals that he's going to be a dad - once he finally realises why she's put in a bread bun in their oven.

After setting up her phone camera to record the interaction in the couple's kitchen, Jennifer Johnson asks her husband Kevin to check the oven. "I think I see something in there," she explains.

But even when Kevin sees the bread roll placed significantly on the oven rack, he fails to get the symbolism. His wife offers some gentle encouragement: "What is it?"

"It's a bun, what do you think it is?" a slightly-exasperated Kevin replies. It isn't until Jennifer patiently prompts: "In the oven?" that her husband catches on.

"Are you...? Shut up! How do you know?" he blurts out. Not exactly what every pregnant woman wants to hear! But if his reaction is not exactly what you'd call romantic, it's certainly sincere.

Kevin's chief concern seems to be how he'll cope with keeping the news to himself for the next couple of weeks. "Dude, you know how big my mouth is!" he protests, before eventually succumbing to emotion and telling Jennifer to switch the camera off so he can blub in peace.

She has more bad news, too, putting a final end to their ongoing disagreement over baby names. "You know we can't call it Sebastian."

We now know that she got her way - their little boy, named Brady James, was born in April.
