Husband Learns Wife Is Pregnant After 17 Years Of Trying: Emotional Moment Caught In Heartwarming Video

A woman surprised her husband with news she was pregnant after 17 years of trying and caught his emotional reaction on camera.

Dana Griffin-Graves from Virginia said she and her husband Arkell Graves started trying for a baby after their wedding in 1998.

However after one stillbirth at six months and four miscarriages, they thought their dream of becoming parents was never going to happen.

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, Griffin-Graves said: "We had everything planned, but it just didn’t work out, so we kind of gave up."


So it came as a big shock recently when Griffin-Graves discovered she was five months pregnant.

She said she had an inkling after she was unable to lose weight.

As soon as her pregnancy was confirmed, she started to plan the best way to tell her husband.

Griffin-Graves decided to put buns in the oven, with her ultrasound picture laid next to him.

"There's some stuff in the oven too," she tells her husband in the video while he is prepping dinner in the kitchen.

It takes a few seconds before it dawns on the dad-to-be that they're actually having a baby.

His reaction is incredible.

Cue goosebumps.
