An American mom was getting ready for a night out with her husband, when he came downstairs clutching something which would change their lives forever. He told her that he had a surprise for her, but nothing could have prepared her for what was coming next.
Back in September 2016, a woman named Kiki got the shock of her life — all thanks to her husband’s cunning opportunism. The couple, from Brevard County, Florida, had intended to go out for sushi that night, but those plans soon had to be changed.
They had recently been trying to get Kiki pregnant, and give their son Isaac a sibling. The previous month, Kiki had taken two pregnancy tests, but there was a problem with both of them. The kits were inconclusive, and so they didn’t get a definitive answer.
Then, on September 4, Kiki’s husband, whose name is never revealed, stumbled upon a fantastic opportunity. He went to the bathroom after his wife, and found something that gave him a genius idea. It was at this point that he switched his camera on and started filming.
Turning the camera onto himself, the man begins to explain what it is that he is planning on doing. He talks about how he and Kiki have been trying for a baby, before revealing that his wife is a week late; implying that she may well be expecting a baby at last.
“I personally think she’s pregnant,” he says about his wife, who, at that moment, was sitting downstairs all dressed up and waiting to go out for a sushi dinner. Next, the husband reveals precisely why he is standing in the bathroom filming himself.
He explains that Kiki just left the bathroom, having failed to flush the toilet. “She’s always forgetting to flush because she’s always running all over the place with Isaac,” he says. But this only gave her husband an opportunity to do some detective work.
Next, he tells the camera that he is about to grab a pregnancy test from his wife’s “stash” of them, and conduct a test on the sample of urine that she left in the toilet bowl. All the while, Kiki was downstairs with absolutely no idea of what her husband was up to.
He seems confident that the result will be positive, giving the camera a big thumbs up and a smile when he says, “She probably is [pregnant], I think she is.” Then, it was time to retrieve a small sample of urine from the toilet bowl.
The next shot in the video shows a few drops of urine being placed onto the pregnancy test, while a heartbeat sound-effect plays over the top of the footage. But it cuts away from the test before we can see whether there are two lines or just one.
Then the video shows Kiki playing with her son, as her husband tells her that he has a surprise for her. He opens the conversation by saying that they can no longer go out for dinner that night. Kiki doesn’t seem impressed and replies saying, “Why not? I’m already dressed.”
“You actually can’t eat sushi for the next nine months,” the husband says. A baffled-looking Kiki dismisses his comment by saying, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Then, she suddenly gets suspicious about why her husband is filming her.
“This is why right here,” her husband says, showing Kiki the pregnancy test with two lines. He hands the test to his wife, who asks where it came from, before she realizes that it shows a positive result. “Why is it positive?” she shrieks.
“You forgot to flush earlier, and so I kind of snuck in there afterwards and took a sample, and voila, bam!” he explains to his confused wife, who clearly can’t believe just what she is being told. “The results are in — you are pregnant!” he says.
Kiki shakes her head exclaiming, “No, I don’t get it!” before checking if her husband is tricking her. He confirms that he is being “dead serious,” and tells his wife once again that she is pregnant; a wonderful role-reversal of the standard pregnancy reveal.
Kiki is totally overwhelmed, and makes her husband explain exactly how he carried out the pregnancy test without her knowledge. She cries “I don’t believe you!” a few times, before the reality of the situation begins to sink in properly.
“I’m pregnant?” she screams, before jumping up and down, and clapping her hands with excitement. Next, she picks up her son and explains to him excitedly that he is going to become a big brother soon, as she shows him the positive pregnancy test.
At the end of the video, Kiki still seems to be totally overwhelmed by the news. She leans in for a kiss with her crafty husband, amid mutterings of “Oh my God.” After all, it’s a lot of information to take in, especially because, rather unusually, she wasn’t the first to know.
The father-to-be wrote on website Newsflare that he had wanted to be the one to tell his wife the fantastic news. “I honestly didn’t really know what I was doing, or if it would be positive, but I figured it would be worth a try,” he said.
But the plan worked out, and he was able to pull off a unique pregnancy reveal which worked in reverse to all others. “I was able to surprise her instead of her surprising me,” he wrote, which certainly made it all the more heartwarming to watch.
