Surprise twins

I had a method for announcing my pregnancy after I found out I was having twins. First, I'd tell friends I was pregnant, and let that sink in. Then, I'd hit them with the second bit of news—that it was two! It was so fun to bask in all the fun screams and squeals, prologed by that one-two punch approach to the surprise twin pregnancy reveal.

Well, one couple recently took that game quite a bit further. Although they knew they were having twins, they didn't tell anyone—until the babies actually came! (Can you imagine the discipline involved with keeping such a massive and emotional secret?)

So when folks came to visit them in the hospital, or called in for a FaceTime introduction, they were expecting only to be surprised by the gender of the new baby. But it turned out they were surprised—shocked, actually—to see not one but two tiny pink bundles in the hospital room.

The couple, already parents to an older son, documented those loved ones' reactions, and compiled them into one amazing six-minute surprise highlight reel you won't want to miss. It ends with a sweet montage of still family photos (including of the baby girls in their "Best Kept Secret" onesies!) set to a tear-jerking score. Check it out here:
