NO ONE is Happier About a Pregnancy Announcement Than This Lady
It's pretty safe to assume this woman is excited her daughter is pregnant... I think.
Want to see the most emotional, crazy, over-the-top, touching, jaw-dropping, embarrassing, adorable reaction to a pregnancy announcement ever? Well then you're in luck. A new video posted to You Tube, which shows a woman learning her daughter is going to have a baby, delivers just that.
The "scene" opens in a family's kitchen, where a man and woman are standing with their daughter. It's not quite clear how they get the gist of what she's trying to tell them until the grandma-to-be demands,"Are you pregnant?"
And before her daughter can even answer her, she starts screaming and running around the room like she's just been informed she won a billion dollars. Twice.
"You're pregnant? You're pregnant?" she continues. "Oh my God. Oh my God."
Then her excitement turns to... sadness? The overwhelmed soon-to-be grandma drops the floor and starts sobbing. Is she okay? Someone get this woman a Xanax!
Her daughter, you know, the one whom this entire pregnancy thing is about, finally goes over to her mom and says, "Get up." The two embrace, and the video ends. And I'm exhausted.
Meanwhile, when I told my mom I was pregnant, she didn't talk for 24-hours. That's how shocked she was. It was as if she'd slipped into a coma at the mere thought of becoming a grandmother.
I think a perfect reaction to a pregnancy reveal would be somewhere in between this woman's emotional meltdown, and my mother's semi-fugue state. Of course, this grandma's hysterics make for a much better video.
How did your parents react to the news you were pregnant?
