But have you ever seen one in which someone else scoops mama on her own big news? It's hard to imagine a scenario in which that would even be possible, but... there's a first for everything!
So Sam got the idea to do a little sleuthing on his own: Secretly taking his wife's urine sample straight from the toilet (she doesn't flush at night in an effort to avoid waking their baby), he placed a few drops on a home pregnancy test and... bingo! Two lines.
Filming the whole time for their video blog, Sam waltzes into the kitchen where his wife is preparing breakfast for their two young children.
