This couple went all out by creating a 'Survivor' quest to announce baby #4 to their brood.
We are pretty big "Survivor" fans over here in my house.
By which I mean all four of us have seen every single episode of every single season. My husband and I also won a Halloween costume contest by dressing up as fan faves Boston Rob and Amber, and we may or may not have once staged a seriously epicBecker Island competition in our backyard in honor of our daughter's 8th birthday that involved pitching actual tents.
Fine, they were plastic kids tents. But still.
Anyway, when I heard there was a pregnancy announcement based on the show making the rounds over on YouTube, I couldn't wait to check it out and cast my vote.
The video was conceived (didn't even do that on purpose!) by popular authors and vloggers Scott and Camber Simson, and it kicks off with Scott—in a Probst-style baseball cap and button-down, natch—telling his two daughters that they are about to compete in the qualifying round of a kid's version of the show.
"In true Scott and Camber fashion we had to do something epic for a pregnancy announcement," he explained in the caption. "We told the girls that we were going to do a Survivor challenge just for a fun vlog. They had no idea that their reward at the end was going to be that mom is having another baby."
I see a #Blindside coming!
Scott then leads the girls through a pretty intense challenge—after the requisite "Survivors, ready!"—that involves collecting diving rings from the pool, spinning in circles, crossing a balance beam, tossing the same diving rings into hula hoops, carrying a bag of puzzle pieces across the pool via raft, and then, finally, solving the actual puzzle.
Spoiler Alert: It's spells out "Mom Is Having a Baby."
And the minute one of the girls finally figures it out, Scott and Camber's son Tayce starts crying somewhere offscreen as if on cue.
Probably pissed he's not gonna be the baby of the family anymore. Sorry, dude—but it looks like the Simson's have a pretty strong alliance going here, so unless you've got a hidden immunity idol stashed in your swim trunks somewhere, I'm gonna go ahead and say the decision is final.

Yes, the video is kind of long—it clocks in at over seven minutes. But just like scoring a spoonful of peanut butter after you've just balanced on a pole for three hours, the payoff is totally worth it so you should go watch it now.
The tribe has spoken.
