Grandma's Priceless Reaction To Baby Announcement

Jim's mom had been hoping for a grandchild for a long time. Watch her priceless reaction when she hears the good news.


[MUSIC] Hi I'm Jamie. Hi I'm Jim. We're the Waxmans and we live in Tallahassee, Florida. We waited a little while to get pregnant. We were married about five years, four or five years before we got pregnant. And his parents, they were very, very eager for grandchildren. To the point where my mother-in-law, she would write Christmas cards to us and say, thank you for my beautiful grandchildren. And we'd both read it and say, what gr, what grandchildren? We don't have any It wasn't healthy. It wa [LAUGH] So, when Jamie finally was pregnant. We decided that it would be fun to secretly record us announcing that we were pregnant. Set your coffee down. So it was Valentine's Day and we decided to wrap two gifts for them. And each one had a little sonogram in it. And like a bib with one was blue, one was pink. Because of course we didn't know the sex of the baby at that time. Jim had a very large camera and his parents, God bless them, were very I guess naive with technology. So Jim was like, oh, I'm just trying to fix this camera. It's been giving me problems. So he's filming the whole time and his parents just think, oh, he is just fixing his camera. They didn't make it hard to trick. [LAUGHTER] So we had brunch, and then we came into the living room, and we said oh, we have some gifts for you for Valentine's day. And they're on the couch, and they're opening their gifts, and we are like all right, both at the same time. [MUSIC] [NOISE] [INAUDIBLE] [LAUGH] Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God. It is just a full body, I'm going to give you everything I've got from my head to my toes to show you how excited I am that I'm going to be a grandmother. I mean, I'm sorry. That you're going to have a child. Aah! [LAUGH] I didn't believe it at first. I didn't realize exactly what it was, that initial shock of oh, what aw, ha. You know, I'm ready to scream all over again. [LAUGH] Oh, my gosh. Oh, oh. NOISE] [LAUGH] I was just really surprised it took me a moment to catch on to what, what was going on. [NOISE]. We knew we were going to get a reaction out of her and she delivered beyond our expectations. [LAUGH] I mean. [CROSSTALK] [MUSIC] So, her name is Evelyn and her fifth birthday is actually today, when we are filming this [MUSIC] So it's kind of a special full circle thing that this all came together on her fifth birthday. Okay should we say happy birthday gramme pop. Mm-hm. And also we're so excited because we're pregnant again. So I'm about 25 weeks along. And we actually have a really cute video of how we told Evelyn. mom, who's that? For? Well, that's for your new little baby brother or sister. [MUSIC] Me? Your gonna have a, your gonna be a big sister. When? Well, mommy has a baby in her belly. You do? I do. So we have an extra play doll for our new baby brother or ba-, or baby sister. Dad! Did you hear that? [LAUGH] Mom has a baby in her belly! Certainly the video, in and of itself, is not life-changing. But it's just one of those sweet details in life that the family enjoys laughing at and talking about. Those moments even that the 20 second video that took two days to talk about and plan and figure out, it's worth the 20 seconds, you know? That you're gonna have for the rest of your life to share that. Family is not this effort. It is, it is truly a joy and very effortless. [MUSIC]
