Husband in Tears After Wife’s Creative Pregnancy Announcement
After struggling with infertility for 17 years as well as experiencing four miscarriages and one stillborn birth, the Grave Family had started to give up the idea of having children, which is why husband Arkell had the most emotional reaction after Dana creatively relayed the pregnancy news by placing buns in the oven.
In a YouTube video, which already garnered over 11 million views, Dana shared what transpired during the pregnancy announcement,
The caption of the video read: “Have your tissues ready! After 4 miscarriages and 1 stillborn birth, we had given up on the idea of having babies of our own especially at our age… but God!”
The clip showed Dana asking Arkell, both 41 years old, to check on what’s cooking in the oven. Seeing the buns, he happily faced his wife, asking: “You’re pregnant?”
When Dana confirmed that she was with child and that they will be having a boy, Arkell couldn’t hold himself any longer and started bawling like a child because of overwhelming happiness.
Many people were touched by the video and sent their warm wishes and support to Dana’s pregnancy.
Dana graciously responded to the commenters, leaving a post herself saying: “Thank you for all the responses, I am overwhelmed with all the love shown. I tried to like every positive post… and wanted to comment but there’s a lot. We appreciate it all.”
The pregnancy announcement had been one of a kind experience but sadly, Dana had a rough pregnancy causing her to give birth to her son, Kaleb, at 24 weeks.
Fortunately, Kaleb is a fighter, enduring a heart surgery, intubation, and 143 days at NICU.
“Everybody sees that he is a miracle – everybody recognizes it,” Dana told People.
Kaleb’s journey is documented on a Facebook page created by Dana’s sister, entitled, “Arkell & Dana’s Baby Bun”.
In a recent post, Dana happily shared that little Kaleb’s “heart continues to get stronger. We are rejoicing because he’s only receiving medicines 8 times a day now. LORD WE THANK YOU!”
