Deaf Husband Gets Surprise Pregnancy Announcement

A Wife Surprises Her Deaf Husband That She’s Pregnant, and His Response Is Everything

When Brittany LeBlanc surprised her husband with a gift, David Welch had no idea that the contents of the bag would be life changing.

Brittany recorded David, who is deaf, and although he uses American Sign Language throughout the clip, you don't need to be able to read his signs in order to be moved by his stunned reaction.

As David opens the bag, the first clue he unwraps from the tissue paper is a Baby Ruth chocolate bar. Understandably confused, he goes in for the next item in the bag and pulls out a bottle of Dad's Root Beer. As he reads the label you can see understanding slowly sweep across David's face. He looks back at his wife for confirmation, but it isn't until he grabs the third clue from the bag with his hand shaking — two positive pregnancy tests — that he bursts into tears of joy.
