They say everything happens for a reason, and this family in Atlanta couldn't be happier about some things not going according to plan. Tim Brummel and his wife, Rachel, have three sons — Jackson, 4, Sawyer, 3, and Wyatt, 1 — and Tim decided to have a vasectomy last December because they wanted to expand their family through adoption. It was only when Rachel started showing "signs of being pregnant" that he questioned whether his procedure was a success. Tim called his doctor, and it turns out that "one side was unsuccessfully clipped."
Tim took this as an opportunity to surprise his wife with the unexpected yet incredible news that they were going to have a fourth child. "How many guys get the chance to tell their wife she is pregnant? I wanted to surprise her!" he told People. "I turned off the toilet water in the middle of the night and flushed so there was no water in it . . . And the test came back positive!"
He surprised Rachel with flowers and the positive pregnancy test while he recorded the entire thing. Although their fourth baby boy is expected in March 2017, the Brummel family is still considering adopting another child. "We just couldn't be happier," Tim said. "It's funny how life works out like that sometimes."
