Surprise Chalkboard Pregnancy Announcement

This Woman Used a Chalkboard to Surprise Her Husband With Her Pregnancy

This Woman Used a Chalkboard to Surprise Her Husband With Her Pregnancy

When Brandon Dow's wife, Bri, asked him to do a couple photo shoot with her, he definitely had no idea that he was going to get the surprise of a lifetime written on a tiny chalkboard: he's going to be a daddy. Photographer Samantha Boos said Bri's excitement was palpable throughout the photo shoot, as she had known she was pregnant without telling Brandon for two whole weeks. After taking a few standard couple snaps, Samantha had the pair stand back to back and each write three words to describe each other on a chalkboard — but Bri's board was already decorated with the words "You're going to be a daddy."

"Bri seemed to be getting antsy knowing that in a minute she was about to tell her husband the secret she had been keeping," Samantha told us. "I could see she just wanted to blurt it out and tell him. When I told them to turn around, Brandon stared at her board for a second, processing what she wrote. Then he burst into tears and ran to hug her."

Scroll through to see the seriously adorable photos of the surprise announcement.
