"Is this going on YouTube?" a soldier named Dale innocently asks, as he dives into a present from his wife. "No," she answers back, and then he opens his gift, which is the surprise of the year.

Note: Dale expresses massive shock, which includes an F-bomb — so turn your speakers down if you're at work or around your kids!

I love pregnancy announcements, and now that cellphones are owned by so many, more and more videos are popping up that capture moments that we weren't privy to even just a short decade ago. I just adore this guy — seeing his smile when he first opens it, and once it sinks in what he's looking at, the look of shock that washes across his face is absolutely priceless.

If I was going to record a pregnancy announcement, I would definitely need to think of something clever — because when I announced my pregnancies, it was mainly me handing over the pregnancy test in blind shock to my husband. This doesn't mean I wasn't delighted; it was more of a huge surprise each time, even though I wanted to have a baby.
