After 17 years of struggling with infertility, this dad-to-be loses it when he figures out his wife is pregnant, by finding an actual bun in the oven. Just watch.
They say when you're not looking for love is when you stumble upon it, and perhaps the same can be said about pregnancy. For some couples who struggle with infertility, when they stop trying is when they suddenly discover they're about to have a baby. For Dana Griffin-Graves and her husband, Arkell, this is exactly what happened.
When they married 17 years old, they immediately started trying to get pregnant, and experienced a very long ordeal of infertility, including four miscarriages and delivering a stillborn child at 6 months. Dana told BuzzFeed News that they had given up, but when she wasn't losing weight exercising like her friends were, she began to wonder if maybe—just maybe!—she might be pregnant.
After a visit to the doctor, she discovered she was not only expecting, but five months along with a healthy boy! Once she found out, she decided to surprise her husband by putting some literal buns in the literal oven. In this sweet reveal video below, watch as he comes to the conclusion that his wife is going to have a baby. Not only is he in total shock, but his eyes are full of gratitude as he learns how far along she is and the sex of the baby.
We can't help but be inspired by this powerful story that really proves the best things come to those who wait. It may take many tries, several heartbreaks and all the hope you can muster when you're struggling with infertility, but for Dana and Arkell (and so many more couples) when you finally have a healthy pregnancy, you'll remember the trials were worth it.
