Pregnancy reveals and baby announcements have become somewhat of an internet favorite. It’s honestly no shock to see why surprising your family with this exciting news is one of the greatest gifts. But for one father, finding out he was going to be a grandfather was all too much!
One Texas mom-to-be wanted to surprise her parents in a creative way. Alexa Goolsby decided to play ‘The Whisper Challenge’ which was a game inspired by Jimmy Fallon’s ‘The Tonight Show’ parlor game.
The idea of the game is that one player wears noise-canceling headphones while another player says a phrase to decipher. The person wearing the headphones has to try lip read and guess what the other player is saying – simple.
Alexa and her husband decided to play the game to reveal the pregnancy to her parents – this would be their first grandchild.
“You are going to be a grandfather.”
While Alexa’s parents wore the headphones, they began by saying “I’m pregnant”. Alexa’s mom soon cottoned on, but Alexa’s father hadn’t a clue.
Then they began to repeat the phrase “You are going to be a grandfather.” – it took him a while, but soon he started getting close.
Eventually, her dad guessed. He shouted the sentence at the top of his voice then paused as he realized what he’d just said.
I’m going to be a grandfather?!
You can hear just how excited and thrilled he is when he finds out. He leaps out of his chair, filled with joy and holding back tears.
“This was definitely a family game day for the books!” Alexa wrote on her Facebook page. The video has now been seen on her YouTube channel nearly 7 million times! It’s not hard to see why.
