Grandpa opens son’s fishing bag, sees ‘Coming Soon’ baby onesie and loses it: ‘I ain’t crying’

These grandparents got the surprise of their life… stuffed in a tiny fishing bag. 

Kyleigh Shepherd and her husband came up with the perfect way to tell her in-laws she was expecting their son. Little did she know that her father-in-law would have that big of a reaction. Shepherd shared the moment from 2020 on TikTok

“My father-in-law thought my husband was just showing him his new fishing bag,” the video caption read

The father-in-law opened the fishing bag, took one look and started shouting in joy. 

“Aaaaaah! No! Oh my goodness! Woo! Oh my goodness! Boy, I’ve been waiting on some of these. Check that out. Yes, ma’am,” he yelled

But the future grandpa didn’t tell his wife what was happening — she looked stunned and nervous. The family insisted that she look in the fishing bag. 

“I don’t know if I want to… There’s something else to it,” the grandma-to-be said

Finally, she looked inside and saw a small onesie that read “Coming Soon.” She instantly started crying tears of joy. 

“I knew it! I kept telling you that!” the grandma said

“I ain’t crying,” the grandpa said, resisting the impulse. 

The touching family moment received 1.2 million views on TikTok

“That’s the reaction EVERYONE WANTS!! What a precious set of in-laws,” a TikToker said

“That baby will be surrounded with lots of love,” another wrote

“This is amazing! A beautiful way to tell them and their happiness jumped off the camera. Beautiful. The way it should be!” a person commented

“Parents don’t wanna be nothing but grandparents! That love hits different,” someone said

“I love papa’s reaction. That man is beside himself with joy,” a user added
