There are few moments more emotional than a pregnancy announcement. Letting your loved ones know there’s going to be a new addition to the family is life-changing and exciting for everyone.
Howden’s mom read a small note attached to a Christmas gift bag. The bag was full of mostly tissue paper and a tiny gift.
“The note said, ‘I’m sorry your Christmas present is a little early, but guess what, I’m a little late,'” the mom-to-be explained.
However, Howden’s mother didn’t quite understand what the message meant — until she unwrapped the gift. It was a small rectangle wrapped in gold paper. Howden’s mother tore into the package, and the minute she did, she gasped and covered her mouth in shock. The grandma-to-be began to tear up. Howden’s sister gave her a big hug. The pregnancy was official.
The touching video racked up 16.2 million views on TikTok.
“Those happy tears are the best,” someone commented.
“I’m crying. I can’t wait to have this moment,” another wrote.
“It’s an amazing feeling becoming a grandmother!” a person said.
