When couple Mark and Kelly Epperson were brought outside by their daughter Rachel and her husband Jacob on Christmas morning, they had no idea what they were in for.
Rachel and Jacob Whitley set up a camera to film the reaction from the Epperson couple, then instructed they close their eyes.
Unsure of what was happening, neither Mark nor Kelly wanted to just stand there blind—but trusting in their daughter and son-in-law, they complied.
With their eyes tightly shut, Rachel then went to work putting a small chalkboard sign in each of their hands for a photo shoot. Each board had a word on it, but they were not allowed to look!
Satisfied with her work, she took the picture and then told them to read what their sign said—Mom’s reaction, once it dawned on her, was to burst into tears!
Mark held a sign that said “Grandpa” in blue, while Kelly was holding pink script declaring her “Grandma.”
The pair were set to become grandparents for the first time!
The couple confirmed they’re expecting a baby girl, but the details are almost irrelevant in light of the good news itself. To them, all they hear is how their family is growing—and all they can think about is all the presents they’re about to buy!
The holidays are a time for giving—and a time for surprises—and that makes a gift like this one something extra special!
