When 8-year-old Lily was sat down and told by her step-father that he and her mother had a spontaneous present for her, Lily was all smiles.

First she pulled out a new bathing suit—which, sure, was going to be great for summer. Then came the jewelry box.

Then came the biggest surprise of all.

Watch the video above to see the priceless, genuine reaction.

“My step-daughter Lily who is 8 years old has been asking us for a while when she was going to get a little brother/sister. We found out my fiancé was pregnant and had to keep it a secret for a while. We decided to tell her after our 12-week ultrasound by surprising her with a gift “just because.” She had no idea what was in store for her. She slowly started opening the bag first seeing a bathing suit to kind of throw her off, then she saw a picture of the ultrasound but she still wasn’t sure what it was. Next came the jewelry box and inside was a necklace that said: “I’m going to be a big sister.” It finally hit her and she started crying tears of joy and hugged mom. She can’t wait to be a big sister!” the father wrote.
