Becoming a grandparent for the first time is always such exciting news—even if some people don’t exactly know how to express themselves.
In 2013, Justin and Sarah Hall found out that they were having a baby. It was their first child, which meant it would be their parents’ first grandchild.
The couple decided to have some fun with breaking the news to Sarah’s parents and record their reaction on a hidden camera.
The couple made a sign with the baby’s due date, surrounded by baby clothes. They hung it up for the future grandparents to find.
With the cameras rolling, Sarah’s mom entered the room and immediately noticed the sign.
She knows right away what the sign means. She goes to her daughter in the other room, who confirms that she’s two months pregnant.
But her dad remains in the room—seemingly unresponsive to the news.
His wife remains ecstatic and even jumps up and down, but the new granddad still doesn’t have much of a reaction.
But then, mom leaves the room again—and when dad is sure there’s no one around…
…he finally lets his feelings out in the most hilarious way.
Apparently, the new granddad was just trying to keep it cool, acting tough, when deep down he was thrilled that his daughter was having a baby—so much so that he literally jumped for joy.
Little did he realize a camera caught the whole thing! Over 8 million people have now viewed the video on YouTube. Hopefully when the baby arrived for real, he was able to drop the act and just let all the joy out.
