A lot of parents cannot wait to tell their children that they are about to become big brothers or sisters. On the other hand, some parents keep it to themselves until first, second, or even the third trimester. How and when you should tell your child that you are pregnant is completely up to you. The child’s reaction may vary according to age and personality, so most psychologists advise that parents break the news as gently as possible.
You have probably seen videos of parents revealing their pregnancy to their children online. The reactions are oftentimes funny and amusing to watch. Some scream with delight while others cry when they realize they aren’t going to be the center of attention anymore.

When he reads the words “Love, Baby Vasquez,” the boy finally understands that he is about to become a big brother. He tries to soak in the information at first until his mother confirms his suspicion out loud. The boy goes from happy to completely overjoyed as he shouts “Yes!” over and over again. His reaction was so sudden that his pregnant mom is caught completely off guard. Too bad the video cuts off after he starts screaming! It would have been great to see what the happy family did next.
The boy’s reaction shows that his baby brother or sister is extremely lucky to have such an awesome older brother. Most kids would only react this way for a new toy, but a new family member is definitely more priceless than any store-bought gift.
