It's another year, and another husband has managed to steal his wife's pee to find out she was pregnant. Following in the footsteps of viral parent vloggers Sam and Nia, one Georgia dad also decided to turn the tables and surprise his wife with a pregnancy announcement.
Tim Brummel noticed that his wife Rachel "acted a little bit pregnant" about six weeks before he started shooting his viral YouTube video. We don't know what the hell "acted a little bit pregnant" means because what he describes next could indicate pregnancy ... or PMS ... or exhaustion from chasing after their three boys. But the symptoms were strong enough for Tim to doubt his vasectomy.
Yes, his vasectomy.
Turns out, Tim got a vasectomy about eight months before, so the idea that the couple could be expecting another baby wasn't even on their minds—until Tim realized he had never gotten the test results from his five-month checkup. Apparently, the doctor had forgotten to tell him that the procedure was not successful.
So, the dad got to work. He disabled the toilet and flushed it so there wasn't a lot of water to dilute the urine. When Rachel went pee, Tim had a good enough sample for a pregnancy test, which came out positive.
Tim delivered the news to Rachel when she returned from a baby shower (so ironic). You can watch the whole moment here:
The video has reached more than 1.3 million views since August 19, which was so unexpected for the Brummels, who initially uploaded the video as a surprise pregnancy announcement for family and friends.
If you have a million questions swimming in your head right now, don't worry: The couple also posted a follow-up video that answered viewers' most burning questions, like "Why would you guys be happy about having a baby after a vasectomy?" Turns out, they've always wanted a big family and initially thought adoption was the next step (which they're still keeping in mind for baby No. 5).
Without a doubt, the next baby will be a welcome addition to the family. As one of the Brummel kids says in the video, they're "way way way way way way way way way too excited."
