See Man’s Reaction When His Wife Says She’s Pregnant After 17 Years Of Trying

When Dana Griffin-Graves created a playful surprise for her husband Arkell to announce her pregnancy, she knew he’d react emotionally, but she had no idea that he would cry tears of joy! Given the rough time they’ve had while trying for a child, however, Arkell’s response becomes all the more meaningful.

The two have been trying to conceive a child since their wedding almost 17 years ago, but after four miscarriages and a stillbirth, they were ready to give up. “It was definitely a struggle… a rollercoaster with emotions,” Dana told a local news station. “I just got to the point where I was like ‘you know what, I want to stop trying.'”

“I have never been that excited before in my life,” said Arkell. “Not mainly for myself, but for her.” Doctors have said that the baby boy, five months along, is doing fine and that he is due in February.

I wonder why people use the phones to capture there very intimate moments and put it on the web? He asks her to come to him and she still keeps holding that f***ing phone instead of enjoying and embracing this moment together. This is kind of sad indeed.

What sucks is that your comment is awesome, supportive, and positive, yet the comment where someone complained has more likes.
