With the amount of creativity put into gender reveal and pregnancy reveal events and videos, you would think that people would have run out of ideas by now. But the internet never fails to disappoint.
Christy Allred found out she was pregnant on the same day as her husband’s birthday. Instead of telling him immediately like she wanted to, she decided to go all out and make his special day one to remember for a long time. The couple had five children already, so Christy thought number six might be the last one!
Christy took her husband, Kelly, to Red Robin, where she had called in advance in order to coordinate her plan to tell him she was pregnant.
That night, after arriving at the restaurant, Christy was so nervous that she almost forgot to tell the staff she was the one that called earlier for the birthday surprise.
“I got a chance when Kelly got a bathroom break,” Christy said, and the plan was on when Kelly returned to their booth.
The whole thing was caught on video, too.
Instead of, “We’re having a baby!” or any other obvious, generic message, Christy wanted to go more towards the funny side. “Thanks for knockin’ me up!!!” was the message on the cake, to imply that she had a bun in the oven.
Christy was hoping to make Kelly laugh and realize at the same time what the message implied.
The video started out with a shot of the cake, and then it was brought out to the birthday boy sitting with his wife at the booth.
“You did that on purpose, that’s why you wanted to come here,” Kelly said to his wife after seeing the cake. After being married for 15 years, it’s no surprise that Kelly would know his wife well enough to suspect a surprise coming on his birthday.
When he’s told to read the message on the birthday cake, the only thing he says at first is, “Yeah, 5 times,” referring to the couple’s five boys.
Kelly just thought his wife was thanking him for all the kids she had given him, in a humorous way. She asked him to read it again, but he kept saying “five times,” much to the camerawoman’s and Christy’s amusement.
Christy decided to spit it out that she was pregnant at that point—and Kelly was elated and shocked! The audience, presumably the Red Robin staff, applauded the couple.
Christy later said that she could have added the word “again” to the phrase in order to make it more obvious, but she said, “I don’t think his reaction would have been half as funny!”
The baby was born on December 6th, 2016, and turned out to be the first baby girl in the family!
Even after six kids, Christy and Kelly’s love seems to be going strong!
