Oh my goodness, this father’s reaction is truly one for the ages. I don’t think I have ever seen such a big, strong, powerful reaction since Angel received a quarter of a million dollars on Undercover Boss.

However, this had absolutely nothing to do with money! Julio Pena and his wife, Kari, have four daughters. When Kari got pregnant for a fifth time, they wanted the baby’s gender to be a surprise.

They had their doctor provide the gender in a sealed envelop. They didn’t open it. The only person who knew was their 16-year-old daughter, Chastity.

Chastity had the cake made so that when the parents cut into it, the inside would be blue for a boy or pink for a girl. When Julio cuts into the cake and sees the blue, he completely loses control.

The father screams and collapses in pure joy.

“It was like I collapsed and fainted at the same time,” Julio told ABC News’ Suzan Clarke. “I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. For a boy. They had to sit me down on the sofa and I couldn’t say anything. I was like in shock.”

Let’s just say, we think there will be plenty of father-and-son bonding between those two in the future!

Please SHARE with your friends and family if Julio’s reaction put a big ol’ smile on your face!
