As every parent knows, having a child is a huge responsibility and commitment. Most families must think long and hard about whether or not they are capable of sustaining their lifestyles while taking care of a child, and if they’re financially stable enough to afford the cost of having a baby.

But sometimes, it’s just a matter of time and space. Maybe it’s not the right time, or maybe you already have too many kids!

A mom and her husband knew that their three children really wanted another sibling, but they refused to add to the family. The kids asked again and again for years but got the same answer every time. Their youngest especially wanted another member of the family to care for.

But then, as fate would have it, the mom got pregnant! Her kids were going to get a little brother or sister after all.

Mom announced the pregnancy and filmed her kids’ hilarious reactions to the news. At first, they’re confused as to why they received baby gifts. Then, a baby onesie reveals the truth: the little one is due the next January. They can barely contain their excitement. As expected, the youngest child is the most shocked and thrilled!

The Cross family eventually welcomed baby Landon in December 2016 instead of January 2017.

Please SHARE if you’re an older sibling who couldn’t wait to welcome a new baby home, just like these kids!
