Photobooth baby announcement goes viral

MINNEAPOLIS - A pregnancy announcement shared by a Minnesota couple has been viewed more than 1.5 million times.

The couple, from Minneapolis, posted the video on YouTube on Christmas Eve. Since then, it's been shared on numerous websites across the country.

During an evening at Pizzeria Lola, the couple went into the pizza shop's photobooth where the woman in the video, identified as Jessica Devins by her YouTube profile, decided to pull off the ultimate surprise.

Jessica notes that she and her husband are big photobooth fanatics, saying, "It's a tradition that they can track back to their first date. Now they can't walk past a booth without stopping."

But this time, she brought in a secret prop.

As the couple gets ready to pose for the first shot, Jessica raises a small baby hat into the frame with the word, "Baby."

As soon as her husband sees the photo come across the screen, he looks down at the hat in disbelief.

After it starts to sink in, the emotions set in and it's a truly precious moment, captured on film.

Devins also recorded the entire sequence on her camera phone and luckily, shared it with the masses.

Devins wrote in the YouTube comments that they are truly over the moon with joy.

"To see how many people like our video is just heart warming!!" she writes. "We posted it hoping that it would inspire someone else someday."

Congrats to the new parents!
