Kids React to Mom's Pregnancy Announcement & It's Hilariously Awful (VIDEO)

LOL 80

Yesterday I saw the most adorable video being linked around the Internet. In the clip, an older couple react to the news that their daughter is pregnant, and their reaction is absolutely priceless. Grandma and Grandpa whoop, hug each other, scream, and sob out loud with pure unadulterated joy. I mean, it's one of the sweetest little home videos I think I've ever seen.

While that particular video is 100 percent awesome, there's something about the opposite sort of reaction that has its own charm, too. As you're about to see, some people aren't quite so thrilled to hear that there's going to be a new addition to the family—especially if they're very young, and the baby in question is going to be their new brother or sister.

In this video, a mom is also sharing the happy news that she's pregnant. The only difference is, she's telling her kids instead of her parents. Oh, and the other difference is that instead of reacting with joy, the kids have a GIANT CRAZY MELTDOWN.

Take a look:

Okay, maybe it's terrible to laugh at this, but it's just so hilarious how it progresses. First the little boy thinks it's a joke, then he completely falls apart, then the sister—who seemed generally fine with the announcement at first—starts crying, and then a tiny toddler comes in and joins the chorus of weeping. Meanwhile, Mom just looks at the camera like WTF did I get myself into, here?

My first son was still pretty little when we told him that another baby was on the way, and to be honest, I don't think he fully understood what was going on until we brought his "baby brudda" home from the hospital. I can imagine how the reaction might be different when a kid is older (and when they already have a house full of siblings), but I bet the mom in that video had NO IDEA she was going to capture that sort of Hallmark Moment on video. Talk about a hilarious keepsake, though, right? You know ... assuming the kids eventually warmed up to the idea.

How did your kid(s) react to hearing they were going to have a brother or sister? Were they happy, or not so much?

I feel bad for the little boy. He probably hasn't gotten very much attention since his younger sisters were born and he's already connected the dots. He knows if there's another baby, there's even less attention for him. :(

That's so funny, all my kids were back to back. Well, more accurately put- backtoback. The first two are 14 months apart, and the middle from the youngest areonly 17 months apart. We never really pregnant bellyhad to deal with reactions like this, I have asked the kids, and none of them really remember a time without the others. (I write this BTW, on my eldest sons tenth birthday.) The only reaction story I have to tell is the when I was pregnant with our daughter, I would (almost like clockwork) fall asleep on the couch everyday about 3pm. Almost everyday, I would awake 20 minutes later to saltine crackers being shoved in my hanging open from sleep mouth. The reason? Riley, my son, would reasonable argue- the baby needs to be fed, Mom!

Kid #2 was apathetic about kid #3 in my house. But kid #1 loves, and was always excited about the other #2-4.

All 3 older ones were THRILLED about #4.

The only reason #2 wasn't too happy about #3, is because we made the mistake of letting her cosleep until the same night that #3 was born. It was her first night away from mommy, first night in her own bed, and we brought home some screamy thing that shit everywhere.

Well, at least that how I interpret her reaction

I have 3 kids two boys 12 and 2 and a daughter who is 8. They were thrilled when I told them I was pregnant again. Although my daughter did cry when we found out it was another boy! My mom had 6 kids and I remember being very excited with each new baby. So this is a very unusual reaction to me!

My brother and I are only 17 months apart and apparently when they brought him home from the hospital the only interaction I would have with him for the first week was to stand by his bassinet and wave at him and say "Bye baby...bye....Bye baby....bye"

Till this day when ever my husband and I tell our kids we need to talk to them my oldest's immediate reaction is "You're not pregnant are you?" She wasn't overjoyed at the news that #3 was coming but warmed up when she turned out to be a girl instead of a boy. So she hates when we make any announcements.

I was 17 when I found out my step mom was pregnant with her third kid and I cried ha. She had a miscarriage but got pregnant again the next year and I handled that more stoically but still wasn't happy.

Ahhh... those kids are total brats! Especially the girl who started crying when she realized that she would get a better response that way. Man.

Both those kids need an ass whoopin sounds like mommy and daddy spoiled them so bad that they need to see a damn shrink to get rid of their entitled ass attitude.

That little boy made me laugh so hard, his reaction was priceless.
