Soldier Dressed as Santa Gets Unexpected Surprise From Pregnant Wife (VIDEO)

Love It! 12

Brittney Dalby & Santa

Hands down, this HAS to be one of the best military reunions I've seen to this day. In order to give his pregnant wife the surprise of her life, a Utah soldier dressed up as Santa and showed up at her birthday party, which was taking place at a Texas Roadhouse restaurant.

Brittney Dalby was told to go sit on Santa's lap after his arrival, and she obliged -- though she definitely appeared to be a little shy about it. And then when "Santa" pulled off his beard and tried to kiss her, she did what any faithful pregnant wife would do. She turned her head.

But then she figured out his true identity, and ... well, you might want to get the tissues ready before watching this video clip.

Ok, first of all -- it was so heartwarming when Brittney realized Santa was actually her husband Ryan. But then to hear that she went into labor a mere day after the big surprise?!? Seems a little too coincidental, doesn't it?

Ryan was not even supposed to come home for a few more weeks but was allowed early leave because his wife was nine months pregnant. But she wasn't due until December 28, so he thought he was arriving in plenty of time! Good thing he showed up when he did and didn't wait another day or two; otherwise, he would've missed the birth of his daughter altogether.

Isn't it funny the way things work out? What a Christmas miracle for this beautiful little family. Seeing them all together on that video is just wonderful -- though I'm sure from this point forward, Brittney will never look at Santa the same way again.

Actually if anyone has taken lamaz they know that sex can stimulate birth, and if he was just home hello!!

Would've been nice if I could have seen her and her husband instead of the woman just standing next to her!
