Footage of a man bursting into tears upon learning his wife is finally pregnant is melting hearts around the world.

The man, from the US state of Virginia, breaks down after hearing the good news following years of trying for a child.

The couple, Dana Griffin-Graves and husband Arkell Graves have been hoping to hear the pitter-patter of little feet since tying the knot 17 years ago in 1998.


They explained that they had come to terms with the fact that they wouldn't have a family.

Sadly, Dana delivered a stillborn baby at six months and had four miscarriages over the years.

"We had everything planned.

"But it just didn't work so we kind of gave up," Dana told website Buzzfeed.

Miraculously she recently discovered to her extreme surprise that she was five months pregnant.

She explained that she realised something was awry when she lost no weight despite walking miles with her friends who were all successful in shedding the pounds.

After a visit to the doctor it was confirmed that she was pregnant and she began planning how best to tell her husband.

She came up with a genius plan and placed freshly baked buns in the oven alongside a picture of the baby's ultrasound picture.

The video has been viewed thousands of times on You Tube.

Dana then filmed his reaction and it is unmissable.

As realisation slowly dawns a huge grin spreads across his face.

"You're pregnant?" he keeps saying.
