Putting up a surprise may be a bit nerve-wracking. Especially if you are trying to hide that surprise from the person you are most closed with, that would sure take a lot of hiding. For half a year, mom-of-three Natasha Daugherty kept a “huge” secret from his husband. His navy husband has been deployed, and since, she has kept a secret from him.
Natasha kept her fourth pregnancy to her husband. While she still sent photos of her and her three kids to her Navy husband, she purposefully hid her belly just to hide her pregnancy. Though it was a bit hard with her doing all the preparations alone, such as attending to her doctor appointments, buying cute tiny things for her baby. But like many people would say, all secrets will be unfolded. There came the time when Chris, Natasha’s husband had to go back home.
Natasha welcomed her husband with a big cardboard in front of her belly. Having three kids before their fourth one, surely there was no plan to have another one yet. At some point, Natasha felt guilty for she knew that her husband, at a certain part of the world, was a bit unsafe due to deployment. Thankfully, it all went well. As Natasha put the cardboard down, Chris could not believe what he was seeing. His wife was pregnant with their fourth child! Chris’ smile was immeasurable. He was so happy, seeing his family, and seeing that there will another family member yet to be born. It was indeed amazing how a simple surprise changed the life of a father. Even with the exhaustion from deployment and from the homesickness, there are still good things out there. And this particular blessing was one of those!
