Rachel Brummel’s husband Tim had a vasectomy after their third child. They thought that their family was complete, and they seemed as happy as can be.
It doesn’t occur often that a man can tell his wife or girlfriend that she’s pregnant without her knowing, but Tim Brummel managed to know about their new child before his wife Rachel. The loving couple from Atlanta already had three sweet children and thought their family was complete, but little did they know that a fourth child was on its way.
After the birth of their three children, the couple decided to have a vasectomy, in order not to worry about anticonception or pregnancies. Eight months after the procedure, Tim discovered Rachel looked “a bit pregnant”.
According to Tim, she was often tired, felt nauseous once in a while and ate more than usual. At the time, they were laughing the possibility of pregnancy away, because they knew it wasn’t possible due to the vasectomy.
That’s when Tim realized that he never got the test results back from his vasectomy. He got in touch with the doctor and he told him that the procedure wasn’t successful and that they simply forgot to tell them.
Afterward, Tim hatched up an ingenious plan to find out whether or not Rachel was pregnant. He wanted to find out without her knowing, and decided to rig the toilet so that the water couldn’t be flushed away. He then secretly tested Rachel’s pee with a pregnancy test.
Tim surprised Rachel with the positive test when she got home and documented the entire process in a video that quickly went viral. Tim even wrote a card for the big surprise. The card said: “To My Baby Mama: If you ever worried that life would be a bore, put that fear aside, you are now a mommy of four”. Rachel responds absolutely open-mouthed and couldn’t believe it at first, but she is clearly very, very happy with the news. A beautiful surprise and an extremely heartwarming moment.
