This is the hilarious moment a grandma-to-be fails to understand her daughter’s creative pregnancy reveal.
Ashley Embry, 34, from Nashville, Tennessee, was just 11 weeks pregnant when she came up with a clever way to surprise her mum with the news.
The music publisher and author decided to create her own cards for a game called Mad Gab – whereby each card has a string of words that don’t make sense together but when spoken aloud sound different.
The hilarious video shows Wendy Hertzog, 63, saying ‘eye mag own abbey aground mow there’ which becomes ‘I’m gonna be a grandmother.’
But unfortunately for Wendy, it took more than just a few attempts before she grasped the meaning of the words.
The wait is worthwhile though as Wendy screams when she realises Ashley and her son-in-law, Mason, 35, are expecting their first child and she cannot contain her excitement.
Ashley said: “I love surprises and we’d had the game Mad Gab when I was growing up, and it always generated big laughs when we played.
“I am currently five and a half months pregnant, though at the time of the video I was only 11 weeks along and my mum was the first person we told.
“I managed to create my own cards with a scanner, clever Photoshop skills, and a printer that knew exactly what card shape I needed to make the fake cards blend in with the real cards. It was a lot of fun to create.
“Wendy has wanted to become a grandmother for years and we couldn’t have asked for a better reaction.
“She hadn’t got a clue but we knew she’d be so happy, I knew she would scream and jump up and down, I am so glad we captured it on video to have forever!”
The couple’s baby is due on August 30 and they’ve already found out they’re having a girl.
Ashley added: “We are so excited to meet our baby girl.
“We know Wendy will be the best grandmother but we couldn’t not mention by dad, Noel Hertzog who tragically died four years ago before he got the chance to become a grandfather.
“However, there was beautiful timing in that we heard our baby’s heartbeat for the very first time on the anniversary of his passing.”
