A military wife had a surprise for her husband that she was waiting to show him until he returned home- She was pregnant. Any parent’s dream. But to keep the surprise she went through a lot of effort to make sure he didn’t find out until he returned back to the United States.
Kelley Harrington, of Raleigh, NC learned her fourth child was on the way only a week after her husband, Craig, left for his US Navy Deployment. Instead of telling him immediately, Kelley decided to wait until he was able to see her in person. “It was all very sudden,” she said. “Neither of us expected it to happen, and Craig was only home for a little bit of the time.”
After 6 months at sea, Craig finally returned home to Raleigh where he got to finally see his 3 children and his wife. But that’s when Kelley finally revealed that she was pregnant to her husband when he saw that she was already 6 months pregnant. Craig was shocked, to say the least. He couldn’t believe it. For the whole time leading up to his arrival, Kelly managed to hide her secret from Craig.
It was difficult to conceal this type of big news especially with the uncertainty that Kelley had of Craig’s well-being at sea. “Kelley said, ‘Surprise!’ when I saw her and it took me a second to realize what she was even talking about! ” Craig said. January is the estimated due date for the baby, and after this event, Craig and Kelley finally shared the news with everyone- their baby is a girl.
