For soon-to-be parents, the first ultrasound is the most special moment. Having your baby’s heartbeat confirmed, seeing the grainy image on the screen and knowing it’s a life you created, is enough to get emotions running high.

So imagine how it would feel if your ultrasound revealed more than one baby… and you discovered you were having twins!

That’s exactly what happened to one expectant mother when she settled back for her first ultrasound. Luckily for us, the moment was filmed by her husband and uploaded to YouTube for the world to watch.

It might have been posted in 2009, but the situation, and mom’s reaction, is timeless.

All starts fairly normally until the sonographer pauses mid-sentence, seeing something on the screen. She says,

“You guys – there really are two.”

The mom, Christina Von, instantly retorts back:

“Shut up.”

From behind the camera, dad asks if the sonographer is being serious. She replies “yes” and shows her the screen, where two blobs can just about be made out – as proof.

But it’s still not enough for Christina to believe it. She can only ask again and again, “Are you being serious?”

Imagine having just adjusted to the idea of one baby inside you, to learn that you’ve actually got two! It must be something that takes a whole lot of time to sink in.

It’s only when the sonographer shows Christina the screen that things finally click into place for her. She lies back in bed with her hand over her face, laughing hysterically.

What she says next is pretty hilarious:

“Oh, my God, what did you do? This is natural as well. Oh, my God, we’re done.”

Christina’s husband wisely chooses to stay silent behind the camera – but what a moment to have captured forever!

As the shock continues to set in for Christina, she starts making points against why she shouldn’t be having twins:

“I’m a little person, I can’t carry two babies.”

Dad admits that he’s been joking about this situation happening since the very beginning of Christina’s pregnancy, so perhaps he thinks he genuinely brought the second baby into her body. She certainly doesn’t seem best pleased with him right now, saying,

“I’m going to kill you.”

The conversation moves to more general topics about having twins, including how much weight Christina will need to gain (dad jokes that she’ll need more ice cream) and a chat about the babies’ health at this time.

But Christina is clearly still in shock. Dad sniggers as she lays back and puts her hands over her face, completely lost for words.

Nine months later, Christina posted a comment beneath her video to update us all on her journey into parenthood. She wrote:

“Yes. The girls are 1 week shy of being 1 year old. I did have Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome so I was on bedrest for several months, and they were in the NICU for 8 weeks, but they are healthy and happy… :)”

Since being posted more than 10 years ago, the video has racked up more than 3 million views. Many people in the comments are asking for a 10-year update, but so far, Christina has kept us in the dark.

How would you react if you found out you were expecting twins? You can watch Christina’s hilarious response in the video below.
