It’s difficult enough keeping your pregnancy a secret for 12 weeks, let alone biting your tongue for more than 270 days if you know the gender but are keeping it to yourselves. But can you imagine telling your family you’re having just one baby, when you know you’re pregnant with twins?

Katherine writes on her Facebook page that “for 9 months, we left out one special detail that was kind of a big deal and it turned the best day of our lives to the GREATEST DAY EVER!”

There were a few people in on the big surprise, including the couple’s doctors and photographer Cher Bebe Birth Stories, who managed to capture the touching moment on video.

In the video new dad Lance asks their gathered family if they think the baby is a girl or a boy – a show of hands shows the bets were fifty-fifty. But when he asks if anyone thought they were having twins, the real secret is revealed.
