Nancy Ray and her husband Will were already parents to two adorable little girls when they found out they were expecting for a third time. The couple from Raleigh, North Carolina got the surprise of a lifetime when the time for Nancy to deliver came, the baby girl they were expecting was, in fact, a little boy! and her reaction is melting people’s hearts across the globe!
Nancy said, “We had gender surprises with our first two and we were totally shocked that both of them were girls. This time, Will wanted to know if we were going to be welcoming another girl so he could mentally prepare to be an all-girl dad, so we decided to find out.”
Upon getting an ultrasound around the 18-week mark, the couple was informed that Nancy was indeed pregnant with a baby girl.
However, when it was time to deliver the baby, the couple was incredibly shocked to discover that the ultrasound was mistaken.
The couple’s birth photographer, Lauren Jolly, managed to capture the priceless moment Nancy and Will learned that she had actually given birth to a baby boy.
“I was just holding her and saying how beautiful she was and when it was time to cut the cord, I turned the baby over and I said, ‘What is that — is this a boy baby!?’” Nancy recalled.
“The midwives said, ‘Yes, we were waiting for you to see! My husband runs over to check to make sure it was really a boy and he proceeds to literally fall on the floor. It was just hilarious. We were in shock on a lot of levels.” She added.
Nancy and Will had initially decided to name their would-be baby girl Rosie but seeing as there was a change of plans, they decided to name their son Beaufort.
“My husband is the happiest he could ever be. He always wanted a boy. He has just loved every second with him.” Nancy revealed adding that her husband was absolutely thrilled to have another man around the house.
