Jane the Virgin star Justin Baldoni has mastered the art of the pregnancy announcement.
Baldoni, who plays hunky playboy Rafael, and his wife Emily Foxler are expecting their second child, and declared it to the world in the most adorable way possible. The couple enlisted the help of their 22-month-old daughter Maiya, by dressing her in a shirt that said “I’m going to be a big sister” before telling friends and family.
Lucky for us, they captured the reactions in a series of clips Baldoni shared on social media.
“Surprise!! With insane amounts of joy, gratitude (and yes, let’s be real, a tiny bit of fear)… Emily, Maiya and I are thrilled to announce that our little family is GROWING!!!” Baldoni wrote on Instagram.
The video captures touching candid moments of their loved ones learning the news, filled with plenty of gasps, exclamations and tears. His Jane the Virgin co-stars Brett Dier and Gina Rodriguez make an appearance, as does his friend musician Andy Grammar. Baldoni wrote on Instagram that he loves surprises and hopes the heartwarming video would bring joy to viewers.
“With so much darkness in the world, there’s nothing like the announcement of brand new, pure and innocent life to bring joy to the hearts of the people we love so much,” he wrote. “And what’s the point of having a platform and being happy if you keep it all to yourself!? So with that, we hope this video makes you smile.”
It certainly did. Best of luck to Baldoni, Foxler and little Maiya!
P.S. If you want another precious video, check out the first surprise video he made to announce they were pregnant with Maiya. The man certainly knows how to tug at the heartstrings.
Awwww! Dad of the year!
