The reactions range from stunned silence to enthusiastic screaming, but all of them reveal the pure emotions felt upon hearing news that a loved one is pregnant. 

Try holding back the tears while watching these aww-inducing pregnancy reveals. 

You might want to reach for the ear plugs: Lisa Englert gave her mom a Valentine's Day card telling her that she was going to be a grandma, and her shrieking reaction even had the dog in a panic

The reaction displayed by Lee Kreps may take the cake, or cinnamon bun, in terms of sheer excitement. The video of her reacting to her finding the bun in the oven — her son’s way of sharing the news — immediately went viral after its release. “A buuuuuuuuuuuun!” she screams so loud and for so long she starts coughing.

Keep that volume button down until you’ve seen the video that rivals Kreps' in terms of decibel level. 

Ashley Krauter and her husband decided to surprise her father on his 60th birthday with news of her pregnancy. It's her mother’s reaction, however, that steals the show as the woman first lets out a deafening scream, and then one “oh my gosh” after another before she runs around the kitchen crying, “I can’t believe it” (totally freaking out her little dog in the process). 

Other reactions are far more subdued, but no less emotional. The clasp of this father's hands, and the way he wipes away his tears upon hearing his daughter's news is enough to trigger waterworks.

Grandparents aren't the only ones caught on camera reacting to "we're expecting!" news. Spouses sometimes get surprised by their partners. 

One woman captured her slow-to-catch-on husband as he tried to decipher the big clue she left for him when he got home from work. The video shows the man greeting their young daughter, but not noticing the toddler's "big sister" shirt until his wife speaks up.

“Say, ‘Daddy, I got a new shirt,’” his wife says to their daughter. Her husband takes a look and is stunned into silence.

Some of the most hilarious reactions are kids learning about their new siblings. Sometimes, their responses elicit laughter, as is the case of the Mertlich family, whose son learns he’s getting another sister — his third — instead of the brother he clearly wants. 

"I hate girls," he rants. "Every time it's girls, girls, girls, girls."

Gender reveals go both ways for kids. Watch this girl start crying when she learns she's going to have a brother.

On the opposite end of the spectrum is this little girl who giggles in pure delight after getting an affirmative answer to her question: "You're having a baby in your tummy right now?” 

As if she hasn't captured your heart by that point, she then tells her mom, "I can't thank you enough."
