Katrina Wythes's husband was deployed when she was just three months pregnant, and they were worried that he would miss the birth of his daughter.
Throughout the months, Katrina joked that she would go into labor at his homecoming and little didn't they know the true extent of those words.
Six months after his deployment, Katrina was standing in the sweltering sun waiting to be reunited with her husband again.
Her contractions started a few hours before that, while he was already on the plane. She still sent him a message that he "better hurry."
When he got off the plane, the first thing he did was to say hello to their daughter and then greeting his wife.
It was clear from the video that she was uncomfortable and told her family that they need to go. The camera then cuts to the couple sitting in the car.
Katrina smiles at the camera while her husband buckles himself in and asks: "Should we go have a baby." He starts the car and replies:
"We should go have a baby."
The next segment of the video shows Katrina in the hospital ready to give birth. Her husband captured the beautiful moment when their daughter was placed in her arms.
Katrina told Love What Matters that she was really wanted to be there when her husband stepped off the plane and was grateful for the timing.
"I was determined to be there to pick him up, so I just prayed my heart out, and begged baby girl to wait for her Daddy. Luckily, she did just that!"
In another video uploaded to YouTube soon after, the proud mother said he "made it home right in time for miss Julianna to be born. "Our hearts are so full," she said.
