AN EPIC PLAN
Weddings are exquisite, comprising deep-rooted rituals in the couple's cultural and traditional backgrounds. Often, friends and family members shower the newlyweds with countless gifts.
Also, the bride and groom exchange heartfelt presents that signify their love and affection. While the gifts can be tangible or intangible, it's the sentiment that counts the most, and a groom knew this all too well.
Jeff Althoff was excited to become a married man. For his special day in 2017, he had an epic plan for his lovely bride and the other guests. However, he decided to wait for the perfect moment to unveil it.
ALMOST REVEALING THE SURPRISE
The intelligent guy gathered his groomsmen before the wedding ceremony, and for a moment, it felt as if he was letting them in on his secret plan. But after Jeff's announcement, his friends' curiosity piqued even more.
"She's [the bride] not going to know until she sees this video later on. Are you guys ready to know it? Well, you can't yet," exclaimed Jeff.
EXPANDING THEIR FAMILY OF TWO
Jeff danced the night away with his stunning bride, Jenna Althoff, with the wedding celebrations in full swing. As the couple swayed around the room, Jenna didn't know what her now-husband had in store for her.
After their romantic dance episode, Jeff took the microphone, giving everyone the impression that he was about to deliver a romantic speech at the reception. He took full advantage of the moment and complimented his bride on her beauty.
Then, Jeff revealed the enormous surprise: He announced: "No, it's not hunting or fishing related, it's everything you want [in a surprise]. Would you agree with me that the last few hours have been the best few hours as a family of two?"
THE BRIDE'S PRICELESS REACTION
Jenna nodded her head in affirmation but was still clueless about the epic surprise. Jeff declared:
"Well, I'm proud to announce that we've now become a family of three."
Soon afterward, a woman entered the room, holding a puppy. When Jenna spotted the cute little pup, she was taken aback. For a moment, she thought her husband had adopted a child behind her back and thought it best to reveal the secret at their reception.
But the moment Jenna held the lab puppy in her arms, her motherly instincts kicked in, and she couldn't control her emotions. They were now a family of three, with the cutest little addition one could ask for.
AN ADORABLE FAMILY OF THREE
The momentous occasion was captured in a short clip and shared on YouTube, where it racked up over four million views. Netizens from far and wide poured in their loving comments for Jenna, Jeff, and their cuddly baby.
