Parents surprise their children with an early Christmas present, it’s not what you would expect though.

Courtney Solstad, from Texas adopted a new baby boy, Nathan, this month. Her other children knew they were getting a baby, but didn’t know when or whether it would be a boy or a girl.

“The girls knew nothing about Nathan until this,” Solstad wrote on Facebook Saturday with a video capturing the surprise. “We met them at the door and told them that we had been out Christmas shopping and got them a gift to share…”

Their reaction is priceless! As they meet their new baby brother one of the girls can be heard saying “I’m gonna wet my pants!”
