This Georgia Mom Had The Best Reaction To Having A Son
Dara Crouch was confident that she was having a baby girl. After all, no one in her family had given birth to a boy in 50 years. She was not expecting to break such a longstanding family tradition and had decided not to bother finding out the baby's gender. It was going to be a girl.
While most mothers-to-be are prepared for a few surprises in the delivery room, Crouch is no stranger to the delivery room. Not only was she already a mother to her three-year old daughter Neyland, but she was a labor and delivery nurse by trade and was giving birth at the hospital where she worked. She was expecting an ordinary birth to a baby girl. Four hours of labor later, the 29-year old Columbus, Georgia mom got a big surprise. She had broken a five decades-long family streak and given birth to a baby boy.
To say Crouch was completely shocked when she gave birth to a son is an understatement—and there are photos that prove it.
Crouch and her husband, Eric, had invited photographer and family friend Neely Ker-Fox into the delivery room to document the birth. Ker-Fox captured the pure bewilderment, wonder, and utter surprise on Crouch's face at the news that she had a son. Ker-Fox told Today.com that she remembered Crouch overflowing with excitement at the news: "Oh my gosh! It's a boy; I can't believe it's a boy!"
