A woman giving birth received unusual but amazing encouragement from her husband.
A video of the support he offered has gone viral, being viewed more than 2 million times and shared more than 53,000 times.
In the video, Jasmin Caver’s husband shows his wife a serious of printed pages with supportive messages.
“Do you remember when we first met?”
“you’ll be the most amazing Mother our Daughter could ever ask for”
As a father-to-be, he even tossed in a “dad joke.”
“What do you call a bear with no teeth? A gummy bear!”
The messages also refer to a previous pregnancy loss.
Fox 5 DC refers to the nearly-born baby as a rainbow baby, a term for a baby born following a prior miscarriage, stillborn, or other neonatal death.
