After having two sisters, four daughters and two granddaughters, an Illinois grandfather is elated to find out the newest member of his family is a boy.
James Patrick of Breese burst into tears when he walked into his daughter’s hospital room, and discovering his latest grandchild, baby Landry James, was wearing a t-shirt that read: “FYI: I’m a boy!”
In fact, the surprise was compounded since Patrick met his grandson on his 49th birthday.
Elbe explained their entire family was in on the prank.
"The problem was our daughter, who is 4, already knew so we had to talk her in to keeping it a secret,” she said. “I just can’t believe we pulled it off.”
