An elderly woman has a surprised expression on her face.

When you’re about to reveal your baby’s gender to your 102-year-old grandma, you want to make the moment as memorable as possible. So, this mom-to-be came up with a unique way to announce the news! In the sweetest video ever, an elderly woman named Nancy found out that she was going to be a great-grandmother. Her excitement was too precious! She couldn’t wait to meet her great-grandchild.

“I’ve got to live for that,” she said, wistfully. “I’ve got to live.”

Although it would still be a while before Nancy’s granddaughter gave birth, there was one more surprise in store for the elderly woman. The mom-to-be had come up with an adorable way to reveal her baby’s gender to the 102-year old grandma. She handed Nancy a scratch-off card which would let her know if the new child was going to be a boy or a girl.

It took Grandma a little while to scratch off enough of the card to reveal the baby’s gender. In fact, a family member had to step in and finish it off for her. However, once the much-anticipated word was uncovered, the elderly woman was overcome with joy.

“Oh, it’s a boy!” she exclaimed.
