It’s always fun when arenas use the “kiss cam” to put couples on the spot during professional sporting events.
Two days before they were due to attend an Orlando Magic game, Taylor Wheaton Baily found out she was expecting her first child. She knew she had to share the good news with her husband, James Baily, in an unusual way.
“My husband has always dreamed of me telling him in a really cool way,” Taylor said. “So I thought it would be neat to get on the kiss cam.”
We’re not sure how she pulled it off, but she did it! During the game, the kiss cam cut to Taylor and James. A graphic on the bottom of the screen spilled the beans: “Congrats James! You are going to be a dad!” it said.
The look on James’ face when he reads the message is a classic! He is shocked, and immediately turns to his wife for confirmation.
“When I looked up and saw the writing at the bottom, that’s just when my jaw dropped and it was just such a whirlwind of emotions at that point,” James recalled.
They never expected their big news to go viral, but by the time they were leaving the arena their phone started blowing up!
“Shortly after it happened the messages started pouring in,” James said. “We saw you on Sports Center. We saw you on this, we saw you on that.”
What a great way to share good news with the world! Watch James’ incredible reaction in the video below, and don’t forget to share.
