The looks of shock, joy and excitement were all captured in the video, which is played out in slow-motion in the YouTube video. Even the family dog was overjoyed with the news of a new addition to the family.

Ciera is now 18 weeks pregnant. Though the couple has not yet learned the gender of their baby, Woods said they are considering filming a surprise gender reveal when they do find out.

Baby Woods is due in April of 2016.
