Pilot Surprises Dad-To-Be With A Special Announcement On The Loud Speaker

"Well Eric...you did hit the jackpot."

"Well Eric, although you didn't strike it rich here in Las Vegas, you did hit the jackpot," the pilot for American Airlines flight 607 says in a video captured before takeoff. 

"Congratulations. You're about to be a dad," he continues, reading a note addressed to passenger Eric Sadiwnyk from his wife, Lisa. 

Prior to boarding, Today.com reports that Lisa handed crew members a note she had written to surprise her husband with news of her pregnancy. The crew passed it along to the pilot, and the rest is history.


Eric tells Today.com that the exciting announcement brought both him and his wife to tears. 

"There aren't enough Thank You's for the crew of American Airlines Flight 607 (1/13/16) with service from Las Vegas to Philadelphia," Lisa adds in her Facebook post. "You all helped me to pull this off seamlessly! I'm hoping if this video makes it around the internet a bit, I may be able to find the crew and Thank them again!"

This is definitely up there with one of the most creative pregancy announcements we've seen.
