One mother shared the heartwarming moment she revealed her pregnancy news.
Jaimie Harris kept her pregnancy a secret during the pandemic and shares the good news with her dad – she has twins.
The 41-year-old found out that she had two young children four months before the birth. The mirror reports.
But she made the decision to keep it quiet as she was concerned about her father Michael’s health.
She gave birth to twins Betty Vera Hemson and Bertie Harris Hemson, and told her 64-year-old father on an emotional video call.

The mother revealed that she had given birth to a boy and first showed him Bertie.
But when she waved the camera to Betty, Michael realized they were twins and the happy grandpa burst into tears.
The newcomers make Jaimie of Sudbury, Suffolk, a mother of seven who gave birth to baby Reggie just a year earlier.
She said, “I had Reggie in January 2020 so we didn’t know we were pregnant as I was still feeding him.
“I then found out that they were twins, but because of my father’s poor health, I decided not to tell him because I didn’t want to incriminate him. If Dad didn’t know, no one would.”
“I found out that it was twins on my scan in August – it was a huge shock since Reggie was only seven months old and all of my children had cesarean sections, so I was very concerned too.
“There’s so much rubbish going on with Covid that we wanted to share a little happiness with friends and family for a change.
“I’m so pleased with the way we did our reveal and the comments were amazing – so glad we did.”
School cook Jaimie and her partner Craig now have five children together, including Henry and Teddy Hemson, eight and seven.
Jaimie also has two children from a previous marriage, Mia and Harry Warburton, 19 and 16.
“The whole family has met the twins and they all get along great,” said Jaimie, who gave birth to them on January 11th at Colchester Hospital.
