TOPEKA, Kan. (CNN NEWSOURCE) — Video of a heartwarming homecoming is going viral.
The video has millions of views.
“He can’t surprise me ever. That was the first time that that had ever panned out for him,” said Cydney Cooper about her husband, Skyler Cooper.
But this time his surprise worked out just perfectly.
Cydney Cooper got the flu just a week before she gave birth to her twin daughters. Doctors told her she had to have an emergency C-section.
She wasn’t expecting her husband Skyler, a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army, to come home from Kuwait until the spring.
Skyler never anticipated it would go viral. In fact, Skyler only posted the video online so that his mom could see the surprise.
But his battalion commander pulled a few strings.
“It was not a certain thing until they came and found me one afternoon and said you need to be down here with your bags packed in two hours,” said Skyler.
The twins, Emma and Kyla and their two boys Corbett and Leighton are all reunited.
