    The "Maury" Show Asked People To Share How They Told Their "Baby Daddy" They Were Going To Be A Father, And These Are The Best Replies

    "We'd been trying and when it finally happened, it just seemed unreal." πŸ’•

    ~Sigh.~ I almost never get on Facebook because there is always some mess going on. However, during a little downtime, I decided to click the little blue icon, and the first thing that popped up was Maury asking, "How did you tell your baby daddy he was going to be a father?"

    There was no way I could log off without scrolling through a few replies. Since it's Maury, I expected messy, cringeworthy stories about deadbeat dads, but the chain was full of heartwarming responses. From couples who had been trying for years to surprise babes that made their hearts grow, the stories were undeniably wholesome. Here are some of the most-liked replies:

    I told my husband I got this crazy high bill and I didn't know why When he went to look at it, it was a letter I wrote saying See you in May Daddy We now have an 8-year-old

    Sent him a picture of the test because we were just friends at the time and told him he had the choice of being their or not And he chose to stay and we ended up having another child together
