Mazel tov! to Jalene and Lincoln Taylor of North Salt Lake, who are expecting a baby in May — and whose rapping announcement of that news has become a viral video.
It was a long road getting there, as the couple dealt with infertility issues, they told the blog Today Moms. Jalene went through fertility treatments, and one pregnancy that ended in a miscarriage, before learning that she was again pregnant.
"Infertility is a very difficult, emotional roller coaster. One of the things that helped keep our spirits up was thinking of fun ideas on how to announce our pregnancy when it finally happened," Jalene Taylor said, according to Today Moms.
The video originally was meant just for family and friends, but its popularity spread as it received (so far) nearly a quarter-million hits since it was posted eight days ago.
"Even people we haven’t seen since high school reached out to us and told us how awesome it was," Taylor said. "We felt really loved."
