Marine Cpl. Brandon Crespo was sadly deployed during the midst of his wife’s pregnancy, and sometimes the two were only able to speak once a month. Despite this, his wife, Francis, was attending all of her doctor’s appointments and keeping her mind and body as healthy as possible to be able to manage on her own.
Their son, Noah, was born June 13th, 2018, and, while Brandon couldn’t be there in person for the birth, he was able to be on the phone with Francis through her labor. However, his six-month deployment soon came to an end, and he was able to come home to meet his newborn son!
Francis waited for her husband to arrive, holding baby Noah in her arms with a sign that read, “Out of my way! I meet my daddy today!” Brandon broke down in tears before he even reached the two, taking them both in his arms for a sweet embrace.
The family posted the heartwarming homecoming video for everyone to enjoy but was shocked when she realized the video amassed over three million views on YouTube.
