Navy wife hides pregnancy from Sailor husband until he returns from deployment

Petty Officer 1st Class Chris Daugherty’s wife Natasha found out that she was pregnant with their fourth child shortly after he deployed for six months on board the USS Carl Vinson. Rather than sharing the news through text or email, Natasha decided to wait until Chris returned home to reveal their newest edition. To keep Chris in the dark when Natasha sent photos, she would make sure her belly wasn’t in the frame or she would position something or one of the kids in front of it. Even though her emotions and guilt nearly compelled her to tell him before he returned, Natasha held out until their reunion and his reaction was well worth it.
