Hope they've got something planned for the birth announcement, too! Oregon couple Melissa and Jesse Meeks are enjoying a few minutes of Internet fame this week after their out-of-the-box pregnancy announcement — using Will Smith's famous rap from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air — went viral on YouTube.
The parents-to-be recorded their take on the classic theme song in their car, changing the lyrics to fit their exciting baby news.
Sample verse: "In Happy Valley, Oregon, livin' and wed / Bought our first house and started to build our homestead / Chillin' out, maxin', and relaxin' all cool / While all thinking that our lives pretty much ruled / When our family and friends, who were up to no good / Started askin' questions about parenthood / We told one little lie, said it's not time yet / Parents said, 'We're ready for grandkids so get a move on it!'"
Melissa later raps: "I woke up in the morning 'bout 7 or 8 / And I thought to myself, 'Oh man, I'm late!' /Looked at the test, and it was finally there / The little plus sign / We're now three, not a pair."
The video was posted earlier this month, on April 5. In the days since, it has been viewed more than 3 million times.
"It was completely unexpected," Melissa told FOX 12 of the public reaction to the clip, which they shot in just five takes. "Like, that was the last thing we thought would happen, that it would blow up to what it has.""
