GOOD NEWS Soldier Surprises Family, Meets Newborn Son at Anaheim Ducks Game
A woman who thought she was at an Anaheim Ducks game to video chat with her soldier husband got an amazing surprise when the video feed cut out and her husband walked in!
Sgt. First Class Robert Vandenberg Jr. reunited with his family and met his newborn son for the first time after being deployed overseas for 10 months.
His wife Patricia Vandenberg said today on “Fox and Friends” that she was excited to video chat with her husband at the game, but was then disappointed when the feed on the Ducks’ scoreboard cut out.
Then – her husband walked into the arena!
The sergeant described meeting his newborn son in person for the first time.
“It was incredible; I’ve been waiting to meet this guy for the last two-and-a-half months. It was hard not being there for his birth, but the hospital was really kind about letting me FaceTime in, so I got to see some of the birth,” he said.
Vandenberg described being home as a very heartwarming experience.
