In Oregon, Jesse and Melissa Meek uploaded a pregnancy announcement video inspired by the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song and it has gone viral. On April 5th, the Meeks posted their rap to YouTube and now it has garnered over 1.6 million views.

Melissa said, “It was completely unexpected. Like, that was the last thing we thought would happen, that it would blow up to what it had, or what it has.” According to NBC News, the video was shot with a cell phone and they put it up as a fun way to tell distant family and friends about their family’s newest addition.

“So we said let’s do a song, or a rap, think of something to do. And I just started playing around with some words and the Fresh Prince tune kept coming to mind and then Jesse said he was doing the same thing and the same tune was coming to his mind,” said Melissa.
