Big Sister Surprise: Parents Make Baby Announcment To Daughter (VIDEO)

A small gift prepped one little girl for what's arguably the biggest news of her young life: She's going to be a big sister!

The young girl's parents unveiled the special surprise by placing a neatly folded pastel purple shirt on their daughter's lap.

"You have to read what it says," Dad says.

"Can I sound it out?" she asks.

The parents eagerly, yet patiently wait for their daughter to decipher the life-changing four words: "I'm the big sister." And after a couple of minutes (2:40), their daughter starts to register what the big news really means.

Eventually she figures it out and runs into her mom's arms, ecstatic about the family's new addition.

Her advice? "I think we should get a bigger house for a baby."

Ah, kids.
