A stunned Marine celebrated the gender reveal of his first child alongside his military colleagues – all while deployed 13 000km away from his pregnant wife back home.

Zach Zapata, a member of United States Armed Forces, ecstatically celebrated the gender reveal of his first child after being sent a surprise box from his wife.

The deployed Marine didn't feel left out of the pregnancy. His wife, Jane Zapata, sent her husband of four years a surprise homemade gender reveal box in the form of a care package, which informed the Marine he was due to have a son.

The soon-to-be-father, who has endured a long struggle with his wife to conceive a child, can be seen sharing the build-up of anticipation alongside his colleagues, before erupting into cheers and celebrations at the announcement of a boy.

“When Janet announced her pregnancy to me, I couldn’t believe it. She prepared a little surprise announcement for me and I remember immediately thinking the struggle was finally over – we had finally received the news we’d been fighting for so long.

“Everyone in my company knew that my wife was pregnant and they were all very excited for me, even more so because they really wanted to know what the sex of the baby was going to be.

“The feeling of knowing I had so many of my people around me to share this announcement truly made it special.

“These Marines are some of the most feared men on the planet, but they have hearts of compassion and loyalty towards one another.”
