EMGISVILLE, Pa. -- A soldier surprised his wife at the hospital during the birth of their child, according to a report from WPMT.

“He was like, ‘I wish I could be there’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, me too,” Jena Kunkel said.

U.S. Army Soldier Joseph Kunkel was closer than she thought.

“I actually had told them that I needed to see the anesthesiologist again because the pain was just completely unbearable at that point,” Jena recalled.

Kunkel's military uniform was covered up with blue hospital scrubs and he was wearing a mask over his mouth. After a few moments, Jena realized it was him.

Three hours later, she gave birth to Ryleigh Mae.
