So...I invented this card trick to share the exciting news to my parents - my wife and I are expecting our third!

Unfortunately, my parents are pretty terrible as far as spectators go. They typically want to point out everything wrong with a trick and are generally sick of seeing magic. Plus, they aren't very demonstrative - so like I said, not great spectators. :) But this time, you can see their minds can't quite grasp how I did the trick. They both don't get fooled often - too crafty - but I got them this time. And the ending was especially fun. Haha

Congrats...that was pretty cool! Your parents reactions, knowing that they might be pretty jaded by now...were priceless!

OMG this is the best way to use magic and announce such a thing!
Loved the trick as well.
Congrats on the baby! :)

Thanks a bunch guys! Yeah, it would have been cool to do this for our FIRST baby. Haha. But yeah, they played nice for this video - so that was good. I liked my Dad's double take when I named his card. He was definitely surprised...got him good when I showed the rest were blank. Hehe.
