A Dalton serviceman learned the gender of his new baby in a special way Friday.

Navy Construction Mechanic Second Class Petty Officer Cody Watson is deployed overseas in Spain. He has been gone for a little over two months.

His wife, Courtney, is currently expecting their second child and is due in August.

Cody found out Courtney was pregnant before he was deployed. 

Courtney shared the video of the reveal with Channel 3. She said she has kept the gender a secret for the past six weeks.

She added that they are not yet sure if Cody will get to come home for his son's birth.

"We're unsure if my husband will be back in time for the birth; it's going to be a close call."

Congratulations, Cody and Courtney!
