This holiday season, one family received possibly the greatest gift of all–a new family member.

Courtney Solstad and her husband adopted their new baby boy Nathan just in time for Christmas, so they decided to surprise their three girls by placing him under the Christmas tree.


"The girls knew nothing about Nathan until this." Courtney captioned her Facebook video on Saturday. "We met them at the door and told them that we had been out Christmas shopping and got them a gift to share..."

The girls, of course, had the reactions you'd expect: Tears streamed down one's face, the younger one jumped for joy and the other sister stood in shock.

"I'm gonna wet my pants," says one of them in the video. "Don't do that," says mom.


And let's be real here, we probably all would too if we found a cute baby under our trees!

Santa will definitely have a hard time topping this gift! We wish the Solstad family nothing but the best with their new little bundle of joy!
