Just a week after finding out they were having a baby, Britt Harris' husband Chris, was killed by an improvised explosive device (IED) while on tour in Afghanistan.

Britt knew how close Chris was to his unit, referring to them as his "brothers" so she decided to let them reveal the gender of baby Harris!

She shipped them confetti poppers and the 82nd unit were the first to know what the gender of their brother's baby was going to be.

WELCOME THE NEWEST FAMILY MEMBER OF THE 82nd!!!!! Christian Michelle Harris πŸ’“πŸ’—πŸ’–πŸ’˜πŸ’πŸ’žπŸ’•. Chris left me my little miracle princess
