All the way from Afghanistan, members of the 82nd prepped confetti canons and began to record.

“My boy Harris, we’re gonna do it for him, find out what kind of baby he is going to have,” a soldier says in the video.

Then, two of the Airborne step back and fire the confetti.

In a message to CBS North Carolina, Brittany said Chris left her a “little miracle princess.”

“WELCOME THE NEWEST FAMILY MEMBER OF THE 82nd!!!!! Christian Michelle Harris 💓💗💖💘💝💞💕,” she wrote.
