This is the hilarious moment a grandma-to-be didn’t get the hidden message in her family’s word association game, despite shouting her daughter-in-law is pregnant multiple times.

In the amusing clip, Drew Crenwelge is playing “Bowl of Nouns” with his mother, Tammy Ramsey, acting out the words on pieces of paper before returning them to the bowl.

After understanding Drew’s actions for the likes of guacamole and yelling out potential answers such as ‘Trump’ and ‘Beto’, Tammy, 53, then watched on as Drew pointed to his wife Carla.

When his mom said 29-year-old Carla’s name, Drew, 30, nodded and then made a bump shaped action on his belly, causing his mother to say, “pregnant.”

With his mother a little confused by the seemingly right answer of pregnant, Drew returned the piece of paper to bowl, picked up another and again made the same action sequence.

An even-more-confused Tammy said, “Carla. Pregnant,” and Drew again nodded any put the piece of paper back in the bowl, as if it were the right answer.

“What?!” Tammy said, perplexed, but still without getting the message.

Then, on third attempt in his family home, in Austin, Texas, Drew went through the same actions, causing the grandmother-to-be to say, “Carla’s pregnant,” and finally get the hint.


A stunned Tammy screamed, rose to her feet and headed across the living room to give her daughter-in-law a huge hug on September 22, 2019.

The couple are expecting their first baby, and this is also the first time Tammy will be a grandmother.

Drew planned the surprise so that he could be on his mom’s team and that his brother, Cody, who was visiting from Washington State, could capture the moment on camera.

Carla said: “It played out perfectly – starting with the morning leading up to the reveal as Tammy and Cody drove over.

“Cody said they briefly talked about when Drew and I may start trying for kids, but Tammy said she didn’t think it’d be for a while and that she didn’t want to add pressure.


“As it was building up to the charades round, the three of us who knew what was going to happen were getting excited, but still competed as if there was nothing special going on so as not to make Tammy think any different.

“Then during the charades round that Drew acted it out, I was getting red and had to look away so as not to clue Tammy in on what was going on.

“Drew had to adapt and continue acting it out so that she’d eventually figure it out, which was hilarious.

“Couldn’t have been any happier and glad it worked out so well – this will be a memory and video we share forever.

“We hope that everyone who watches it gets a glimpse into the happiness and joy that we felt in the moment and the time leading up to this moment, and hope that it can inspire others or give them a reason to laugh.”
