“The couple’s daughters were born at 33 weeks because Cydney had the flu,” according to CBS News.
“1 year of crazy, 1000s of miles, 1 solo pregnancy and delivery, 48392 Skype calls, some superheros, a few plane rides, 12 NICU days, tons of help from family and friends, and many tears later…. A soldier came home,” Cydney Cooper stated on Facebook.
Making it a double surprise, Cooper also surprised his two older sons, Leighton and Corbett at home.
