A Yaxley family have become internet stars after coming up with a unique way to announce a new addition.

Having seen people online announcing engagements and weddings, Ashley Cook, 32, and Sandie Matthews, 35, decided to make a light-hearted video to announce Sandie’s pregnancy.

With the help of their son and star of the video Tobias, aged four, along with a few well-chosen costumes and props the trio set to work creating the short film which has now been viewed more than 6,500 times on Facebook and Youtube.

Ashley, who is a sales rep for UPS (United Parcel Service) and Sandie, who works at H&M at Serpentine Green, said the reaction is beyond what they could have imagined.

Ashley added: “People seem to have liked it! We were expecting maybe a few likes and views we never expected for it to reach the thousands.

“We got the idea from seeing some video’s announcing people’s wedding/engagements online and we thought it would be fun to do one to announce our pregnancy.

“I have worked as an extra before and as an actor on some short films so had a bit of knowledge on how to pull together a few scenes.”
