(Scroll down for video) A woman enlisted the help of police officers to reveal to her husband that she was pregnant.

Jarred and Nikki Wright of Texas, were pulled over by Hurst police officers.

One officer told Jarred that he was pulled over for driving with a child, but without a child seat in the back.

A confused Jarred looked to the seat and told the officer that he did not have a child in the car.

The officer replied: “Are you sure?”

Jarred said that he did not have his wallet or license on him so all he was thinking about is how much this ticket will cost him.

The officer then pointed to his wife Nikki, who was in the front passenger seat. She was holding the positive pregnancy test.

“We have a child in the car without a car seat,” Nikki told her husband.

The officers then handed the delighted father to be a gift bag that contained a small teddy bear that read “dad see you on your birthday.” Nikki then told her husband that she was due on the day of his birthday.

The gift bag also had a small shirt that read: “I love my amazing dad.”

Jarred laughed and was delighted with the surprise.

Nikki came up with the plan of using the officers to surprise her husband after a previous encounter he had with these officers.

Jarred served a tour in Afghanistan, and has been battling post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety since his return.

During an episode, he called a crisis hotline, and four Hurst police officers came to his home to support him. He became particularly close with Officer Todd Colichia.

In his GoFundMe named “A Veteran’s Search for Stability,” Jarred wrote: “I’ve been struggling with my psychological disorders; being admitted to an inpatient hospital twice within the last 6 months and numerous Emergency Room visits due to panic and anxiety attacks. I, actually, met the officers in the video during a very traumatic panic episode and ever since he’s become a great advocate for my family and I.”

Nikki Wright received the news that she was pregnant while her husband was in the hospital last month.

Knowing that he needed some happiness, she contacted the officer who helped with the surprise announcement.

“I was honored, on the one hand, to even allow myself to be a part of it because it’s a huge moment in anyone’s life,” Officer Colichia said.
