Soldiers help with fallen comrade's baby gender reveal

The wife of a fallen soldier finds out her baby's gender with a special video all the way from Afghanistan.

U.S. Army Specialist Christopher Harris served with the 82nd Airborne Division.

His wife told him they were expecting while Facetiming.

One week later, he was killed by an IED.

While she was grieving she also thought about the soldiers overseas who served with Chris.

When it came time to find out the gender of their baby she asked them if they'd like to be involved.

Fellow soldiers used cannons filled with confetti for the big surprise.

The couple's baby girl is expected to arrive in March.

Mom plans to name the baby girl Christian in honor of her father.
