A bride-to-be and her paraplegic fiancé have captured the hearts of millions after posing for a very cheeky photo to announce their surprise pregnancy.
Although Amanda Diesen and Todd Krieg were told by doctors that it would be nearly impossible for them to conceive naturally, the two were thrilled — and shocked — to learn that they are expecting their first child together.
The couple from Ohio planned a heartwarming pregnancy photoshoot to announce the news to their family and friends, but one witty shot has taken the internet by storm.

'We found out at the beginning of December and were extremely shocked and overwhelmed. We took a test together and just about freaked out.'

Amazing surprise: Although doctors said it would be difficult for them to conceive without the help of IVF or other treatment, Amanda said the pregnancy was 'au naturel'
The expectant mom, who is 14 weeks pregnant and due in August, said she was looking at pregnancy announcements on Pinterest when she came across one of a dad holding up a sign that reads, 'I did that.'
That image inspired her to incorporate the line, 'It still works,' into their own portrait, and the end result has caused quite a stir online.
The couple's friend ended up posting the photo on Reddit, and it has earned them millions of fans.
Amanda noted that doctors told them that although it was possible for her to get pregnancy naturally, it would probably unlikely without IVF or other treatments. However, the two defied the odds and conceived 'au naturel'.

Amanda explained in the post that she was working as a therapist at the paralysis recovery center, Project Walk in Carlsbad, California, when she met her fiancé in 2015.
Todd, who is from Elyria, Ohio, became paralyzed from the chest down after suffering a dirt bike crash in October 2014. The former motocross rider visited Project Walk a year later for therapy in hopes of regaining back some function, but he also ended up meeting his future wife.
Amanda recalled how Todd called her the 'cute therapist', and while she also found him attractive, she worried about seeming unprofessional. That Halloween, Todd made his feelings known and the two became a couple.
Cracking up" Amanda gushed that they are always making each other laugh despite the fact that he is in constant pain because of his injuries

In love: 'We are blessed to have each other and are truly a perfect match,' Amanda said
When it was time for Todd to move back to Ohio in the summer of 2016, Amanda made the decision to go with him because she knew she didn't want to be in a long distance relationship.
Amanda noted she would like to get married in Orange County, California, where she grew up — and they fell in love — but now that they have a baby on the way, she admitted that she was entering the contest because they shouldn't be spending 'loads of money' on her dream wedding.
Amanda gushed that Todd is her best friend, and they are always making each other laugh despite the fact that he is in constant pain because of his injuries.
'I am so thankful I've been given the opportunity to spend my life with this man. We are blessed to have each other and are truly a perfect match,' she wrote.
