A Brazilian soccer got news that his wife was pregnant less than one week before he was killed in a plane crash.

A video circulated on social media shows Taigo da Rocha Vieira Alves, 22, cheering after his teammates helped deliver the good news to him last Wednesday, CNN reports.

He was known as “Tiaguinho.” He was among the 71 people killed when a chartered plane carrying the Chapecoense soccer team crashed into the side of a mountain in Colombia Tuesday.

“His wife’s pregnancy is a small miracle. It is a small part of Tiaguinho that stays behind with us. We are thankful,” Gilmara Marins, Tiaguinho’s cousin, told CNN.
The couple would have celebrated their one-year anniversary in December.
“He always wanted to be a young father … so I am happy that he got to have that last joy,” Marins said.
Watch the moment Tiaguinho learned he was about to be a father below.
