Parenting is an experience nothing can truly prepare you for. In the video below, one expectant mother and father did endless research before their baby was due in order to prepare them for parenthood, but find themselves remarkably unprepared for the hardships of raising a child. The two budding parents are actually actors hired by California-based Munchkin baby products for a commercial that originally aired in July  2015. 

The commercial shows the transformation of a family before and after a baby enters their life. The message of the commercial is clear — no matter how much you prepare, life will always find a way to throw curve balls at you. But these unexpected experiences are entirely normal, and many couples go through changes in their relationship and daily life whenever a new baby arrives.
