BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Nadine Ducote ran the Mississippi Gulf Coast full marathon from Pass Christian all the way to Biloxi.

When she neared the finish line at MGM Park, Nadine revealed a big surprise to her husband - she's expecting. 

"I was clueless, actually, so I got it on video. I was like, 'Go mommy' and then I don't know what I said," Jordan Ducote noted. "I'm excited. We've been looking forward to this for a little while, so I was shocked and had no idea."

Married for more than 10 years, the couple has been trying for another child.

"I thought running a marathon and then letting my entire family know - especially my husband know - that we are pregnant....after a triumphant race is just great."

Baby Ducote is expected to arrive in late July or early August.
