Model Answer:
The exciting news that I heard over phone was the birth news of my nephew. My mother called me on my cell phone when I was away from my home-town and that’s one of the most exciting news I have ever got in my life.

I was in the second year in my university and because of that I was away from home. One day my mother called and gave me this happy news. I had exam ahead of me and after getting the news I was so happy and thrilled that I forgot everything and came to my hometown at that very night to see the newborn baby. I have two sisters and I am the youngest son of my parents. My sisters got married and first when I was in my A level. I heard that my sister was pregnant and would have a baby soon.

Having a baby at our home was a much desired dream of ours and I often fantasized to have a beautiful baby at our home. So we were counting days for the baby to come to this world and for enlighten our house. At the last moment of my sister’s pregnancy, she became very ill and some complexities appeared as the doctors reported. Naturally we were very anxious for the mother and the baby who is yet to come. When I got the call from my mom that my sister has become the mother of a beautiful baby and both are fine, I was in one hand very animated and on the other hand relieved from the tension that I was going through for the last few days.
