Gender reveal parties have become the newest pregnancy tradition where either the mom, dad, or family and friends get to guess and find out the gender of the baby to come.
Just a few weeks ago, I got to take part in my very first gender reveal party. My good friends are expecting a baby and we had been begging her for weeks to tell us if they were having a girl or a boy.
She didn’t crack, so to say that I was eager for them to finally pop their giant black balloons and let the pink or blue confetti fly is an understatement.
Keeping the baby’s gender a secret from family and friends must be difficult, but one couple had even more secrets hidden that they would reveal during their gender reveal party.
The mom held the black balloon over her head as the dad prepared to pop it. A woman could be heard in the background cheering for a girl.
The balloon popped and blue confetti surrounded the couple as cheers echoed through the room.
“One second,” the father said, “Everybody who voted girl, you’re going to have another chance.”
Their family seemed a little confused. What did they mean that they were going to have another chance?
“I’m having twins!” the mother explained. More cheers ensue. No one had any clue that the couple was keeping that big of a secret from them
One friend asks, “Are you serious?!” as the dad passes out little confetti containers.
The mini confetti poppers that everyone else gets to pop represent “baby B”
“Could be a girl or could be a boy. We don’t know,” the dad says.
Once they decided to keep the twins secret, the mom had apparently “been telling people at the bank and Kroger.”
So, everyone took the top off of the poppers to find out what the second baby would be.
On the count of three, everyone hit the bottom of their container and blue confetti flew everywhere! Another boy!
Congratulations to the happy couple as they continue to expand their family two babies at a time.
