It is the latest fad when it comes to event organizing - expecting parents gather their friend and relatives to show everyone the gender of the family member they will be welcoming in the very near future.
Colored balloons, color themed cakes, games and piñatas - they are all in play!
Some couples go all out for the grand reveal and why wouldn’t they - the entire fad has given birth to a world wide business model, where professional people take care of everything for you, so that you can be as surprised about the news as everyone else!
Don’t get us wrong, having a lavish party to learn your baby’s gender is a good idea.
But recently we have been surprised by the amount of parents-to-be who decide to take things on the down low for their baby's gender reveal.
A small cake, a few of their closest relatives, everyone in the comfort of their home; what more can you possibly want?
Still, there are some couples who decide to think outside the box and think of a new, unique and adorable way to tell their closest people the gender of the newest addition to the family.
This couple deliver a new twist on a gender reveal party as they await the answer from their dog dressed up in either pink or blue.
Check it out!
The guys took their poodle, gave it a fresh new haircut and dyed the tufts of fur on its head, paws and tail to match the baby’s gender.
With their family members and friends gathered in their backyard, mom- and dad-to-be call out their four-legged baby to come outside.
The fluffy pooch takes its sweet time to get there, building up the anticipation.
Drumroll, please… With an excitement that matches the rest of the crowd, the poodle comes running to its owners, to reveal its pink-colored do.
It’s a girl!
Guests scream, whoop and clap at the sight of the dashing pup, while the poor thing gets even more excited.
Too bad it doesn’t understand that all that noise isn’t because it was a good doggy, but because in a few short months, there will be another, much smaller baby that will take up all of mom and dad’s attention.
It doesn’t matter really, as long as it stays in the family!
This baby gender reveal was left up in the air - after an hilarious mix-up by a balloon shop.
Happy couple Joe and Leela Krummel, together 9 years, gathered friends and family at their home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, to find out if they were expecting a boy or girl.
A simple reveal had been planned - opening a box of balloons which would then pop out revealing pink for a girl or blue for a boy.
However the bemused pair were greeted by a bunch of multi-colored balloons leaving them baffled.
Joe said, "Nobody at the party knew the gender, including us.
Before opening the box we were nervous because the store didn't seem to understand the concept of blue for boy, pink for girl, but they reassured us it would be done properly.
But when we saw the multi-colored balloons we were so disappointed, not only because 30 people were staring at us in confusion but because we couldn't find the card in the bottom that had the gender written on it."
Apparently, the shop that made the gender reveal prop thought that they were supposed to HIDE the card with the baby’s gender in a secret compartment at the bottom, thinking that is the whole point.
They are definitely NOT getting a good review for this!
