When my sister was pregnant, she came up with a pretty cool idea to reveal the gender – to herself as well as the rest of us. She had the sonographer write down her baby’s gender on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope. Then she delivered the envelope to her favourite bakery and asked them to make her a cupcake with pink or blue inside, according to whatever was inside that envelope. When it was ready they picked up the box and brought it home for a reveal in front of family and friends.
It was a girl!
Ah, there’s nothing better than a dramatic reveal, especially when everyone’s watching with anticipation, and ready to cheer wildly with you. I thought my sister’s idea was pretty epic but when you look around the internet, the lengths some couples go to are AMAZING.
Check out these gender reveal videos. You might need a box of tissues, it’s hard not to get caught up in the excitement …
