I’m going to give a disclaimer first. I think baby announcements and the culture around weddings and gender stuff is so overrated.
Now that I have my negativity out of the way, I can contradict myself and say that I find it overrated until I see a super cute video of a couple finding out if they are having a boy or a girl, or a viral proposal that makes me weep.
So basically unless you do it big, don’t do it at all. Man, I’m a ray of sunshine today aren’t I?
This video comes from a vlogger that calls himself Dude Dad, who is a self proclaimed actor turned father that posts his adventures in parenting online.
I have to commend the dedication to this gender reveal, as I’m pretty sure it took days and a few friends help.
The video below shows a rube goldberg machine that spans the entire house, and ends with confetti covering the couple in either blue or pink. (I won’t spoil it)
I think it’s cute and it’s definitely worth a watch, it also reminds me of a friend of mine that posted her gender reveal online by popping a balloon with coloured confetti inside.
At the moment when the balloon bursts, the video goes black and white. Cheeky buggers, but worth a mention as well.
Check it out!
