The gender reveal trend doesn’t seem like it’s dying down any time soon, proven by a Kansas mother who had the most epic reaction to finding out she’s finally having a baby girl.
On Sunday, Kansas City blogger Egreis Gjergjani posted videos from her gender reveal party, including one that shows the moment she and her husband, Jeremy, cut into a cake to find pink frosting.
Gjergjani, a mother of twos boys ages 1 and 3, was holding her eldest son, George, as a piece of the gender reveal cake was placed into her hand. Once she sees the color of the frosting, she gasps, screams, and quickly places her son on the floor.
Clearly overwhelmed with emotion, Gjergjani falls to the floor and cries.
When someone asks if she’s happy or sad, Gjergjani says in disbelief, “I thought it was gonna be a boy.”
The video quickly went viral and had been viewed more than 750,000 times as of Thursday.
Happy with their “two amazing sons,” Gjergjani and her husband hadn’t planned on having more children and that her third pregnancy came as a complete surprise, she told The Huffington Post.
“Since I’ve had two boys so far, I genuinely did not think I would have a girl,” she said. “I even started a children’s couture line, Itty Bitty Toes, that specializes in handmade dresses for little girls. It was my way of experiencing what having a little girl would be like.”
Now, she’ll have a “mini-me” to dress in her designs, she said.
Gjergjani initially thought the gender reveal would come in the form of balloons – another popular method. But, her best friend tricked her, and the balloons turned out to be both pink and blue.
Gjergjani, who is originally from Albania, is due in June and said the pregnancy is a “blessing.”
“To be able to carry a child is a blessing, she said, adding, “That initial discovery of your child’s gender is an amazing feeling. It doesn’t matter if it is boy or girl, just that initial moment of knowing what you’re going to have makes it all so real.”
