In the olden days people didn’t get to know the gender of their baby until the day they were born. Parents just prepared for a little bundle of joy to enter the world and cost them a shit ton of money. Then technology gave us the option to find out if it’s going to be a boy or a girl. But finding out in the doctor’s office didn’t seem exciting enough. Thus, the ‘gender reveal party’ was born. Here are some people who had a hell of a time finding out about their baby.
No better way to get started than with the biggest gender reveal fail in history. So big, in fact, that it burned across 47,000 acres and cost a whopping $8.2 million. With a baby on the way, not an ideal time to pay $220,000 in restitution. Lots of kids find out they were ‘happy accidents’ but finding out the party in your honor burned down a chunk of Arizona? Damn, that’s quite the reputation in utero.
The answer that got away
This couple let the gender slip right through their fingers. Popping a balloon to find out the sex of the baby sounds like a good idea. If it’s inside. And the balloon doesn’t have helium in it.
Never trust the pizza guy to deliver important news. This Domino’s order was supposed to send pizzas that spelled out the gender of the baby. Except they came out looking like your average perfectly golden creations.
It’s a girl! Except not really.
This couple had a lovely gender reveal where nothing went wrong… in the moment. When they went to confirm the gender, they found out it was a boy instead of a girl.
Instead of biting into the cupcake to discover what the baby was going to be, this future father ate the whole damned thing.
Well the good news is the reveal worked, but it’s not the picturesque moment this soon-to-be mom wanted. It looks like smurf decided to smoke bomb the thing.
This cake is fired
I guess that’s a lot of pressure to put on a baked good.
This couple was supposed to open the box and balloons were going to fly out letting them know what type of little joy they are going to bring into the world. They got an empty ass box instead.
The idea was to pull the string and have pink or blue balloons pour down over the family and let them know if their little girl was going to have a brother or sister. Instead, this pregnant lady got a nice clunk on the head.
Homemade choas cannon
A homemade shooting device doesn’t sound like the best thing to bring around a pregnant lady. When the cannon didn’t work, someone had to kick it. To be fair, that worked. See the resulting injury below.
Oh and in case you’re wondering about that last one…
