There is a tradition growing in popularity these days – the gender reveal!
Couples are coming up with unique and exciting ways to unveil sex of their baby-to-be. Gender reveal parties and photos are popping up everywhere! And although gender reveals are becoming more and more elaborate, some of the simplest are the most emotional. I’ve decided to share a few of my favorites here with you. If you are looking for some of your own ideas, I put a link at the bottom to a great article on the topic.
0.1. Viral Brother Eric and his wife.
Erik Meldik, known as a YouTube celebrity prankster, was pranked himself in this adorable video. His wife* put her own twist on the common cake cutting reveal with hilarious, and truly heartwarming, results. His reaction is possibly one of the best. (I know this is said all the time, but seriously watch it until the end.)
They did a great video on the eventual birth of that baby, and the video is just as cute! Watch it here.
*I was unable to find her name. Please leave a comment if you know it!
0.2. Jamie Indiveri and her fiancé, Keith Batchelder.
Jamie Indiveri and Keith Batchelder from Navarre, Florida are expecting their first child and wanted to do something unique for their gender reveal. Since Keith is a member of the U.S. Army Special Forces, they came up with the idea of him using his marksmanship to shoot open a box in order reveal the bundle of joy the couple would be welcoming later this year.

One of Jamie’s friends got an envelope containing the child’s gender to keep it secret from the couple beforehand.
Going out into the woods they rigged the explosives to the box and Keith took aim.
He’d been training just the previous week and hit the target on his first try.
This reveal “blew up” into a debate on social media soon after. What do you think? Harmless fun or bad taste? It gets points in my book purely for uniqueness and the attention it drew.
0.3. Big Daddy has a Big Reaction
There is just something about large men being overcome with emotion that is just so watchable.
