When gender reveal parties go wrong: Dad fails to hide how VERY disappointed he is to learn his partner is expecting a second baby girl
- A gender reveal party hit a hiccup after the father-to-be’s unexpected reaction
- Video shows man appearing visibly disappointed at the gender of his new baby
- Couple appear to already have a daughter and he wanted a son to pair with her
A father hoping to have a son failed to hold back his disappointed reaction when his girlfriend revealed she was expecting a girl.
The gender reveal party turned from joyous to awkward when the mother burst a black balloon as a crowd of excited friends looked on
The balloon released a flurry of smaller pink balloons and streamers into the sky indicating she was pregnant with a girl.
The father-to-be appeared to verbalise his disappointment at the gender before throwing the remains of the larger balloon on the ground in frustration.
TikTok user mattyhb92 shared the clip (pictured) on Monday which has been viewed by more than 450,000 people
The upcoming baby appeared to be the couple’s second child, and second daughter, as the mother was holding a young girl in her arms.
Viewers of the video posted on TikTok were divided over the man’s response to missing out on a son to play catch with in the backyard.
‘His reaction is priceless,’ one wrote.
‘That will be cool when his kid sees this party video in a few years,’ another wrote sarcastically.
‘Be thankful you can have kids,’ added a third.

‘It’s alright, maybe you can share your leggings with her when she’s older,’ a fourth wrote.
Gender reveal parties have grown in popularity in recent years, despite the inventor of the concept later admitted she regretted it.
They tend to feature a central item which is then opened or set-off to reveal a baby’s gender – usually using the colours pink or blue.
Such items can include balloons, cakes, smoke bombs, and gifts of varying extravagance.
