Confident Husband Hurls Ball For Gender Reveal, Then Freaks Out When Balloon Starts Moving

by Jess Butler
Jess is a curly-haired Jersey girl who adores penguins and watches the worst reality shows on TV.

Here at LittleThings, we see a ton of gender reveal videos. Parents like to get creative with these special events, using cakes, colors, powder, and even balloons in order to surprise their friends and family.

This dad-to-be and his family decided to tie a balloon to a lacrosse net. The plan was to hurl a ball at it and pop it, revealing the baby’s gender inside. However, things didn’t work out as planned.

In the video below, posted on March 30, 2017, future dad Sean prepares for his first shot at the hanging balloon in the distance. Everyone on the field whips out their cameras and gets ready for the big moment as well.

He hurls at the balloon with great force, but is unsuccessful.

Good thing he has a few more lacrosse balls waiting for him on the grass.

He walks back, grabs one, and hurls again. Unfortunately, the balloon is still perfectly intact. He sighs and returns for his third try as someone yells, “Change plays!” from behind him.

He uses all of his strength and aim for this next shot. With a loud crash, the ball smacks against the balloon, but it doesn’t pop.

Suddenly, just as the dad-to-be’s muscles relax after the throw, he realizes something is wrong.

The large balloon gently floats up into the sky without any warning. The future dad jumps into action and immediately starts running toward it.

Although this gender reveal method doesn’t work out in the end, mom-to-be Kristen saves the day with a clever idea.
