Whether or not you come from a large family, the excitement that comes with another baby on the way is still palpable. Parents go around making announcements, buying toys, supplies, and furniture — it’s a happy time for everyone!

But in the Howell family, the latest pregnancy is perhaps the most exciting one. There are 24 grandchildren, exactly 12 boys and 12 girls. This new baby will break the tie between the number of boys and girls among the grandchildren. Everyone is anxious to know the gender of the little one. And what better way to reveal the news than with an epic gender reveal party!

We’ve seen some pretty elaborate reveals before. Many involve slicing cake and seeing the color of the filling, while others go all out with props like fireworks! But this one is so adorable and simple that any expecting parent you know could totally pull this off!

First, the video starts with family members being asked what they think the baby’s gender is. Then, the whole family huddles underneath a pink and blue piñata with a huge question mark on it. All the children hold onto strings and pull. Now notice the color of the objects inside…

Did you guess the baby’s gender correctly? Let us know in the comments!
