Gender reveal parties for expecting parents are all the rage these days, and they’re getting more creative all the time.
This unique gender reveal method, however, not only is creative but also left the pregnant mother sobbing.
The video was originally posted on Twitter by the expecting mother’s 17-year-old daughter. Apparently, she was something of an inspiration for the unique gender reveal.
“[M]y mom is pregnant and didn’t want to know the gender unless my dad found a creative way of letting her know,” daughter Ana wrote.
In the video, a smiling pregnant woman holds what appears to be an Alexa personal assistant device above her lap as she sits on the couch.
The father is recording the video, and he can be heard saying, “This is the most special, creative way I could think of to tell you the sex of our child.”
“But I couldn’t do it without a little help.”
A voice then comes out of the device, and a spark of recognition appears on the expecting mom’s face. A smile then spreads on her face, and she collapses into tears.
“This is your father!” says the voice on Alexa. “Letting you know that she is a girl.”
The voice belongs to the woman’s late father, who passed away one year ago. The man recording the video put together clips of her dad’s voice to make the halting announcement: “She is a girl.”
“I love you. Bye-bye.”
Could it get any more touching? If your goal was to make the world cry, Dad, you succeeded.
