Gender reveal parties are one of the hottest trends among today’s expectant parents. Parents gather a group of friends and family together and reveal the baby's gender so that everyone present can celebrate the biological sex of the upcoming birth. Most often, the gender reveal parties include sealed boxes filled with balloons according to the baby gender i.e. pink balloons are used if the baby is a girl and blue balloons are used if the baby is a boy. Starting a family is certainly one of the most special moments in people's lives. Parents are often very excited about the sex of their baby, so they decide to make a celebration out of it by organizing this kind of gender reveal parties to share baby's gender with close family and friends.

This baby gender reveal was left up in the air - after an hilarious mix-up by a balloon shop. Happy couple Joe and Leela Krummel, together 9 years, gathered friends and family at their home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, to find out if they were expecting a boy or girl. A simple reveal had been planned - opening a box of balloons which would then pop out revealing pink for a girl or blue for a boy. However the bemused pair were greeted by a bunch of multi-colored balloons leaving them baffled.

Joe said, "Nobody at the party knew the gender, including us. Before opening the box we were nervous because the store didn't seem to understand the concept of blue for boy, pink for girl, but they reassured us it would be done properly. But when we saw the multi-colored balloons we were so disappointed, not only because 30 people were staring at us in confusion but because we couldn't find the card in the bottom that had the gender written on it."

Apparently, the shop that made the gender reveal prop thought that they were supposed to HIDE the card with the baby’s gender in a secret compartment at the bottom, thinking that is the whole point. They are definitely NOT getting a good review for this! Another gender reveal was hilariously ruined by the people who were supposed to prepare the secret for everyone present when a bakery filled a vanilla cake with white frosting instead of the appropriate color for the gender. The funny thing is that neither of the parents actually have an idea what their baby's gender is!

Love them or hate them, "gender" reveals have become part of the course for expecting parents. Sometimes, they can be pretty epic and sometimes they go hilariously wrong. These three kids discover the gender of the impending arrival of their newest sibling, but someone isn't too thrilled with the results. Have a look at this baby revealing party where three children need to cut a cake in order to find out the gender of the newest addition to the family. The big sister is obviously anxious to get a little sister, after dealing with two younger brothers, one of which is still a toddler. The other big brother is clearly excited about having another brother.
