Koppel shows why a gender reveal in a park can be a bad idea


Discovering the gender of a baby is an exciting moment for expectant parents and today revealing the gender is even more exciting.

But for a couple, the special moment was ruined by a dog trying to eat the cake with sprinkles that represented the gender.

The viral clip, posted on TikTok by @daniwaiari, shows the couple sitting on the grass with a macaron cake in front of them.

The popular clip has been viewed five million times, but the gender is not shown as the video is cut short due to the presence of the dog. However, Dani shared another video showing the end of the clip with blue sprinkles in front of a boy.

A study conducted by a team of doctors from Harvard Medical School in Boston previously revealed that 58 percent of expectant parents learned or planned to find out the sex of the fetus before delivery.

The study also found out why expectant parents chose to find out the sex rather than waiting for a surprise at birth.

The most common factors associated with wanting to learn the gender were:

  • Accidentally getting pregnant
  • Find out the gender in a previous pregnancy
  • Not planning to breastfeed
  • Influence of sex on future pregnancy plans
  • Planning a move or renovation depends on gender
  • Specific parental sex preference

Nowadays people don’t just find out the gender and keep it to themselves, they often throw a party or do something extravagant to share the news with their loved ones. Usually they are not aware of the gender until the reveal, as the gender has been hidden in an envelope by the sonographer.

The couple can then give the envelope to a loved one to host the party. However, this does not always go according to plan. Recently, News week shared the moment when a friend “ruined” her boyfriend’s gender reveal and the awkward moment when a mom-to-be seemed disappointed by the results.

In this case, the couple was thrilled to see blue sprinkles and have since become proud parents of a healthy boy born in September.

More than 1,490 people commented on the clip, which received 495,400 likes.

One user said, “I wish I had done something so intimate instead of an expensive party.”

“Aww he wants to join your party,” said another.

Dani responded to the comment above saying, “[It] was such a cute dog too, would have loved all the petting if it wasn’t such a special moment.”

Another person said, “Honestly, this is your fault for going to a dog-friendly park.”

News week reached out to @daniwaiari for comment. We were unable to verify the details of the case.
