Not Another Sister?! Gender Reveal Doesn’t Go To Plan When Big Brother Has A Tantrum

The trend for revealing whether you’re having a boy or girl by using a pink or blue ‘gender reveal’ cake went a little wrong for one family…

When an American couple baked a cake and told their three children they’d know the gender of their soon-to-arrive sibling by the colour of the inside, they all seemed very excited.

But when their son, Gunner, cut into the cake, he couldn’t hold back the tears and tantrum when he saw that the sponge was bright pink and he would once again, be getting another sister to add to the two he already had.

His sisters, Paisley and Harper, were thrilled with the results, but much to his dad’s amusement, who continued to film despite Gunner’s reaction, he couldn’t hide his true feelings, saying, ‘‘It’s a girl! It’s another girl! I hate girls! Every time it’s girl, girl, girl, girl!

‘I want to leave this house and never come back. I want to be by myself.’

The video has already gone viral on YouTube, getting over 600,000 views since it was posted last week.

Watch the full clip below.
