Gender reveal parties can be silly. Why cut open a cake to see if its blue, or get a gator to bite a watermelon or whatever, in front of a dozen people when gender is just construct, dummy. Duh! Still, we can’t help but have our hearts melted when we watch this video that Twitter user Ana Young posted of her mother finding out the gender of her child. Rather than do something tacky such as the color blue or the color pink, Ana was handed a recording saying the baby’s gender. However, there was a twist: the voice on the recording was that of her late father, edited to say the baby’s gender. It’s heartbreaking, and if you love crying (and who doesn’t) you’ll love the video. Check it out below.
my mom is pregnant and didn’t want to know the gender unless my dad found a creative way of letting her know… so he put together clips of my granddad’s voice (who passed away a year ago) to announce it to her :’) 💖 pic.twitter.com/wYV2GMDHeW
