First, those in attendance were separated into "Team Girl" and "Team Boy." It's worth mentioning the latter was a bigger group.
Then, everyone took turns popping blue and pink balloons with darts. Um, it takes a while. Gah! I would have popped 'em all myself to find out the answer!
But this mama had more patience than I would have, so you may want to skip ahead to the 4:50 mark to see the big moment. It's actually the dad-to-be who uses a bow and arrow to break a larger, black balloon containing the baby's gender.
Except...he doesn't quite pop his balloon on the first try. Or the second. Or the third.
But the fourth time is the charm! And it's a...well, you'll have to watch the video to find out. But let's just say at least half of the family members in attendance were correct. Mama also declares she is so happy, especially since she already has two daughters (oops, did we give it away?).
Congrats to the Fowler family!
