Let's just say this dad was a little overwhelmed at the news he was finally having a son!
A dad of four daughters was completely overwhelmed by the news he'd finally be getting a son; so much so, he fainted!
In a YouTube video that has garnered more than 450,000 views, we see family gathered 'round for a gender reveal. Apparently the couple's doctor had written down the sex of their fifth child inside a sealed envelope, which was given to the baker of a gender reveal cake.
Now, the crowd cheers and whoops as the expecting mom and dad prepare to cut into the cake. Pink and blue balloons add to the festive mood, as do the calls of "Boy! Boy!"
You can see the father is reluctant to find out his fate. But finally, the couple is ready to make the first cut, which will reveal pink or blue inside. And...it's blue!
Everyone is jumping up and down, screaming wildly. So is dad...until he falls on the floor! The assemblage keeps cheering and yelling, but mom gets down on the ground to make sure her husband has survived the shock of finding out he is going to be the father of a boy.
For a few seconds it's unclear if he is alright. But eventually, mom gets up and it seems the overwhelmed daddy is going to make it!
As the parents of three girls, this video really gave my hubby and me a laugh. I think he'd pretty much react the same way if we ever had a son. At this point we are almost convinced we are incapable of making boys together! That being said, we love our girls and also joke we wouldn't know what to do with a son anyway!
