I’m Totally Confused By This Reddit Gender Reveal Idea
Gender reveals can be so freakin’ adorable, and such is the case with this cute couple who posted this to Reddit where they said:
My wife and I wanted to be surprised as we found out the gender of our first child. So we had out photographers set up a shoot and here’s how it turned out!
Now, I’m going to assume, I THINK?!?, that this means they wanted the gender of their baby to be a secret? Reddit stop confusing me! It’s so funny because it’s like my brain just can’t compute this, or as my co-writer Carrie Murphy said:
society is so linked to pink for girls and blue for boys that we can’t process it when someone says they’re having a purple.
Am I the only person not completely getting this or did any of you have the same reaction? I keep sort of anting to hope this means they are planning on giving birth to Grimace or something.
I love gender reveals, but I never had one with any of my kids, other than calling people and telling them what I was having. Because back when I was birthin’ babies no one was all cute and doing these adorable photo shoots like parents do these days. It sort of makes me want to do a do-over and go back in time and have one of those cakes that are either all pink or all blue on the inside.
Ugh, it’s all just so cute and totally beats my boring phone calls. Congrats to the couple in the photograph who are planning on having a purple!
