Becoming a big brother or big sister can be filled with excitement. It can also be filled with fear, disappointment, and maybe a bit of downright hysteria.
This much was true for a pair of siblings who recently found out the gender of their soon-to-be sibling and had completely opposite reactions. It was definitely a moment filled with emotion, but the result was also pretty funny.
The hilarious moment was captured on film in Marion, Iowa, during the pair’s parents’ gender reveal party. You can hear the parents ask the kids if they are ready to find out the new baby’s gender and letting them know that if it’s a girl, the confetti about to burst out of a tube will be pink.
If it’s blue, that means it’s a boy.
They seem pretty well prepared, but when the confetti comes out pink, one sibling is pretty joyous while the other couldn’t be more upset. It makes our hearts break a tiny bit — and somehow chuckle at the same time. As most parents who have found out the gender of their gestating little one know, it can be tough on older siblings who have different expectations and hopes for who their new sibling turns out to be.
Still, it’s the first lesson in becoming an older brother or sister, really. Check out the video to find out who was pleased and who was not so pumped about this new baby’s gender reveal.
