More often than not, parents want to know the gender of their baby before it’s born. They like to prepare its bedroom with the appropriate gifts and pillows, but they also like to have another thing to celebrate. A gender reveal feels like a milestone, so when you decide to wait until the baby is born to learn about the baby’s gender, you’re leaving yourself up for some wild responses.
That’s what happened when Kennedy Zarour and his wife Natalie were expecting their sixth child. You’d think they would be used to everything by now, but something new happened this time that made the excitement all the more real. Wait until you see how he responds.
Thanks to a video shared with USA Today, the internet has been watching along as a nurse asks Kennedy if he is finally ready to find out the gender of their baby. They’d been keeping it a secret for so long, and while his wife was having her c-section, he finally allowed it to happen.
And guess what? Kennedy, a father to five girls, learned that he was finally having a boy. “Oh my God! I love it!” he screams, standing from his chair and lifting his arms in triumph. I don’t think anything could have stopped this father from screaming any harder, because it was finally happening. Images of his growing boy were popping through his head.
“Babe, we did it!” he yells, jumping around the room. He’s covering his mouth and pacing a little bit, not really sure what he should be doing. What would you do if you found out the exact thing that you wanted to happen was happening right now? I don’t blame him for reacting the way that he was.
This excited father from New Jersey was asked later about the situation and, according to Mirror.couUk, he responded by saying, “It wasn’t a case of being excited. We were both stunned.” But Kennedy, I’ve got to say, judging from your reaction, I think it may have been a bit of both.
The video has now gotten thousands of views. In it, you can hear the wife happy about the news, but it might be mostly from seeing how happy her husband is. I’m sure it’s got something to do with the fact of the gender reveal too, but let’s not pretend that watching her husband react this way wouldn’t be even more hilarious to see in person.
The doctor had to ask Kennedy to calm down in the video, but it didn’t stop him from screaming in his full mask and surgical garb, sharing his excitement with the world. I guess when you really want something, you can’t stop what comes out of your mouth about it.
So I guess that goes to show that if you have enough babies, the better chance you have of getting the gender that you’re after.
How do you feel about this man’s response? Would you do it too, if you were finding out what he did?
