Gender reveals can be an exciting moment for the parents-to-be and their families…and sometimes they’re not.
That’s what happens in this hilarious video, where the future granny isn’t even trying to hide the fact she would’ve definitely preferred a grandson.
I love my two boys, but I still dream of having a little girl Carrie-Anne Sanca, the 33-year-old mother-to-be from Wales, wanted her mother Margaret to experience the same surprise and excitement she felt when she found out the sex of her little bun-in-the-oven, so she took to Pinterest and filled a balloon with confetti for her mom to pop.
“Boy or girl?” Sanca asks with anticipation behind the camera as her mother reaches up to the balloon with a pin. The balloon bursts and pink confetti flies into the older woman’s lap.
“F*cking girl,” she says laden with disappointment.
She continues with her filter-free reaction tidying up the confetti in her lap into a neat little pile. “Ohhh Split ar**,” she says, which Sanca can only respond with an amused “Mum!”—the expression is a derogatory term for women in UK slang.
“Oh nevermind,” she continues, but then attempts to recover. “As long as it’s alright. As long as it’s lovely.”
