We’ve all seen gender reveals and the crazy reactions and “side effects” of them, if you will, but I’m pretty sure you haven’t seen something like this before.
This Kansas City mom is currently going viral (like she thought she would) due to her extreme reaction after finding out the gender of the child she’s currently pregnant with.
The mother, whose real name is Egreis Gjergjani, has two sons, one of them aged 3, and the other aged 1. So, you can probably imagine her reaction when she got pregnant for the third time… with a daughter.
As expected, the reactions were… extreme.
This video that she posted on her Instagram @thestilettomeup is has been viewed almost a million times, and it has been blowing up all over social media.
To say that this mom completely freaked out when she found out that she was pregnant with a girl would be quite the understatement…
She told The Huffington Post she and her husband weren’t planning to have any more children after their “two amazing sons,” and this third pregnancy was a total surprise.
“Since I’ve had two boys so far, I genuinely did not think I would have a girl,” the mom said. “I even started a children’s couture line, Itty Bitty Toes, that specializes in handmade dresses for little girls. It was my way of experiencing what having a little girl would be like.”
She claimed it was “an unbelievable feeling,” to soon have a “mini me” that she could dress up in designs.
She also posted two other videos on her Instagram. One is the moment before the big reveal and the other is a prank played by her best friend @linerss55, where she attempts to show the gender reveal through balloons, but the balloons were both blue and pink, which led the mother to think that she has twins.
“My best friend is evil lol,” the mom wrote in the video caption.
Egreis is due to give birth to her daughter in June. She said she’s been touched by the kind comments from strangers who watched the big reveal video on her Instagram.
“So many of them have shared tears of joy with me,” she said. “That’s the beauty of humanity. To be able to relate to another human being, without ever knowing them, simply because you can feel the happiness through a video.”
She has enjoyed watching the video and seeing her son George’s reaction. “He knows mommy is having a baby but had no idea really what was going on,” she explained. “He just thought we were celebrating something with cake … I laugh when I see George’s face the entire time. He’s just so confused, wondering what is wrong with the cake!”
Ultimately, Egreis says the source of her enormous joy is very simple “To be able to carry a child is a blessing, she said, adding, “That initial discovery of your child’s gender is an amazing feeling. It doesn’t matter if it is boy or girl, just that initial moment of knowing what you’re going to have makes it all so real.”
We’re excited for Egreis giving birth to a beautiful daughter just as much as she seemed to be. Are you? Let us know in the comments!
