The desire to procreate and have a family is hard-wired into our genes.
After all, procreation is the primary means for a species to survive as the older generation dies out and any evolutionary changes may manifest themselves into the following generations.

Of course, there are modern couples who just don’t like the idea of having children or are simply unable to produce biological children. And that’s actually fine especially with how overpopulated the world has become.
But for the majority of parents, nothing beats the nervousness and anticipation of finally welcoming a new member of the family. The excitement is not limited to the parents alone but to the extended family as well, particularly the grandparents but also encompassing the various aunts and uncles and even cousins, most especially in those cultures where family ties are more close-knit compared to Western families.
One of the benefits of modern medical technology is ultrasound.This amazing machine not only scans for any possible birth defects that the baby may have but can also reveal the baby’s gender while in the womb. Before the advent of the ultrasound, people were left to guess what the baby’s gender was and would often rely on astrology, superstition, or other portents to guess at the baby’s gender before it came out.
Of course, it was like a coin toss with a 50-50 chance of success which may be why these traditions have persisted.
While there are parents who would prefer not to know the gender of their baby, there are those who go for those big “reveal” parties so that everyone will know if the newest member of the family will be a boy or a girl.
During one such party, an overenthusiastic grandma accidentally revealed the gender of the baby before it was time but the stupefied look on the father of the baby’s face more than makes up for that little gaffe.
The video shows everyone excitedly watching as the baby’s mother prepared a special black balloon that when popped, will spread a colored powder that will indicate the gender of the baby. However, behind her, the grandma accidentally pulls on her pop canister and out pours pink confetti, revealing the baby to be a girl.
With the cat out of the bag, so to speak, and the stupefied look on the dad’s face, the baby’s mother laughingly pops the black balloon to reveal the pink powder denoting the baby’s gender.
It was all done out of sequence but the important thing is that everyone had fun anyway.
