Any parents-to-be, whether they like to admit it or not, have a burning curiosity as to what sex their child will be.

Parents are often eager to find out so that they can begin preparations...



A lot of parents like to know the sex of their child before it is born in order for them to prepare for the arrival. Some people like to decide on a name before birth, to buy clothes for their baby, and to decorate a room for their child.

But for those who decide that they want to find out?



The gender reveal isn't just a case of finding out the sex anymore.

A party has to be thrown, and it has to be a huge deal.

What ever happened to just finding out and leaving it there?

Long gone are the days when people would find out their baby's sex at a scan and just going home happy as Larry.

The most popular method of gender reveal?



Most parents prefer to use confetti or smoke cannons for the dramatic reveal of their unborn child.

While many love the idea of gender reveals, there has been some controversy surrounding them.

One gender reveal party gone wrong actually caused widespread wildfires in California last year. And, more recently, a soon-to-be dad died when a gender reveal device exploded.

Now experts have said enough is enough...

Additionally, many people disagree with the idea of "gender reveals" altogether.

Aside from being dangerous, some have said it's totally archaic and wrong.

As it's "choosing" the baby's gender.

And now, another video of a gender reveal has shown a different reason they can be damaging.

As one father-to-be looks visibly disappointed at the revelation he'd be having a daughter.

This type of sexism has no place in a family.

Particularly regarding a defenseless, unborn baby.
