As if baby showers weren't enough, gender reveals are the newest craze to pump up your friends and family about their new baby entering this world. Everyone you know gets invited over for an entire night that leads up to one single moment: the extravagant reveal of their soon to be new baby.
There are no lengths that are too far for most of these families. I'm talking huge balloons, big layered cakes and sometimes even excessive amounts of confetti. With so much pressure leading up to this one moment, there is a lot of potential for something to go terribly wrong.
Yes, there are some good ones, but let's look at all the fails because there are way more than you think. We all get to have a good laugh at the expense of a family so exuberantly waiting for such a big announcement.
From fireworks to alligators to forest fires, it's about to get very revealing.
Being extra is a lifestyle.
They had high expectations.
This will be my gender reveal — make a volcano erupt in pink or blue. Thanks https://t.co/lzjp03SPzA— gwen (@gwen)1538582558.0
Painting the skies pink.
I love to watch them fail.

Another explosion fail...
Going out with a bang.People from up to three miles away called the police at the sound of the explosion, fearing what had caused it. The couple received a ticket for setting off an explosive without a permit. This baby boy is going to cost them way more than they thought.
What the buck?!Here's a full on rodeo reveal. Hopefully, no bulls were harmed in the making of this gender reveal.
Baby, it's a firework!
Leaving with some battle scars.The fireworks backfired and turned on the guests at the party. You can hear screaming, some in fear, others in excitement, it's kind of hard to tell. The scars that their friends got from this party will be a permanent reminder of this fail.
This how you do a gender reveal 😂 https://t.co/huytklBnU6— Rudy (@Rudy)1539014593.0

Straight to the face, part 2:Another smashing reveal for all to see, and for some to cringe.
Let's hope she's okay...
See you later.
The bigger the truck, the bigger the fail.This could have been such a success. But boy, it went downhill fast.
An awkward congratulations.
Kids will be kids.
You can feel the disappointment here.I mean how could the balloon people mess this up! I definitely feel their sadness, but I am also still laughing.
When mayo comes out if the ballon instead of confettie...This is what you CALL... GENDER REVEAL EPIC FAIL....😂… https://t.co/WrUhC9N835— Alex 🦧🤓🥜 (@Alex 🦧🤓🥜)1538964150.0
This one's a mouthful.
It's a prank.This family had quite a surprise indeed. At first, they open up their little box to find a football inside, causing everyone to rejoice over the baby being a boy. But then, the mom-to-be keeps digging in the box to find out that the slip of paper inside reveals the baby is actually a girl.
That could have gone better...
A little too eager, there.This baby is already causing a whole lot of headaches.
Popped under pressure.
Fly away baby!This one cracks me up. I guess they'll never know!
Kick it to the man.
