Stuff that matters

A dad was left rolling around the floor in pain after a gender reveal party trick went very wrong.

In a video shared to YouTube by Gemma Bayliffe Newby, her partner and their little girl can be seen sitting in their living room as they wait to announce the sex of their baby.

“What do you think the baby is? Shall we find out?” Gemma asked their daughter, to which she guessed she was going to have a younger sister.

The little girl excitedly jumps around as she points out that the confetti and balloons will be pink for a girl and blue for a boy.

“Are you ready?” the dad asks while she waits patiently.

Whilst the girls begin to count down from three, Gemma’s partner prepares to let off the cannon shooter.

But unfortunately, despite his efforts, the cannon doesn’t go off on time and Gemma releases the blue balloons to reveal that they are having a little boy.

Suddenly, the cannon explodes – just not into the air as planned.

Instead, it shoots confetti directly into his groin.

Hilarious footage shows him doubled over before curling up on the floor holding his crotch.

Captioning the video, which she uploaded on February 8, Gemma wrote: “Everything that could go wrong definitely did.”

Since being posted, the video has been viewed more than 15,000 times online.
