With gender reveal parties all the rage, we've certainly seen our fair share of reactions to the question: pink or blue? Who could forget, for example, the parents whose cardboard box opened to reveal a bunch of multi-coloured balloons. Not quite the answer they were expecting ...

While it's early days yet, and 2017 undoubtedly has other gender reveals ahead, we think it might be hard to top this next mum's dramatic reaction upon learning her third baby's sex.

Meet Egreis Gjergjani, mother of two gorgeous baby boys aged 1 and 3.


What life is about ❤️

After a few deep breaths, it's time.

And, as we're sure you'll agree, the mother-of-two's response to discovering she's having a baby girl, really takes the (gender reveal) cake.

Take a look:


And I'll end up as a meme somewhere. Fml! We're having a GIRL!!!!!

"I'll end up as a meme somewhere," the excited mama quips in her Instagram update.

Ms Gjergjan told The Huffington Post that she never thought she'd have a little girl. "I even started a children's couture line, Itty Bitty Toes, that specialises in handmade dresses for little girls. It was my way of experiencing what having a little girl would be like."

"To be able to carry a child is a blessing, Ms Gjergjan said. "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."

The mum also told The Huffington Post that she's enjoyed re-watching her little one, George's, confused expression in the clip.

"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!"

Congratulations to the family!
