Firefighter couple's unique gender reveal

Many parents opt for balloons in a box or a gender reveal cake, however volunteer firefighters Chandra Hollinger and Brad Williams were never going to stick with convention for their gender reveal.

Due with their second child together in August, the chief and assistant chief of the Wayne Township Volunteer Fire Department employed a fire truck and hose to announce the sex of their baby to family, friends and the wider community in Columbus, Indiana.

Perched with their three-year-old son atop a fire engine, the video shows the family anticipating the stream of water, followed by the big reveal. 

The fire department posted the video to its Facebook page with the caption, "Wayne township will be welcoming a little girl to the dept in August! We are so excited!!!!"

Brad brings two other children - a boy and a girl - to the blended family, who are all delighted to be expecting a baby sister.
Fox 59 reports that "Chandra is the first active female firefighter to become pregnant in their department".
Krystle Mitchell was invited to photograph the event and says this gender reveal was "the coolest".
