My mother is one of eleven children (her family was very Catholic!). She has 8 sisters and only 2 brothers, with her first brother being the 9th child! Which means my grandfather had to wait 9 kids before he got a boy. Something tells me that if there were video cameras around during this time when his first son was finally born his reaction would have been similar to this man’s.
Julio Pena is a New York father of 4 girls who got the surprise of his life during a gender reveal party for his 5th child. I know we all just really want a healthy baby, but you have to appreciate any parent wanting a boy after already having 4 girls!
Julio and his wife got ready to cut the cake and as soon as the knife went in his wife’s reaction told everyone that they were in for a change, but it was Julio’s reaction that was priceless, as he promptly fainted! I guess he might have hoped for a boy but he really wasn’t prepared to actually find out he was having one!
Julio told ABC news “I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. For a boy,” he said, adding that after he fell, “they had to sit me down in the sofa and I couldn’t say anything. I was like in shock.”Kari Pena, Julio’s wife, said her was already a bit shaky before he even began to cut the cake. “He was so nervous. He was like … he was dying for a boy forever.”
So cute! Check out Julio’s hilarious reaction in the video below.
