This is the kinda thing you only see when you live on the Gulf Coast.
A Florida couple decided to host a gender reveal party for their soon-to-be 10th child & they decided to include the family pet as part of the theatrics.
Since this is the Gulf Coast we're talking about, the family pet has to be unique.
Stacie Childs-Wright and husband Chad Wright let their pet alligator, Amos, show the world the sex of their unborn baby, which will be the couple’s 10th child.
A video from Tampa station Fox 13, courtesy of Childs-Wright, shows a barefoot Wright dangling a black balloon from a pole, urging the gator to puncture it with his jaws.
The provocation results in a quick chomp and a subsequent explosion of pink powder. While Amos — who has been a member of the family since 2000, per Fox 13 — seems unbothered, Wright appears to be disappointed that a little girl is on the way.
A tickled Childs-Wright exclaims “I told you!” to her husband, who, according to Fox 13, is a Florida Wildlife Control “nuisance wildlife trapper.”
Gender reveal parties don’t often feature deadly reptiles, but they’ve become ever more creative in the Instagram age.
Colored lasagnas, fire trucks spraying tinted water and “Game of Thrones”-inspired dragon eggs have all gotten the pink/blue treatment. In notably dramatic fashion, one North Carolina dad-to-be even jumped out of a plane to find out the sex of his unborn baby. (It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a girl!)
