A family’s surprise and tears of joy were captured in a now-viral moment when the gender of their seventh child was revealed. Sarah Molitor, 35, a mom to six boys from Central Washington State, learned last month that she’s due to give birth to her first baby girl, reports Fox News.
“We are honestly just so thrilled to be having another baby,” Molitor wrote to Fox News Digital. “We fully thought and expected it to be another boy.”
“My heart has been very set on the thought of seven boys and the uniqueness of that,” Molitor continued. “When the pink confetti shot out, we were just in pure shock. Absolutely couldn’t believe it.”
Molitor said her family got to take a look at their newest member’s ultrasound image after the reveal. Her sister had enclosed the image in an envelope.
When Molitor saw the pink confetti, the expectant mother jumped and fell to her knees.
“After the whole reveal, I jokingly asked everyone, ‘Why did anyone let me hold Griffy?’” Molitor told Fox News Digital. “None of us expected the surprise.”
“In my shock, [I] definitely surprised [Griffy], too, I’m sure,” she continued. “Thankfully, I caught myself and he was totally happy playing with confetti within seconds of it all.”
The clip has been liked by more than 2.3 million Instagram users at the time of publication. Molitor is due to deliver her first baby girl in March 2023.
