Ever since gender reveals became popular, they’ve been customized for different families. Some are over-the-top. Some surprise family and friends with the announcement of multiple babies. Others have been gender reveal do-overs to honor their children’s gender identities. Foster parents Dan and Charlette Fontaine from Manitoba, Canada, took to TikTok to share the uniquely special gender reveal of their family’s newest addition.
In the video, the couple is wearing black, Harry Potter-themed t-shirts that hint at the contents of the black balloon Charlette is holding. Dan’s shirt says, “She’s a keeper,” and Charlette’s tee states, “She’s a catch.”
“I wonder what it is,” Charlette ponders when suddenly a bubbly, blonde, bespectacled tween wearing a shirt much like the “expectant” parents rushes into the room and pops the balloon. Pink confetti pours out of the balloon, and the young girl yells, “It’s a 12-year-old girl.”
The girl, whose name is Bianca, holds a sign reading, “It’s a girl, a 12-year-old girl” in pink lettering. Her shirt announces that she is “The Chosen One.”
“Adoption Day,” Charlette announced on the TikTok video. “We finally got to adoption [sic] our beautiful foster daughter after 1240days in care!”
