If you search for gender reveal videos on YouTube, you’re bound to find countless videos of families learning the gender of their baby.

Some will make you smile, some will make you laugh out loud, and then there are some like this gender reveal from 2014 that will leave you in tears.

A Texas couple was excited to learn if they were having a boy or a girl.

In the video, which was shared online by Tiniki Thomas, a couple eagerly awaited the moment they could open their box.

To their knowledge, there was something inside the box that indicated whether they were having a boy or a girl.

Friends and family counted down and then they took the lid off the box.

When the pair removed the lid from the box there were screams, but they weren’t what you would have expected.

Everyone was confused when three white balloons appeared.

Three white balloons along with a note floated up from inside the box.

The room fell silent except for a few people who urged the couple to read the note.

The note read, “These three balloons represent Jaden, Jordan and nephew David, which we all know are running around in heaven. Even though they seem so far apart, they will always have a special place in our heart.”

The balloons represented three miscarriages the family recently suffered.

The couple had recently experienced two miscarriages late in their pregnancy and another member of the family had also experienced a miscarriage.

The balloons represented those babies.

It was an extremely emotional moment, but it wasn’t over yet. Once everyone collected themselves, a balloon version of the mother-to-be was brought out.

The couple still didn’t know if they were having a boy or a girl.

Everyone at the party counted down again … and … pop! The couple burst the balloon mama’s belly and pink balloons and confetti went everywhere.

This time the party erupted into cheers and everyone surrounded the parents-to-be with hugs.
