OMG. This is so adorable, you aren't going to be able to stand it. Now that the news is out that she's expecting baby number two with husband Tye Strickland, I guess there was really no need to keep the details of her pregnancy under wraps. Bachelor alum Melissa Rycroft has revealed her baby's gender -- but just wait until you hear how she broke the news to her family.
Instead of showing them the ultrasound photo or simply flat out telling them whether she's expecting a boy or a girl -- Melissa decided to get a bit more creative and spill the beans in a very sweet way.
She held a small gathering and had cupcakes prepared for the group to enjoy with the color blue or pink inside to reveal the baby's sex. And then she had her 2-year-old daughter, Ava, bite into the first cupcake -- which was a lovely shade of BLUE!
Yep -- Melissa is having a boy. (One of each. You gotta love it.) And while she admits being so excited, it sounds like Tye is even more over the moon about raising a son. She told Us Weekly:
Tye, he's such a guy's guy, so personally I'm really happy he gets to do all his boy stuff. It's so funny the first thing out of his mouth was, 'I feel so much responsibility now!' I was like, 'Um have you not felt it the past two and a half years?' I guess there's something to be said about the same sex parent taking the bulk of [responsibility].
She went on to talk about how she teaches Ava ballet and all kinds of girly stuff and added: "Now it's kind of his turn to teach somebody how to throw and catch a ball and go outside and find worms."
But let's get back to that gender reveal -- aren't you absolutely loving how Melissa made sure Ava was such a huge part of announcing her baby sibling's sex to the rest of the family? It just goes to show what a great mom she is and how important her little girl is to her. Aww. I know she thinks Tye is the one who will enjoy doing all the "guy" stuff with their new edition -- but something tells me she's going to have the "boy mom" thing down in no time. (Oh, Melissa -- you just wait ... you're going to fall in love!)
How did you announce the sex of your baby?
