If you haven’t seen this hilarious gender reveal prank, let us set the scene for you. After waiting until their baby made its grand debut, mom Daniella Moneta and her husband tricked their friends and fam in the hospital waiting room with this super clever gender reveal.

Pink is for girls and blue is for boys, right? Forget what you think you know about gender color codes—and that’s exactly what Moneta showed off in their now-viral gender reveal video on Instagram.

In this cute clip, the new dad unzips his sweatshirt to reveal a blue shirt. If you think that means the couple just had a boy—think again. Moneta unzips his sweatshirt all the way to reveal the BIG surprise, with a message in white that reads, “It’s a girl!”

Moneta and her husband planned their tricky reveal long before the birth. The new mama told POPSUGAR, “I knew once they saw a blue or pink shirt they would know right away if it was a boy or girl, so I figured, why not trick them a little? I made two shirts because my husband and I didn’t know what we were having, either.”

Tricky, tricky—and happy all around, too.
