This couple played ‘Egg roulette’ to find out if they were having a boy or a girl

Gender reveal parties are always exciting and fun, but this couple went above and beyond to make sure they were genuinely surprised to learn their baby’s gender. Nakita Sanders and Michael Shipman turned their own reveal into a game of “egg roulette” and, in watching the video, it looks like a super fun way to play out that very special moment.

So here’s how the game worked: Eggs were dyed either blue or pink. All but one were hard boiled. So the couple had to crack eggs on their forehead until they found the one that broke easily. If the egg that split open was dyed blue — well, they were having a boy! If it was pink — a girl!

Little did they know, the dad-to-be’s sister had a surprise in store for them. See how the game unfolded in the video below:

Shipman’s sister decided to have an extra bit of fun and add another element of surprise. So, despite the fact that the pink egg cracked, the couple is actually going to have a little baby boy. This only further proves that you never know what you’re going to get with a game of egg roulette!

As far as what the parents-to-be thought of the sister’s prank, “It definitely made everything even more exciting,” Sanders told Inside Edition. “His sister Ashley was the only one who knew what gender the baby was.”

The pair decided to make the gender reveal extra special after suffering from two miscarriages within two months. And boy, was the added element of surprise just what this couple needed to make the moment extra special or what?!

Inside Edition reports that the game originated on a segment of Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show”:

If it’s good enough for the stars, it’s good enough for these expecting parents, right? Will you be trying this out as an egg-cellent gender reveal game option? We just couldn’t help ourselves!

Congratulations to the couple on their baby boy!
