A Tennessee couple was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as they gathered their friends and family together for their baby’s gender reveal party. All was going according to plan, right up until the much-anticipated moment. Then things took a painful turn for the worse.

The parents-to-be awaited the countdown cue from guests to launch air cannons that would reveal the sex of their child. While the expectant mom, Micah Toombs, struggles to get hers to explode, her partner, Parker Stuard, has a whole other slew of problems at hand. Or rather, at the groin.

Just as Stuard lets his canon loose, it backfires and hits him in the groin. Keeled over from the force of it, cheers, laughter and surprise erupt as the crowd learns a baby boy is on the way.

“I reckon one child will be enough,” the soon-to-be dad jokes on Facebook. To say it was a moment the couple will never forget is an understatement.
