Couple surprise wedding guests with baby gender reveal

Everyone says your wedding day should be the most special day of your life – but what about when find out you’re having a baby? Or, better yet, when you find out the sex of the baby?

Well, one couple decided to combine two of the happiest days of their lives, by doing a spectacular gender reveal on their wedding day, surrounded by family and friends.

Newly weds Katie, 32, and Benjamin Gayton, 34, were 17 weeks pregnant when they tied the knot – just two days after going for a private ultrasound scan in Southport, Merseyside, which allowed them to find out the sex of their baby early.

So, hours after saying ‘I do,’ while surrounded by all their nearest and dearest, the happy couple decided it was the perfect time to announce that a little boy would be joining their newly formed family.

Confetti cannons showered blue paper over the happy couple as they shared their first dance as husband and wife, announcing they were expecting a baby boy.

“My guests knew I was pregnant but nobody knew we were going to do a gender reveal apart from my mum and dad who pulled the cannons over us,” Katie, from Bispham in Blackpool said.

“We were both so excited throughout the day, and when it came to our first dance, we were both shaking with excitement.

“All the way through the dance, we kept asking each other when it was going to happen and if it was going to be pink or blue.”

Emotional video footage captured the moment Katie, Benjamin and their families found out they were expecting a little boy.

“We both had tears in our eyes when the cannons finally popped. It was so wonderful, we both just felt overwhelmed, excited and full of joy and happiness,” Katie added.

“I’m over the moon to be having a boy, both of us can’t wait!”




It was Benjamin’s idea to reveal the gender of their first baby during their first dance to Time of Our Lives by James Blunt.

“Come on, we’re having a boy,” Benjamin, who runs his own landscaping business, said. “I’m very happy – I got a beautiful wife and a beautiful boy in one day.”

Katie and Benjamin are expecting their baby boy in March 2022.
