WHETHER they own up to it or not, most mums and dads do have a preference over their new baby's gender – but this is usually all forgotten as soon as they see that all-important sonogram.
However, the same can't be said for this dad who had an absolutely brutal reaction when he found out he's expecting another little girl.
Keen to share the excitement with their nearest and dearest, the new parents had the moment they found out their baby's sex captured on film.
In a TikTok video which has been viewed by over 550,000 people, the dad is seen holding the black balloon covered in question marks while his pregnant partner balances her daughter on her hip.
Together the couple pricked the balloon at the same moment to reveal several pink mini balloons and confetti inside – which confirmed they were having a girl.
But while the mum and guests were thrilled by the news, the dad couldn't hide his disappointment and appears to mutter an expletive.
He then throws the confetti to the ground and looks visibly upset as his mates have a chuckle at his expense.
Although the footage was shared on TikTok in jest, people were left outraged by his response.
"Don't worry," one fumed. "Your daughter won't want you either."
"His daughter is going to be heartbroken when she sees this when she is older," another added. "Whatever biased opinions should disappear when you are having children."
And while others fumed that he "didn't deserve" the baby, a third wrote: "I hope his daughter doesn’t see this when she’s older. He is lucky to even have kids."
That said, not everyone was so critical and others insisted that it's natural to have a gender preference.
"He will obviously love his second daughter," another wrote. "He was just hoping for a son."
"Chill people," one replied. "He is allowed to be disappointed. I'm sure his baby girl will be loved plenty. Geez. Parents are allowed to be disappointed."
