Man’s Outrage as Wife and Mother-in-Law Conceal Daughter’s Gender, Posing as Expecting a Boy


A devastated dad has revealed how the gender reveal of his child took a dark twist when he realized his wife had been lying to him.

A man joined the “Am I The A—hole” subreddit on social. media site, Reddit on Wednesday, August 9, and his post has garnered more than 9.1K upvotes and 3.7K comments in just 12 hours.

The 35-year-old father-to-be, with profile name “OP”, told the story of his wife’s truly outrageous lie

He explained: ‘During [my wife’s] first pregnancy appointments, I was on an essential business trip.
‘In my absence, my wife and her adopted mother attended the check-ups. Upon my return, she excitedly told me we were having a boy.
‘We invested emotionally and financially: a blue nursery, boy-themed items, even naming him after my late grandfather.’

The man also explains that he had a ‘tumultuous’ childhood and always ‘craved a strong, male figure’ in his life.

He said: ‘I never had that bond with my father and always envisioned having it with a son. My wife was aware of this deep-rooted desire.’

However, an off-the-cuff comment from his mother-in-law revealed the truth – they were actually having a girl, and the man’s reaction was pretty intense.
‘My wife admitted she knew from the beginning but didn’t tell me, thinking she was protecting my feelings.

‘I was devastated, feeling the weight of past hurts and fresh betrayals.’
‘In my pain, I cleared out the nursery and, in a moment I regret, told her mother she wasn’t welcome at upcoming family events, seeing her as part of the deceit.’

He added: ‘I acted out of deep-seated emotions and past traumas. I love my wife and regret my reactions.’

But other Reddit users weren’t happy with his explanation, with many pointing out this he was projecting too much onto his unborn child.

‘Our children do not exist to fix us,’ wrote one. While another added: ‘Poor kid isn’t even born yet and is already being punished for not meeting his expectations.’

While a third said: ‘He destroyed his daughter’s future room in a fit of rage because she’s failed his expectations before she’s even born.‘
