Couples often cut a cake or use a confetti cannon in the presence of close friends and family to announce whether they are expecting a baby boy or a girl, but one Dubai couple went all out as their gender reveal was projected on the tallest building in the world.
YouTubers Asala Maleh and Anas Marwah joined the rest of the world in finding out they were soon to have a son when “It’s a boy” appeared on the Downtown Dubai tower. The grand finale came after an elaborate pink and blue-hued digital video ran up and down the Burj, taking this originally American tradition to new heights.
A post on Anas’ Instagram feed – which has 2.4million followers – a week earlier showed a sign held by divers at the Dubai Aquarium with the hashtag #BiggestBabyRevealEver. This was the teaser for the main event, with the final video posted on the influencers YouTube channel, Anasala family, getting more than 6.5million views in 24 hours.
The cute couple, who were filmed standing on a nearby bridge overlooking the Dubai Fountains as the drama unfolded were joined by their two-year-old daughter Mila. Their excitement and joy was evident to all – the doctors had passed the result straight to the video makers to ensure the social media stars were completely surprised.
Now we can’t wait for the baby’s birth. One thing is for sure, the Kardashians could take lessons on over-the-top announcements from this famous family.
