Although the foreigners came as a complete shock to the couple’s family and friends, Daniella has since revealed that the plan has been long in the works ahead of the baby’s birth.

“I just wanted to play a little trick on our families. I knew that as soon as they saw a blue or pink shirt they would immediately know if it is a boy or girl, so I thought, why not entice them a bit?” the new mom told Popsugar. “I have two shirts because my husband and I didn’t know what we had.”

Instagram commenters, meanwhile, reported that they were largely surprised and delighted with the playful gender reveal.

“I think this is super cute,” one fan wrote.
