It was a swing and a big mistake.
A father-to-be has emerged as the mother of his child among TikTok users posted a gender reveal video shows him hitting a ball filled with blue powder and then immediately partying with his friends while she stands awkwardly to one side.
Hannah Calverley, 18, shared the video of her throwing the baseball to dad-to-be her boyfriend Travis Gober, 19. He then hits the baseball and when he sees blue he immediately runs to his friends without even hugging the woman carrying his child.
The video, titled “We’re Sooo Ready to Meet You,” was a bang from the park and went viral with 21.2 million views in less than a week and more than 63,000 comments.
However, the crowd wasn’t thrilled with Gober and his friends’ immediate dismissal of the mother-to-be.
“Um no what about the mother of the child,” commented one user.
“I’m happy for you but mom he looked straight at her first he had no intention of cheering with you first,” wrote another.
“Should be a moment between mom and dad first before ‘the boys,'” chipped in another user.
The mother-to-be spoke about the not-so-sporty dis in a follow-up videobut still defended her friend’s action.
“I didn’t think anything bad about it until I started reading the comments,” Calverley said told today.
“What people didn’t see was how he came up to me and right after that gave me a tight hug and kiss. We were so over the moon and excited.”
Calverley said E! news that she was shocked to read all the negative comments.
“I know social media tends to only see the negative, so I wasn’t too surprised people would only see the bad parts of the video.”
Father-to-be Gober also apologized for his actions, assuring that he was in love with his girlfriend and that he regretted the video shown differently.
“I know I love my girlfriend, so it was crazy to see how much hate people had for me and my teammates.”
The couple have plans to marry but with Calverley due in October they may postpone planning a wedding.
