Priceless Photos Capture Mom’s Moment Of Surprise After Giving Birth To A Boy Before That She Thought That Was A Girl

Life can be full of surprises, but for this couple a surprise came in a very unexpected way. One couple got the sʜᴏᴄᴋ of a ʟɪFᴇᴛɪᴍᴇ when they learned their new baby’s sᴇx wasn’t what they expected.

One couple got the sʜᴏᴄᴋ of a ʟɪFᴇᴛɪᴍᴇ when they learned their new baby’s sᴇx wasn’t what they expected. Throughout her pregnancy, Kim Guiley of Santa Cruz, California, had been certain the baby, her second child, was a girl, even though she and husband Travis were hoping for a son.

“I had a correlation between sɪᴄᴋɴᴇss and having girls, so I think that partially contributed, too. And my 2-year-old daughter thought it was a girl. I had all these silly reasons.” she said

“I opened his legs and was just sʜᴏᴄᴋed. I mean, you saw the look on my face — you can’t make up that look. It was very surprising, and I didn’t realize how much I was hoping for a boy until that moment.””Guiley said

She experienced a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ in 2015, and she suspects that’s also part of the reason she had opted out of learning the baby’s sᴇx. “After the ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ, I was just really attached to having a healthy baby, regardless of sᴇx,” she said. “My husband wanted to find out, and I said, ‘No, let’s have fun with it.’ During the ultrasounds, we got to look when they showed us the head and upper body, and as soon as they got mid-baby, we would look away.”

 

Luckily, they’d invited photographer Susannah Gill along for the birth, and she captured the moment in a photo that has since gone viral. Guiley and her husband were thrilled when they saw the photos. Kim and her husband had spent the pregnancy preparing for a girl, even picking out her name. And now her boy’s name is Theo.

 

The photo is reminiscent of another now-famous shot of mum getting a surprise on her baby’s birth day. Koko Nakamura gave birth to what she also thought was going to be a girl, after being told it was a female at her scans. But the baby turned out to be a boy – and photographer Jessica Jackson of Itty Bitty Photography got a hilarious shot of the moment on camera, too.
