Mother-in-law ‘ruins’ gender reveal for mom-to-be, and the ‘devastating’ footage is going viral: ‘RUN!’

A first-time mom-to-be was visibly shaken when her mother-in-law “ruined” her baby’s big gender reveal moment, and now, millions of TikTokers are warning her that the behavior could be a giant red flag.

While milestone family moments used to be shared online for viral clout — think over-the-top gender reveals, elaborate pregnancy announcements and expensive first birthday parties — many parents are now turning to social media to reveal how quickly these special memories can take a disappointing turn.

Like the angry dad who totally lost it when he found out he was having another little girl or the wife who was devastated by her husband’s “humiliating” behavior at their son’s first birthday party, this mother-in-law’s behavior at her grandson’s gender reveal is going viral for all the wrong reasons.

Uploaded by mom-to-be Alyssa (@abmontgomery07), the footage gained 1.8 million views and 173,000 likes. (Considering that Alyssa turned off the ability to comment, it’s likely the video received a high number of comments as well.)

“Is my MIL having his baby or am I,” Alyssa’s video caption reads.

While we’ve seen controversial mother-in-law moments go viral in the past — like the grandma-to-be who threw a private baby shower all for herself or the MIL who announced her son’s rainbow baby on Facebook without the parents’ permission — Alyssa’s video is shedding light on the expectations vs. realities of Pinterest-worthy moments with family.

While Alyssa’s now-viral gender reveal was uploaded over a year ago, the footage has recently been given a second life, thanks to TikTok user Jessica (@jessicabaileyhassan), who reacted to the video via the green screen effect.

Uploaded just a week ago, Jessica’s video gained over 6.5 million views, 787,000 likes, 9,000 comments and 33,000 saves.

“Ladies, this is your sign,” Jessica’s video begins. “If he’s a mama’s boy, if he has a ‘boy mom’ that’s overbearing and she’s already bothering you before the marriage, run.”

Jessica continues, “His mother ruined that moment for the pregnant [woman] … She didn’t even wait for him to hug his wife … Look at her face. She’s absolutely devastated.”

While comments were turned off in Alyssa’s original video, plenty of comments rolled in in response to Jessica’s green screen video.

“That poor mama looked so hurt and angry, I would’ve yelled at her. My MIL is overbearing and that’s why we didn’t have a gender reveal,” wrote @z.bee21.

“Definitely run! I dealt with this 11 years ago luckily didn’t get married but had a child who is apparently hers and her sons child. RUN!” commented @sakurablossom90xx.

“I’ve been with men like that. It got sooo bad! Coming over to clean, look through his things, even when him not there or either of us,” @callmemelissuhh wrote.

However, not everyone felt the mother-in-law’s behavior was inappropriate.

“Why can’t she hug her son, she’s excited 😊 my mom would do the same,” commented @mookiefruity.

While we don’t know much about Alyssa’s relationship with her mother-in-law or what happened after this viral moment, we do know that Alyssa and her husband have since welcomed a healthy baby boy named Cal.

However, it seems the legacy of Alyssa’s viral video lives on, with comments about her mother-in-law’s behavior popping up in other unrelated videos.

“Im waiting to see the mother in law try and breast feed the baby lol,” wrote @oscillatingwildly224 in response to a video Alyssa uploaded of their first week with baby Cal.

Hopefully, the family is able to move past the infamous TikTok and find some peace online.
