A dad-to-be was left with ‘blue balls’ after accidentally setting off a gender reveal flare straight into his crotch
Kristin Cressotti and husband Tom gathered family and friends for a party at their home in Massachusetts to tell them if their second child is a girl or a boy.
With four-year-old daughter Ella stood in the middle, the couple – who have been married for six years – prepared to fire their powder cannons into the sky.
After counting down from five, medical sales rep Kristin, 36, fired the blue powder into the air.
Unfortunately for Tom, 43, his cannon was facing the wrong way, leaving his groin to take the full brunt of the blast, which was meant to shoot powder 30 feet away.
Hilarious footage shows Tom doubled over before curling up on the floor with onlookers laughing – leaving his shorts covered in bright blue powder to show he’s due to have a son.
The debacle left one friend joking ‘no need for that vasectomy’.
The hilarious clip has now been viewed more than 751,000 times online.
Kristin said: ‘The overall reaction was shock, followed by laughter. Once everyone knew we were all ok we had lots of laughs about the event.
‘Unfortunately, the instructions in the box were unclear. We were apparently holding the powder cannons pointing in the wrong direction.
‘When used correctly the powder should be dispersed 20-30 feet into the air. Since Tom’s cannon was unknowingly pointing right at his genitals, he was directly blasted.
‘He was not permanently hurt by the accident and fully recovered within minutes. Tom was just shocked that we were holding them the incorrect way.’
Kristin continued: ‘Apparently this was all my fault!
‘Everyone was also very excited that we are having a baby boy. He is due in February 2021 and we can’t wait to meet him.’
Since being uploaded to Facebook, the video has been shared more than 6,300 times, leaving many people to joke ‘no more babies for him’.
