I Have To Admit This Harry Potter Gender Reveal Is Pretty Magical

Gender reveals have come under a ton of fire in recent years. Maybe because some gender reveals have started literal wildfires. And because the social and political discussion of gender has become very sensitive. The good news is, even if you hate gender reveals, you’ll still find this one by @Laraiby_ on TikTok pretty darn impressive.

This gender reveal had a Harry Potter theme and the happy couple hosted an entire magical reveal party around the wizarding world book series. Check out this first video she posted where everyone at the party goes around and documents what gender they think the baby is.

You’ll note that Mom-to-be is house Gryffindor and Dad’s Slytherin. Some people just offer words, but the crowd seems evenly split with the last kid totally lost as to what is going on. Can we get a round of applause for the family’s commitment to costume? They are so on point and willing to be silly. We see scars on foreheads, authentic-looking sweater vests, one guy is drowning in a gigantic Hagrid-style wig, and of course there are cloaks and wands.

A stranger in the comments thinks “it’s DOBBY” to which Laraib confirms that will be the baby’s first Halloween costume either way. I could talk for hours about how cute and supportive her crew is, but now it’s time to get to the reveal!

The couple really sets the scene. There’s a black backdrop with braided balloons hanging overhead. The black table holds stacked old-looking suitcases, glowing candles, what I think is a plush owl, and the all-important gender-revealing cauldron!

Like they’re brewing a potion and casting a spell, the soon-to-be parents wait for the big reveal. Suddenly pink smoke billows from the cauldron and the party guests cheer. It’s a baby girl! Or should I say, witch? What a cool idea for Laraib and any other huge Harry Potter fan.

Let me just say that I would watch a similarly staged reveal of what Hogwarts house the baby will be in.

Arguably more important.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
