More and more expectant couples are finding unique ways to reveal the sex of their newborns via "gender reveal parties." But parents-to-be Graham and Monica Driscoll of Windsor, Nova Scotia, went to all new heights.
The couple and their son Bennett used fireworks to find out if they were having a boy or a girl.
"We didn't want to do the typical cupcake thing," Graham, who works part-time for a fireworks company called FireworksFX, told ABC News. "A light bulb went off and I thought fireworks would be a neat idea."
The couple didn't know if they were having a boy or a girl before the fireworks display. Instead, Graham gave the sealed test results to his boss and let the company surprise them both. Pink fireworks would mean their baby, who is due in late July, would be a girl and blue for a boy. They found out the results surrounded by family and friends.
"The reaction was awesome,” Graham told Huffington Post via email. "Everyone enjoyed it (the whole show was almost seven minutes long). The grandmothers are over the moon ecstatic."
So what are they going to have? You'll have to watch the video above to find out!

How to play: Freeze a bunch of small babies in an ice cube tray. People put the frozen baby ice cubes in their drink. When the ice cube melts and the baby is floating, you yell "my water broke" to win a prize.
How to play: Take some gum, chew it, spit it out and do your best to form a baby.
How to play: Take six different chocolate bars, melt each one separately in the microwave, put one melted chocolate bar in a baby diaper, fold diaper closed. Players then put their faces in the diapers to smell and see if they can identify the chocolate bar.
How to play: Draw a uterus, complete with fallopian tubes. "Implant" an egg (with the face of the pregnant woman). Make a bunch of sperm (with pictures of the baby daddy), blindfold the players and then have them try to pin their sperm on the egg.
How to play: Tie a banana to a string. Tie the other end of the string around the player's waist. Make sure the banana is dangling to the ground. Put an orange on the floor. The player must thrust her way across the room, getting the banana to hit the orange forward until the orange ends up in a hoola hoop. Fastest time wins.
How to play: Put blown-up balloons up players' shirts. Put a ping-pong between the players' knees. Have the players waddle their way (without dropping the ball) over to a jar, which they have to drop the ball into.
How to play: Half the players have toilet paper rolls between their legs. The other half of the players have a plunger between their legs. The goal is to stick the plunger in the hole of the toilet paper roll.
