My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude. You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today. I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world. I know that these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support – I can’t wait to share this journey with you.

According to Holt’s most recent Instagram post, she and her husband were certain that they were going to be welcoming a girl.

However, their gender reveal turned out to be a bigger surprise than they had originally anticipated.

Watch the video below:

Turns out Holt’s gut-feeling was very wrong, she and her husband are actually having a boy.

Holt wrote on Instagram:

Gender Reveal PSA: If you are absolutely, positively certain you’re having a girl, perhaps don’t buy a lot of pink things and choose a name before you confirm…

Thousands of people watched the video, many commenting on how funny Holt and Joblon’s reactions were:
