Gender reveal parties are a social construct - but sometimes they can be heartwarming or funny

Take, for example, the case of Yessenia and Eric from Houston, Texas, who asked that we only use their first names. They revealed their baby's gender to their family and friends over Labor Day Weekend.

Speaking to INSIDER, Yessenia said that her husband Eric initially didn't want to have a gender reveal party for their baby, but eventually, she was able to convince him.

"He gave it some thought and decided that if we were going to do it we would have to think outside the box," she said, "He wanted his brother [Chris] to pop out of a box wearing a giant diaper and I thought the whole baby costume would be even better."

And, reader, it's even zanier than it sounds. Just watch.

Yessenia said that no one at the party saw the giant baby coming.

"The people at the reveal party were all shocked when the giant baby came out," she said. "Some of them expected balloons or something of that nature but never a dancing giant baby. They loved it and thought it was hilarious."

For obvious reasons, the video of a grown man dressed in a baby costume dancing has gone viral on Instagram and Twitter.

Let's be perfectly clear: People love this video.

Although other's aren't quite as taken by it.

Once you see the resemblance between the giant baby and the "Johny Johny Yes Papa" meme you just can't unsee it.

And while going viral has been a nice surprise, Yessenia told INSIDER they never anticipated this.

"We never in a million years expected our video to go viral," she said. "I decided to share it on my social media accounts for my friends and family to see and going viral never even crossed my mind."

And, yes, they will be showing this video to their baby when he's older.

"It's been a little crazy and funny to know that a viral video is actually my video," Yessenia said. "It will definitely be a cool story to tell our little one once he is older."
