Expecting couple keeping baby’s name and gender a secret until its 18th birthday
LOS ANGELES – A couple expecting their first child told friends and family they are keeping the name and gender of their baby a secret until it turns 18.
“We decided it’s up to us whether we want to share that information or not,” said the mother in a passive-aggressive Facebook post. “We are worried revealing the name we picked will give away the gender, so both are kept a secret, for now.”
The father commented, “we are waiting until the baby turns 18. We won’t know what the baby’s gender is until after its born, as we don’t subscribe to gender stereotypes and roles. That’s why we are waiting until it’s a few weeks old to point at something blue or pink to decide for itself. Until then, it’s a they-by “
