    But just as the 29-year-old is about to walk inside, the balloon bursts – showering him in blue confetti and revealing his baby’s gender on the doorstep. 

    bLois, 27, can be heard screaming ‘no’ after watching the whole blunder happen.

    With a look of sheer frustration, HGV driver Anthony turns to Lois and says: ‘I didn’t pop it. F*** sake.’ 

    Seeing the funny side of the situation, Lois then starts laughing and declares: ‘It’s a boy.’

    Anthony is less than impressed by the mishap, and can be heard saying ‘what a f****** joke’, before walking down the driveway in disbelief.

    He says ‘that was not funny’ before paralegal Lois, who is due in July, replies: ‘Not funny but it’s a laugh.

    ‘What did you hit it on? Clear it up.’

    After kicking the driveway, Anthony replies: ‘Oh yeah, clear it up. It’s f***ing everywhere.’
