Videos are shared, stories are told and in a few minutes, people will quickly judge and comment based on their own point of view.

But, a few moments of a video clip uploaded online does not fully show who a person really is.

This is the sentiment that one couple would like to remind everyone.

Travis Gober and Hannah Calverley are going to be parents in just a few months.

The woman is pregnant and will be giving birth soon, but the couple does not know yet if their baby will be a girl or a boy.

The future parents thought of having a gender reveal party with their family and friends.

Trending these days are unique gender reveal parties that leave people excited and happy in just figuring out what the baby’s gender will be.

The young couple wanted this for themselves as well and so, they set up a party with their friends and family, and together, they celebrated the moment they would all know the baby’s gender.

At any gender reveal party, there will always be a team hoping the baby will be a girl and another team hoping it will be a boy.

The young couple had decided to have a baseball-themed gender reveal party.

Hannah will pitch a baseball and her boyfriend, Travis, will hit it with a bat.

If the ball explodes with blue powder, the baby in her tummy is a boy, but if it is pink, then it is a girl.

The moment of truth.

The couple was in an open field for the gender reveal.

All of their families and friends are excited to know which side wins.

Is it a boy or a girl?

Of course, the occasion needs to be filmed and as Hannah threw the ball, Travis strongly hits it and finally, blue powder came out!

The dad-to-be was evidently shocked and ecstatic after finding out he was having a boy and ran straight to his guy friends, who were also jumping in glee.

Yes, he ran directly to his man friends.

So, where does that leave his girlfriend, Hannah?

The video uploaded online shows the pregnant mom-to-be trying to run to her boyfriend after the gender was revealed, but he ran straight to his guys and she had no choice but to step aside.

It was just a few seconds of video shared online, but people who viewed it were quick to reprimand and criticize the father-to-be for doing such a thing to his pregnant girlfriend.

People online threw flack on Travis for his initial reaction after finding out the baby’s gender.

“Should be a moment between the ma and dad first before ‘the boys,’” one commenter wrote.

“You deserved better than this,” another post said, addressing the mom-to-be.

In an interview with Inside Edition, the young couple found the opportunity to explain their side.

“Travis is a great guy,” Hannah said about her child’s father. “One 15-second video definitely does not show his character.”

Travis also speaks up about his reaction.

“I was just really shocked it was a boy because I really thought it was going to be a girl,” he said. “I wish I could go back and change it, but we all know I love her.”

And truthfully, they cannot go back to that moment anymore.

But it is also true that a short video doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love his girlfriend.

People can judge all they want based on the video, but the couple is certain that it was just a moment’s reaction and does not really tell the whole story of their lives.
