For some, it's one of the most fun parts of pregnancy. Your doctor has told you whether you're expecting a little girl or little boy, and it's your secret to reveal in your own time, in your own way.
You get to decide where, when and how you're going to tell your friends and family, and for one lucky woman, the best time and place was a Justin Timberlake show.
Maddie Putrino is a long-time Timberlake fan, and when she came to a recent show armed with signs about her reveal she thought she might get a selfie with the man of the woods himself.
Her sign caught Timberlake's eye but he had way more than a quick selfie in mind. "He kind of stopped the show after one of his songs to announce the gender reveal," Putrino told the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin. "I thought he would just take a picture with me and he announced it to the whole crowd."
Putrino says she's lucky she got in on video because she was so excited the moment passed in a blur.
Putrino and her husband Nick are already proud parents to a little boy. The news that Timberlake revealed was music to their ears.
Unfortunately, JT won't be doing any more baby announcements in the near future, as he's had to cancel some performances due to bruised vocal cords.
"I'm gonna make this up to you," Timberlake wrote in an Instagram post announcing the concert cancellation.
Rest up JT, because there are a lot of mamas out there who would love to use your vocal cords to make their big announcement.
Congrats to Maddie Putrino on becoming a #girlmom! 🎉
