The gender of their babies wasn't the only thing Desiree Fortin and husband Ryan were keeping a secret from their families. The couple, who resorted to in vitro fertilization after struggling with fertility issues, ended up getting pregnant with triplets!
And since keeping the pregnancy news hush hush just wasn't a possibility, the couple decided to keep the number of children a surprise — but chose to share the news with their loved ones in an exciting way.
"We had opened up to so many people about our journey and our struggles," said Desiree on the 'Today' show. "And we'd received so much support from all of our friends, our church, and our families. So we really wanted to give them something exciting and special, too."

Desiree and Ryan gathered their closest friends and family together for a gender reveal party where everyone took bets on the sex of the twins. But after announcing they were having two baby boys by opening two boxes with blue balloons, they later shocked the crowd by pulling out a third set of balloons — which were pink!
