As Kennedy Zarour awaited the arrival of child number six, he was clearly nervous. So when he got some unexpected news after his wife, Natalie, gave birth, he could no longer control his emotions. As a result the dad went completely nuts, sending the delivery room into a frenzy.

The Zarour family live in Waldwick, New Jersey. And by early 2017 the couple were the proud parents of five girls. Two of them – twins Collet and Ariana – were from Kennedy’s first marriage. Meanwhile, Giselle, Mia, and Jolie belonged to the both of them.

However, while Kennedy and Natalie already had a lot of kids on their hands, their family wasn’t complete just yet. In fact, in March 2017 the Zarours were preparing to welcome their sixth child. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, Kennedy was convinced that it would be another girl.

With that in mind, the pair didn’t bother finding out their unborn baby’s sex before it was born. Indeed, the parents thought that it would be a surprise for the delivery and that they would love the child just the same whatever happened.

The parents stuck by their decision. As a result, when Natalie gave birth to via cesarean section, neither parent had any idea who they were welcoming. Since discovering if they were having a new son or a daughter was quite a big deal, Natalie chose to film the reveal from her hospital bed.

In the resulting video, Kennedy can be seen wearing white scrubs, a hairnet, and a surgical mask as he anxiously awaits news of his baby’s gender. Teasing him, one of the medical staff asks, “Do you want to know? And, of course, he does.

Noticing the dad’s excitement, a man in the room asks Kennedy how many boys he has so far. “This is the first one after five girls,” he explains, before admitting, “Oh my God, wait I’m lightheaded,” and taking a much-needed seat.

Elaborating on the moment the father-of-six discovered he had a son, Kennedy admitted in 2017 that his reaction was crazy. He told the TODAY show, “I was just waiting for them to tell me it was a girl. [Then] they told me it was a boy, and I guess my reaction was a little insane.”

The Zarours named their new baby Gerard, and will most likely remember the impact his arrival had for a long time. “I couldn’t believe I got that excited,” Kennedy revealed. “I didn’t know what I was doing [and] I was just running around that place like a madman.”

In an interview with the Daily Mail in 2017, newspaper Natalie added, “It wasn’t a case of being excited. We were both stunned. After five girls, the odds seemed to be against us so we couldn’t help but celebrate.”

Revealing why the expectant mom had filmed the special moment, Natalie added, “We didn’t know what the gender was. So I figured I would record in case it was a boy as I wouldn’t want to miss my husband’s reaction.”

Seeing her husband’s joy, Natalie said, made her as happy as he was. “I was elated by the overwhelming joy [Kennedy had shown]”, she told the TODAY show. And when the couple took their new son home, their other kids were equally as pleased.

Describing the moment his daughters discovered they had a little brother, Kennedy revealed, “They were extremely excited.” And since then, they’ve grown even more smitten. “They don’t leave him alone. He’s like a little toy to them,” the proud dad added.

However, after the video of Kennedy’s reaction went viral, some viewers criticized his response. “Am I the only one feel sad and sorry to his five daughters?” one person wrote on YouTube. “As parents, we are supposed to react equally no matter [if it’s] a boy or a girl.”

But other people were simply happy to share in the dad’s joy. “I have three boys and cried like a sad fool when I found out the third [wasn’t] a girl,” one user sympathized. “We all want what we can’t have… Four times [a] charm, I got my [daughter].”

In his own defense, Kennedy explained to the TODAY show, “I adore all my kids. And I would’ve been very happy with a girl, but it was definitely a nice surprise.” Meanwhile, Natalie told the U.K.’s Daily Mail, “It was all worth it and we celebrate all our children every day.”
