Son Nearly Chokes to Death During Cupcake Gender Reveal Moment

Son Nearly Chokes to Death During Cupcake Gender Reveal Moment


A gender reveal moment nearly had a disastrous outcome after a young boy nearly choked on his cupcake during what should’ve been a happy moment!

Peg and Nick Theobald, parents of eight-year-old, Adler and 10-year-old Everson were expecting their third child and decided to involve the whole family in their gender reveal celebration. The heart stopping moment was captured on video and has since gone viral with 17.4 million views.

During the reveal, the family members all held white cupcakes, intending to take a bite and reveal the colored icing inside. As they simultaneously took a bite, everything seemed to be going as expected until young Adler began to choke on the cake. The rest of the family, unaware of his distress, continued to celebrate, while Adler struggled to breathe.

Peg became increasingly upset as she noticed her son’s choking. She rushed to help him and asked if he was alright. Eventually, Adler managed to cough up the cake with Nick’s assistance, and the video ended.

Peg shared the video with a lighthearted caption, jokingly referring to it as their family barely surviving the cupcake gender reveal. However, some viewers in the comments expressed concern, pointing out that it was a close call and that the situation should not be taken lightly.

Despite the seriousness of the incident, some commenters managed to find humor in the situation, commenting on Adler’s unwavering eye contact during the choking incident. Others found amusement in the phrase “take a breath” being used to address choking, and some even guiltily laughed while wondering about the baby’s gender.

While the family can now look back on the incident with relief, it serves as a cautionary tale about the importance of safety during such celebrations. Choking hazards should always be considered, and everyone present should be attentive to each other’s well-being.
