The couple revealed their baby’s gender as Tai performed a deadlift with black bags filled with powder inside. This happened on Tuesday, Christmas Day.

Tai, who is a  body-building enthusiast, used all his might to lift the loaded barbell. Two people then placed the bags below, making Tai drop the heavy object on them that popped blue powder out.
