IT'S normal for there to be tears of happiness at a baby gender reveal, but one dad's cry was a result of a painful incident which had him rolling around the floor in agony.
Oliver and his wife Emma Bayliffe Newby, from Manchester, were announcing the sex of their baby when he accidentally fired a confetti cannon straight into his crotch.
Gemma filmed the incident and shared the clip on their YouTube channel, and what was supposed to be a sweet family moment ended up going horribly wrong.
In a video, Oliver is seen struggling with the party decoration for some time, trying to release the blue confetti.
Clearly perplexed, he turns the cannon towards himself, and within an instant, accidentally fires it between his legs.
Naturally, the man's smile faded as he dropped to the ground in pain while his young daughter and wife Gemma burst out laughing.

Holding a bunch of blue balloons – indicating the arrival of a baby boy – the young daughter continues howling with laughter, and clearly amused, begins doing laps around her dad.
The hilarious footage shows Oliver curling up into a ball on the living room floor, shouting: "Oh s**t!" – but things continued to go wrong.
It was only after the man had recovered from the blast that they were able to celebrate the exciting moment, which very quickly turned sour for the young daughter.
The parents ask her what she thought the blue balloons meant,but she insists she'll be getting a little sister.
Upon telling her she would have a little brother she burst into tears, shouting: "'I didn't want a boy! I wanted a girl!"
In one last attempt to make her feelings known, she adorably storms across the room in tears as her parents try and convince her that having a little brother is a good thing.
They said: "It's OK because Peppa Pig has got a brother," but it seems the little one still wasn't convinced.
When sharing the clip, Gemma hilariously wrote: "From start to finish, everything that could go wrong definitely did. Watch until the end! It has everything; suspense, comedy, and tears."
