The video shows Hehner, Otis and their 2-year-old daughter, Henley Grace, at the bash. Henley cracks pink and blue hardboiled eggs on her parents' foreheads until a blue raw egg confirms the couple are having a son.

"We are so happy to FINALLY share our gender reveal with YOU! ....drumroll pleaseeeeee...." Otis wrote on Instagram. "IT'S A BOY!!!! We are over the moon excited for our newest little edition."

Otis and Hehner announced in September they are expecting again after experiencing two miscarriages and infertility struggles.

"We went to the fertility specialist and found out WE ARE PREGNANT!!! I cannot even believe it! ...after 18 long, painful months, two losses and negative after negative on the pregnancy tests we are *finally* pregnant again!" Otis wrote on Instagram.

We went to the fertility specialist and found out WE ARE PREGNANT!!! I cannot even believe it!...after 18 long, painful months, two losses and negative after negative on the pregnancy tests we are *finally* pregnant again! Of course I am being cautiously optimistic, but I have a feeling this little one is going to stick.. ....the only thing is, yesterday the nurse called and said my blood work came back a bit different than anticipated. • Based on my last period, I should be about 4 weeks along. The blood work to support this would look like this: progesterone 8-10 & HCG 50-300 • My blood work came back like this: progesterone 51 & HCG 1,441 !!! • This means that I'm either further along OR I could potentially have TWINS!(They said it's most likely I'm further along but I would absolutely love twins!) • Thank you, thank you, *THANK YOU!* for all the encouragement, love, & prayers. IT WORKED! WE ARE FINALLY PREGNANT !!!!! • And before I end this looong caption, I just want to say this: if you're reading this & are currently in the process of #ttc - oh mama, my heart hurts for you. I know the instant internal pain that comes from another's pregnancy announcement - even if you are or at least want to be - happy for the lucky couple. I just want you to know that your rainbow will come too. The storm cant stay forever. Hold onto hope! I am thinking of you! • ....@doughehner & I recorded a bonus podcast ep on @hotmarriagecoolparents so we could share the WHOLE story on how we found out the best news of our lives with you! I put the link in my bio for ya! • • #mafs #marriedatfirstsight #bestfrans #pregnancyannouncement #finally #pregnant #pleasestick #rainbowbaby #firsttrimester #pregnancyjourney #preggo #yaya #familygoals #ttc #tryingtoconceive #ttccommunity #positivethoughts #instagood #tryingtoconceive #fertilityjourney #fertility #twins #twinsofinstagram #preggers #pregnancyphoto #pregnancyreveal #pregnancy #growingfamily
