Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are doing things a little differently when it comes to announcing their baby’s gender to their friend group. The couple just shared they are expecting a baby boy after their friends Lala Kent and Stassi Schroeder revealed they were having girls.
The announcement came Sunday night on their Instagram pages. Brittany shared a group of photos of herself and Jax looking delighted as blue confetti filled the air. The duo shot off two small confetti poppers revealing the gender to the shouts and cheers of friends and family that looked on. The couple appeared absolutely overjoyed at the surprise as Brittany covered her mouth in shock and Jax, who recently admitted he was sure they were going to have a girl, looked to the sky with a huge smile.
The dad-to-be shared a short video clip of the gender reveal to his Instagram story, as did friend and co-star Lala, who was in attendance. Also there for the gender reveal were Stassi and her fiancé Beau Clark, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Randall Emmett, and other friends. Stassi shared a video to her Instagram story as well, where she panned the camera past a Zoom call featuring a group of onlookers who couldn’t make it to the special event.
In addition to the confetti poppers, the couple’s pool turned dark blue as the bubbling hot tub sent waves of the color through the water. The pool had sunflowers and daisies floating in it, which were eventually surrounded by hundreds of shreds of blue paper.
The pair first announced they were expecting their first child on September 21 in an Instagram post in which they sat on the steps in their Valley Village home and held up several photos of a sonogram. As of now, there is no word on a due date or if it is before or after Lala’s due date.
Co-stars who did not appear in any photos or videos included Tom Schwartz, Ariana Madix, and Scheana Marie. Lala recently called out Scheana on social media for a podcast episode the “Good as Gold” singer recorded in which she admitted Lala wasn’t there for her during her miscarriage. According to Us Weekly, Lala admitted in the post they weren’t filming for the new season of Vanderpump Rules yet, which confirms there were no cameras around today to capture the fun gender reveal party.
