With all the technology we have now, it’s rare to hear of people waiting to find out what their baby is.

Let’s face it, there are ultrasound machines that can show us a 4D view of our baby’s face at about 12 weeks. So, most people don’t wait 40 weeks to find out if they are having a boy or a girl if they don’t have to. Not to mention the complicated gender reveals that the Internet couldn’t live without.

Dara Crouch chose to do things the “old-fashioned” way when she gave birth to her second child. The 29-year-old woman from Columbus, Georgia, wanted to keep her second child’s gender a secret.

Dara thought she had this pregnancy figured out because no one on her mother’s side of the family had had a boy in more than 50 years. Dara’s family history showed that it could only be a girl, with bows and ruffles.

She told TODAY, “I just knew it was a girl.”

The Crouches finally got to meet the newest member of their family. After four hours of labor, HE was born. There was a BOY! It’s the first one in 500 years!

People say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think these are worth a lot more than that.

Dara said that she was “more shocked than anything else.”

Neely Ker-Fox, a family friend and photographer who has been taking pictures of births since 2011, caught the surprise and Dara’s reaction on film. “Dara’s was by far the most honest reaction I’ve ever seen,” she told TODAY.

About five minutes before pushing, the couple started to think again about the possibility that the baby was a boy. Neely called Dara’s reaction to this “motherly apprehension.” Moments later, the woman, who was now a mother of two, was ecstatic and shouting, “Oh my gosh! “A boy! I can’t believe it’s a boy!”

Liam’s birth was made even more special by the fact that Dara gave birth to him at the hospital where she and her husband, Eric, have both worked for the past seven years. Camille, her best friend and also a nurse, helped deliver the baby.

“As a labor-and-delivery nurse, you see the emotions in the room…

“When you’ve been taking care of someone for 12 hours or more, you can sometimes get very close to them,” Dara said about her job as a nurse. “But nothing beats the excitement I felt with Liam.”

Photos of the birth and Dara’s infectious happiness were posted on the Birth Without Fear website, where they quickly went viral.

As for Liam being the first boy in Dara’s family to make history, let’s just say he knows how to treat a lady.
