Before finding out the sex of their first child, Tanner Tolbert — wearing a baby-blue shirt in hopes that it might be a boy — pitched a wild guess to his wife Jade (Roper) Tolbert: “I think it’s a girl.”
Well, Daddy knows best. It’s a girl!
“I’m hoping for a boy,” Tanner, 30, told PEOPLE before finding out the sex. “Not that I don’t want a girl, I actually want one of each. It’s just, I’m going to make her keep trying until we have a boy, so I’d like to get it out of the way sooner.”
“He thinks I’m going to have four children if the first three are girls, but I think he’s wrong on that,” added Jade, 30.
“Two days after my missed period, I took the test,” Jade previously told PEOPLE. “I just knew it. Tanner wanted to be there. He was like, ‘Don’t take it without me.’ One morning we woke up and I took the test and we watched it on the counter and it turned from not pregnant to pregnant. I knew it, but it was like, ‘Holy cow, it’s happening.’ ”
The couple announced their pregnancy in March with a series of adorable photos.
“We’re crazy grateful to finally announce a little secret we’ve been keeping,” Jade revealed via Twitter last month. “We’re absolutely head over heels in love already!”
And boy (er, girl), were they surprised!
