Shyla Walker, a YouTube personality and influencer, decided to take her gender reveal to the next level by revealing her child’s biological sex with a brand-spanking-new Range Rover. She posted a video on Instagram showing her, her boyfriend Landon McBroom, and her family and friends gathered around a large white box. The couple pulled the box open seconds later to reveal a pink Range Rover, meaning that Shyla and her boyfriend will be having a baby girl.
She captioned the image, “This was the most magical day of my life. I’ve always envisioned my future self with a little girl but like everyone else I assumed I have having a boy! No amount of words can describe the pure emotion and bliss I was feeling. I got my little girl!”
Fans had mixed reactions about the reveal. @alexacarlos said, “I feel like you weren’t happy when you saw it was a girl.” And @mollieguwop said, “She didn’t look happy at all. She was more interested in the car. Congrats tho!” While @mariaestella_xo said, “Congrats babe! Excited for your guys’ new journey.”
The couple revealed they were pregnant in February in a YouTube video called, A New Baby is on the Way!!, posted on their channel, “This is L&S.” Watch below.

When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
