These parents were in total shock to discover the gender of their new baby.

Tasmania couple Koto Nakamura and husband Sina Niakansafy had been told they were expecting a baby girl. Imagine their surprise after their new baby was born only to discover it was a boy!

Koto’s reaction of shock was caught brilliantly by her birth photographer Jessica Jackson from Itty Bitty Photography in Tasmania.

During delivery, her midwife told her a story of a past client who had been told that her baby was one gender, only to deliver the opposite.

“We were all laughing and joking, saying ‘oh gosh imagine if that happened to Koto’ we really didn’t believe it was possible,” Jessica said.

“I knew I had managed to capture Koto’s initial reaction as it happened, but I was worried because of all the excitement and laughter that it may not have been bang on in focus,” she said.

“The look I captured was her saying ‘a boy? Jess am I hearing this right’, I remember saying to her, ‘Yes you have a son!”

“It was the first image I opened when I got home to edit.”

AMAZING capture. What a great memory to keep.

  • Great photo, that is one problem with supposedly knowing the gender. Not getting what you hope for and having having everything done up for what you thought you were getting.


  • Great shot from a great shock !
    They were lucky to have a birth photographer !


  • Fantastic photo. They’ll have that to cherish forever. What a huge shock it must have been for the parents.


  • What a great photo! I’m sure it would have been a big shock to expect a girl but get a boy!


  • Haha, that image is gold! Wow what a surprise for them, it would be so hard to get your head around.


  • 2″I left my office-j0b and now I am getting paid 98 usd hourly. How? I work over internet! My old work was making me miserable, so I was forced to try something different, 2 years after…I can say my life iis changed-completely for the better! Check it out what i do. ————-> Postjobs50.Tk


  • The look on Koto’s face is priceless, and what great timing by the photographer.


  • That’s a priceless photo. Great shot.


  • Amazing! I love that picture!
    No, no surprise gender delivery for me. But to my youngest sister the doctors had originally said that she was expecting a boy, and at the next echo they admitted they had made a mistake and it was a girl. At the disappointment of my brother in law who was hoping to finally get a boy. Another girl instead! :-)


  • The photo is priceless! Such a shock when you thought you were giving birth to a girl!


  • We had a similar experience. We hadn’t been told what sex our 2nd baby was but, we were expecting a boy as there hadn’t been a girl born in my husband’s family for a few generations. Imagine our surprise to have a beautiful daughter after 4 generations of boys! My parents in law were ecstatic.


  • Oh wow…what a surprise that must have been. And to have the photos to talk about it in years too come. Priceless!


  • This happened to me as well. I thought I was having a boy, and was blessed with a beautiful daughter.
