(ARLINGTON, Texas) — A father’s silent reaction was recorded on video as he learned the sex of his fifth child.
Mark Taylor, 34, stood shocked and speechless as he walked through the door to pink balloons on his living room floor — revealing that he’d soon be a dad to five girls.
Angel Taylor, 34, said her husband, a father of four, was quiet for a whole two hours after learning the news.
“He just wouldn’t talk,” Angel Taylor of Arlington, Texas, told ABC News. “He busted out laughing a couple of times. I thought it was hilarious actually.”
Angel Taylor said that her husband thought that for sure, this child would be a boy — especially after the couple had suffered a miscarriage.
“My husband’s thinking, ‘This is a miracle baby, so this has to be a boy,’” she added. “He always wanted to call the baby [boy] Tre. I already came to terms that this was a baby girl.”
On Oct. 25, Angel Taylor filmed her husband as she and their four daughters, Jordyn, 12, Juliyn, 9, Jaxsyn, 3, and Jestyn, 9 months, announced the news of girl No. 5.
Once the shock wore off, dad was excited that No. 5 would once again be a little girl. “Wow,” he says in the video, as he took a sip of beer.
“Five is my favorite number, so five girls is fitting,” Mark Taylor said in a statement to ABC News.
Baby Jazlyn is due to arrive May 3.
