A gender reveal nearly went horribly wrong when a pregnant woman was almost run over by her partner’s motorbike.
In the video posted to TikTok, a man is seen revving his dirt bike in the backyard of a suburban Australian home while an expectant mother in a pink dress stands in front of it.
Suddenly the bike lurches forward over the brick placed under the front wheel and almost knocks the mum-to-be off her feet.
The back wheel spins in the grass and a small puff of blue smoke is revealed.
‘It’s a boy!’ yell friends off camera while laughing hysterically at the stunt gone wrong.

The pregnant woman seems unfazed by the mishap, regathering her balance to pop a balloon reading ‘girl or boy?’
Blue powder then explodes over her face and that of her partner, who seems more interested in whether he has done any damage to his bike.
‘How TikTok stars are made,’ TikTokker @jus_milk_, who posted the video, remarked.
‘What a disaster,’ a number of people commented on the post.
‘When your ambitions outweigh your ability,’ wrote another person.
‘It’s a bogan!’ quipped a fourth.
Another TikTok user judged the gender reveal as ‘better than the luxury show-off ones’.
Gender reveals involving motorcycles are increasingly common, with pink or blue smoking from a back wheel burnout to announce either girl or boy.
Equally, gender reveal ‘fails’ have become viral sensations as the best-laid plans inevitably go wrong.
