Look! Coleen Garcia And Billy Crawford Surprised Everyone With A Digital Gender Reveal Party!

The secret's out—they're having a boy!

Despite the global health crisis, celebrity couple Coleen Garcia and Billy Crawford has found a silver lining during life under quarantine.


They're in the midst of a very special time in their lives—anticipating first-time parenthood! They revealed that they were expecting in May, a couple of weeks after celebrating their second wedding anniversary, and just yesterday, they made another exciting announcement.



In a live streamed gender reveal party, the parents-to-be let the secret out: they're having a boy!


It wasn't just a regular gender reveal done over a video conference, though. Despite quarantine restrictions, Coleen and Billy managed to put together a pastel-hued Instagrammable setup for the event with the theme Under the C. (The C didn't just stand for "Crawford," but for charity, too. One of the reasons Billy and Coleen decided to live stream their gender reveal was so they could share gifts with other moms and kids, too!). 




Balloons of every size, colorful  seashells, layered coral reefs, swimming fish, and even a little sea urchin and seaweed jazzed up a photo-friendly corner, but at the center of it all was a jellyfish piñata that held the best surprise of all inside.


With the tug of a string (and Billy's enthusiastic countdown!), Coleen had the cute installation spill out a heap of blue confetti to symbolize their baby's gender.


Coleen and Billy's friends were ecstatic over the reveal; their best buds Ria Atayde, Jay-R, Dominic Roque, and Kris Lawrence were there to witness it all in real time along with their fans who watched along.

Credit is definitely due to everyone who helped put this special (and super cute!) party together for Coleen and Billy. 


Finding a way to work around lockdown rules were expert event stylists Gideon Hermosa and The G Fete, both of whom have continued to style and plan home-based occasions for families and couples during this time. (They recently pulled off a playful jungle-themed party for Mariel Padilla's youngest daughter, too!). 


Coleen also highlighted The Boudoir Dolls, a photo company that helped plan an incredibly unique concept for her maternity shoot. 





They projected her sonogram onto her growing belly and had her highlight her baby's gender with a striking shade of blue lipstick, the end result being atypical maternity photos—shadowy and dramatic with a heavy digital slant! 


Coleen's usual glam squad composed of celebrity stylist Adrianne Concepcion, hairstylist Renz Pangilinan, and makeup artist Pong Niu were also given credit for helping Coleen realize the concept.
