Monique Tello and Steven Statter channeled their love of baseball into an epic sex reveal. Tello's sister Marissa was the only person to learn the sex of their baby after her ultrasound. She then filled a clear plastic Christmas ornament with powdered chalk -- choosing between pink powder for a girl or blue for a boy -- and painted it to look like a baseball.

One afternoon at a baseball diamond with friends and family, Tello pitched the ornament baseball to Statter, who hit it with his bat and released a storm of pink powder.
