Congratulations! That’s so exciting!
I’m sure it’s my own pregnancy hormones that has me crying at my desk but I’m crying none the less. My first gift is a little boy who stole my heart the minute I met him. Little boys love their Mommas differently than little girls do. Congrats!

I’m crying like a fool all over my Oreo Poptart. Congrats!! I have three boys, so they are all I know, but I think boys are AMAZING. This baby boy is so blessed to be in your family.
forgot to mention i totally thought it was a girl by how the silver paper on lid was reflecting pink off of the quilt and i thought it was a pink balloon!!! and then the blue balloon started float up. so awesome!! SNIPS AND SNAILS AND PUPPY DOG TAILS! XO
Congratulations! So excited for you. Little boys have a special place in Mama’s heart.
Also glad to see you look like you’re feeling better. Take it easy.

Call it crazy preggo emotions, but I’m crying! So happy that you will experience the joys of being a mom to a boy! It is much different than being a mom to a girl, but just as much fun.

Congratulations Kelle and family!! So excited for you guys!! Everything everyone has said about little boys is true. They really do love their Mamas a whole lot.

I am so excited for you! I have 2 boys with a girl in the middle and boys are so wonderful! There is something different about loving a boy…words fail me in how to describe it but I have no doubt that you will be able to hit the nail on the head when you start to write about him! Congratulations Hampton Family!

You made me cry with this video … Happy cry! I am sooo super-duper (its how my son says) happy for you and your family!!Congrats, congrats, congrats!!!xoxo
Congratulations! What a wonderful reveal – so, so sweet!
Well done!! In every single way.
whoo hooo!!! huge congrats! that baby boy will be so spoiled by his sisters!!!!
Awww, Hamptons, CONGRATULATIONS! Wonderful days lie ahead.
And don’t even bother with the PeePeeTeePee garbage. Your kid’s either going to pee when his diaper is being changed or he’s not. If he’s a pee-er and wears that thing, then you’ll just have one more thing to wash! A little pee never hurt anyone. Good for the soul.
yay! I knew it! Will you hold out on us with the name?
I have goosebumps! How exciting! I love the reveal as well. I was secretely hoping for a boy for you…I can imagine the adorable outfits you will assemble for a baby boy. P.S. you all look positively fairytale-ish with white lace dresses in the middle of a field and a blue balloon.
Awww….I’ve got goosebumps. What a neat way to reveal. And I’m so happy for you!! A boy…I can’t wait to see the adorable outfits you come up with and I have a distinct feeling bowties and newsboy caps will be involved. (seems to fit with the style choices for your girls. P.S. You all look positively fairytale-ish in white lace dresses in the middle of a field with a balloon.
Oh Kelly. I am so happy for you! I just had my first little boy after three girls and I am so in love with this little man. He has completely stolen me…I am his! :)Great reveal. Thank you for sharing!
What a beautiful way to share your news! Congratulations to all!!!
Congratulations!!!! Lainey & Nella will be wonderful big sisters to a sweet baby boy
So beautiful! Thanks for sharing! He’ll be one lucky little dude.
This is absolutely stunning. I showed the slide to my boys (4 and 2) and they looked at me silly because I had tears running down my cheeks. Did you do something special for the reveal of the sex with your girls?
I don’t usually comment, but I have been reading your blog for a while now and always enjoy what you have to say. But being the momma of two girls and then a precious little boy I just had to leave a comment. When I was pregnant with Jude everyone kept telling me about this special bond momma’s have with their little boy. I would always nod my head and say “can’t wait” but I never understood what they meant until he came into our lives. It’s not that I love him more than my girls, as if that’s possible, it’s just…different. Boys really do steal their mommy’s heart. Congratulations!!!
Kelle! I just got all teary at work first thing this am! Congratulations. Totally awesome. And to see yours and Lainey’s expressions were priceless!!!!
Thanks for sharing.
Of course the reveal was epically beautiful, like everything you make. Congrats on your precious boy…so excited for you all!
Goose bumps! Such a cool reveal, I love it. You will love being a momma to a baby boy… I have one and man, does he ever love his momma. Congratulations!
Congrats! All the best to your family.
Congratulations and much love to you! You are in for such a special and amazing relationship with your little boy!
Congratulations! So excited for you guys!
So incredibly happy for all of you; this little boy is so blessed to be joining your family!
Oh my gosh!! Your video made me so teary!!! He will be just as beautiful and perfect as your girls. Congratulations!!
Congratulations, Kelle! So excited for you guys. The girls are going to be such wonderful sisters to their little brother:) Happy Friday, indeed!
This is literally so precious I could die. So many tears. I am so excited for you and your family! Much love coming your way. Congratulations, Kelle, Brett, boys and girls!
Congrats! I was hoping for a boy for you all, I can’t wait to see Austyn and Brandyn teaching him all the boy stuff, and I know he will want to be just like them in taking care of his big sisters. Love your family!
YAY!!!!! So excited for all of you!!!
oh. my. goodness! I am not sure why that made me cry, but it did. congratulations!
Tears of happiness for your family too. Congratulations! This little man is going to feel the LOVE! Big sisters are going to be amazing. Thanks for sharing and beautiful pic/video montage.
GOT CHILLS! you will LOVE having a baby boy they steal your heart in an instant. i have 3 beautiful boys they are my world:)many blessings
Oh my gosh!!!! So exciting!!! I’m so happy for you and your family!!!
kelle, the video is adorable. what a fun way to share the news with everyone who loves your family! congrats on a healthy pregnancy & the anticipation of a sweet baby boy. along with 5 daughters i have one son, 7 years old now, who is forever my little boyfriend…get ready for a whole new kind of love affair! xo
Thank you so very much for sharing this amazing news!
That’s awesome!!! They’re going to have so much fun with a little brother! Congrats
Congratulations, Kelle! So happy and excited for you. Little boys are the best blessing ever!
What a perfect reveal! I had chills and a big smile all over my face watching that in anticipation! Congrats to you all! A little boy! What a blessing
Kelle, I’m so glad you’re going to get to experience the joys of a boy! I know you have the older boys, but it will be so incredible for you to have a boy from infancy on up. We have three boys and a baby girl, and I have been amazed at how different it is to have a girl, even though she’s only 11 months old. The first few months the only real difference is diaper-changing, but after that you really start to see bigger differences! You are so blessed. So happy for you all!
you are going to love being a boys mama. they are the sweetest little things.
amazing! beautiful! we find out our gender on monday! would you tell me who sings the song you used? our last name is starr, and we love it! thanks!
Congratulations!!!!! I am so happy for you.
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!I have had a feeling since you announced your pregnancy that it was a gorgeous little man!!
Thank you for sharing your special news in such a special way – the pure delight on your girls faces! They are going to be adorable big sisters!x
YAY!!! so happy for you and your family. what a blessing and joy. thank you for sharing your news with us
Omgoodness … Congratulations Hampton family!!!! I am so stinkin’ excited for you all!!! Love, love, loved the video and oh the pictures you have captured! Especially love the one of Lainey hugging the “blue” balloon with the enormous smile … that is just too precious!

Congratulations Kelle and family! I can’t wait to meet him on your blog! Boys are amazing, I have two. Beautiful video!!
Cutest video ever!!!
As a mom of five boys I can tell you….. they’re pretty awesome!
Lainey and Nella will be head over heels in love too!
I went to bed thinking I cannot wait to wake up and find out what Kelle is having! 😉 I am ecstatic for you and your family! That video and the photos were gorgeous!

Congratulations!! As the mama of four boys, I am so excited for you! What a sweet way to share the news.
As always, I’m in tears. What a sweet video, a little brother! Congrats to you all.
Kelle,I just KNEW you were having a boy! I wasn’t surprised when I saw the blue balloon, but I teared up anyway. I just had a baby boy three months ago (my fifth!). My little Ava with Ds is the same age as Nella. I can tell you that after going through the shocking birth experience that we both shared, you will not believe the joy you will feel in your heart when you see your baby boy for the first time. Surreal.
I’m so thrilled for you and Brett and Lainey and sweet Nella. Congratulations a million times over. A baby brother! Blessed…
LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! Congratulations Hampton family!! It was so cute to hear little lainey’s voice <3
Congratulations. So excited for you and your family. I love the way you revealed this! and the happiness on all your faces. So sweet.
Your son has the most beautiful mom and sisters. Congratulations and thank you for sharing a gorgeous memory with us
My own 2-year-old baby boy watched this with me. He loved the balloon and laughed when Lainey spoke. He didn’t cry, but I teared up a bit! Now we will watch it again so he can see the balloon again! Congratulations!
Congrats! What a sweet way to let everyone know. You can see how much love you have for each other. What a lucky little boy.
Thank you for sharing this precious moment! Congratulations! Now you get to get all new stuff! Woo hoo!
Congrats! What a wonderful video; thanks for sharing!
Little boys steal your heart in a whole different way and turn your world upside down at decibels you could never imagine. Enjoy!
Ah… a boy! Congratulations!!! What an awesome reveal!
Congratulations! I have an 8 month old son and I was nervous at first about having a boy but now I’m so happy, he’s the coolest little dude in the world and a total mama’s boy. There really is something special about a mother-son relationship.

Funny how things work…

I knew it! I have a boy and two girls too, except my boy is my oldest. He is now 8, and still loves to cuddle his mama, and adores his little sisters. Most of the time.
I know you are all thrilled. I can’t wait to hear about his big brothers’ reaction. I know they adore their sisters, but now a baby brother – that is something special. My sister has a 20 year age gap between her eldest son and her baby boy (with two girls and another boy in between), and they still have such an amazing bond. Plus teenagers who stay up late are great for MOTN post-feed cuddles. Congratulations mama!
Congratulations!! What happy news:) I am the mother of 5 boys so I can say “welcome to the world of BOYS” It is a wonderful place and your sweet little girlies will be such darling big sisters! xo from Tennessee!
Ahhhhhh!!!! So happy for you guys!! Congrats!! 😀
That is THE coolest thing ever! Both the blue balloon AND the video that makes it so real. I, like all the others, got goosebumps. Congrats!
so precious! Enjoy every moment of your pregnancy.
Sweetest thing EVER!!! Truly there is nothing better than having 2 little girls and adding a boy We added our lil’ man 2 years ago next month!! Congrats!!!
Beautiful! Many congratulations!!P.S. You look amazing in this video
BEST video ever!! Total chills thru the whole thing:) LOVE Lainey’s commentary. So beautiful……..congratulations<3

You know what? By my tears, you would think I just found out what I was having. And Im not even pregnant!
Congrats to the whole Hampton Family!!
i too got the chills! i am so happy for you and your family! super exciting to have a little boy, totally love mine! i know that we don’t know each other in real life, but i just want to jump up and hug you! lainey is too adorable and the happiness on your face is priceless. LOVE IT!
Congratulations! That was the most amazing way to reveal, too! Made me tear up! So excited for all of you!
Hooray!! Can’t wait to see the little man! Congratulations to your family!
AWESOME! Congratulations! Beautiful!
As a mom of 2 boys, welcome to our world I agree with others who have said that boys can be so loving. My prediction though – get in all the cuddles before he starts crawling. I bet once he starts moving, he will never stop trying to keep up with his sisters!
Congratulations to all of you!! What a beautiful video.
A beautiful moment!
Congratulations, Kelle! This is the cutest reveal ever! I teared up watching it and OMG, Lainey is so excited!!!
WOWIE. *tears* So happy for you all. Most Beautifulest Video Ever.
Love it, love it, love it! I had a feeling…
Can’t wait to see what a little boy adds to this great mix!
I just discovered your blog two days ago and I haven’t had the opportunity to delve too much into it but I have read Nella’s birth story twice and wept both times. I love your writing style and I love your photos of your beautiful girls. I checked your blog this morning and saw the video and I thought you were giving your girls a puppy or something. I was pleasantly surprised to see the blue balloon pop out because that means your pregnant (Didn’t know that!) and that you are having a boy! I had a baby boy in February and a girl last January (two babies 12.5 months apart!!!) and it is so amazing a wonderful having a baby boy! I love my little girl with all my heart and wasn’t sure what it would be like to have another child and have that other child of the opposite gender, but there is something so sweet and beautiful about a little boy’s relationship with his mama! Congrats!!!
What an amazing gift to rem by with girls!
HUGE congrats family!!
Presented in amazing Kelle style! A baby boy to fill your already overflowing hearts, congrats!! I have only recently gotten to ‘know’ you and your precious family, and I am positively thrilled for you all. Wishing you every blessing, Jenn ~ mama of five boys <3
**YAY** I am so happy for all 7 of you! This mama to 2 young ladies missed out on having a boy of my own, but I have two younger brothers. Boys are a treat. I can’t wait to watch him grow. I love your videos and getting to hear everyone’s voices. I hope you don’t reveal the name. Choosing a name is so personal without all the extra input. Happy Friday!
Oh my, I’m so happy for your beautiful family. Congrats! He’s going to be one lucky lil man.
What a beautiful reveal…..Congratulations!!!! You will adore a baby boy more than you thought possible.
That was so beautiful and touching. What a lovely way to share the news with your girls. Congratulations to your family!
Yay, yay, yay!!!! So excited for your family. AND you give me hope that, if we ever tried for a third, we might have a baby girl join our household (two boys, so far).
Beautiful, truly beautiful. Thank you for sharing so much of your lives with us. Your family is such an inspiration to me. I have two boys (3 yo and 10 mo) and am thrilled you get to experience more boys in your household. Congratulations. You are truly blessed.
Congratulations! With two of my own, I am a little biased, but boys are just amazing! :0)
That was beautiful and such a great way to document the reveal!
Awwww…. I have chills. Love this post and the way you announced it. God Bless your family!
I couldn’t be more happy for you. Congrats! Boys are awesome (I have one of each) and they looove their mamas.

Congrats! So exciting a little boy!
Tears, chills, you name it – how awesome for you and your family! Thanks for sharing that with all of us, a million congratulations.
I have a daughter and a son – there is something about a little boy and their mama that can’t be described. Just wait.
All the best from Austin, Texas!

Oh I’m sooooo happy for you!! Boys are the best! My son Tommy and my Vivian are 18 months apart. Vivian has Ds too. It’s been a bit like having twins. They are so in love with each other. The other days Tommy was watching a little cartoon where a cat was kissing another cat, and he said ” He’s kissing his mommy?” Those boys are soooo in love with their mommies, there’s nothing like it!!!Congratulations!

Oh my, you will love that baby boy. Let me tell you, I have two sweet girls and we had a baby boy in October— once I got over the little penis between his legs (so strange to look at after being a girl mom for so long) he is so stinking sweet! But busy, busy, busy and he is only crawling. Buckle up and get ready to enjoy the ride!!

Such exciting news!!! I am curious though, did any of you know before the balloon popped out and at what point did Lainey make her sign? And, that baby boy is going to be so doted on. Our youngest is a boy with an older brother and an older sister and he knows he is special!

Congratulations! I loved the announcement!!
Such happy tears! This was beautiful. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful moment!
Hi Kelle,I have been reading your blog for a little while now and came upon it after reading about Nella’s birth story from Momastery. I have been so hooked on your blog and your writing, your family’s story and the way you are telling it. Your writing and photography talent and general outlook on live is inspiring. I am learning a lot from you as I parent my 4 young girls. Thank you for giving the gift of telling your story to so many people and being so open with all your ups and downs.
I am so happy for you and your family during this amazing time of pregnancy and that you will be blessed with a precious new baby to love and have the joy of raising both girls and a boy. I hope you are feeling well.
Your video was so moving and had me feeling so emotional in a good way. It is beyond words to me how beautiful it is and what a joyful moment you have captured that you will be able to relive for so many years to come and share with your son and daughters. I look forward to hearing more of your pregnancy journey and of his birth story and name to come.
Take care and I so look forward to reading your posts. Have a wonderful weekend. You have just made my weekend better and prompted me to cuddle my girlies a little more
Love, A new and loyal blog fan!Michelle
Squeal!!! What a beautiful video!! Congratulations on Team Blue
Congratulations!!!!!!!! So exciting!!! That was a neat way to announce it, too!
Wow. That was so sweet.You did an amazing job.
another precious litle girl would have been wonderful too, but a little boy? God is good!! xox
What a precious reveal – I love it!
SO SO GREAT!! We have a boy and a girl and I’m due in November with another boy. You will LOVE having a little boy to love on!!!
Congratulations! The look on your face was priceless. What a wonderful way to reveal the babies gender! Boys are just as amazing as girls, except they seem to like danger more than girls. Or so it seems with my 21 month old, he climbs into everything and it’s all about playing in the dirt.
So excited for you Kelle! I have two little boys, ages 11 and 3. They are my world. I can not wait to see how you dress him, your birthday parties for him, his name….oh it’s going to be so so good!!!! Congrats!!!
Just beautiful! Congrats on the soon to be little boy!
a boy! a family book ended by boys. wonderful. congratulations!
:::happy tears::: congratulations!
Congratulations! What a beautiful way to reveal the gender to your girls! Love, Love it (and may want to “steal” it if the Lord decides to bless me with a baby of my own one day.) A little boy- what a blessing!
Congrats to all the Hamptons… I am so excited for you all, it is so amazing to raise children girls or boys, but it is amazing to see just how different they can be at such a young age. I can not wait to be introduced to your new bundle of joy. Are you saving his name until he is born since you didn’t make us wait on the gender? Thanks for sharing.
Aww, I got teary eyed when I saw how excited you three got. How exciting. Congratulations!
Congrats!!!! So happy for you all.
Congratulations!!! Boys are so much fun and so different than the girls. So happy for your family – beautiful video!
TEARS!!! I’m so happy for you! The perfect “little man” addition to your already perfect family!
Those 2 sweet girls are going to have SO much fun with a baby brother
YEY! Congratulations. I’m having a baby boy in November.
I’m so, so happy for you! As a mama to two boys I know you’re going to love this new adventure. Congratulations!
Ok, I felt silly for crying, but not so much now seeing as how I definitely wasn’t the only one! So sweet! I’m so happy for you!!!!!!
Congrats! Beautiful video…made me cry. Happy Friday!
I rarely post, but had to on this one! Tears are flowing! I am also due in February, but don’t know the sex yet. But I have a 3 year old boy and being the mommy to a boy has been the best thing ever! You will love having a boy!

Oh happy baby boy blue day!!!
Awesome! boys are fun!
I just had a feeling that something blue was going to come out of that box! YAY!! I also have 2 girls and a boy and I just love it! 😀 That is totally exciting!
Awwwww, congratulations! A sweet baby boy!
You think you are in love with HIM now…just wait until HE looks into your eyes and you feel HIS endearing love for HIS Mama. HE will steal your bursting heart…I know this to be true…it has happened to me twice and I am so in love with my little MEN! Beautiful reveal!!!

ahh!! congratulations!!!!! you will love, love, LOVE having a baby boy. :0)
Congratulations what fantastic news!
How exciting! Congratulations on the wonderful news…loved your reveal!
Congratulations Kelle!!!! What a blessing. We are also having a baby boy due at the end of January. He will be our fourth boy, and we are thrilled. We have three girls too. You will LOVE, LOVE having a baby boy. I know he has already stolen your heart. LOVE the way you chose to reveal his gender. You are very creative!!!! Many blessings to you and your whole family.
Had a complete visceral reaction and promptly burst into tears as the blue balloon popped out of the box. My manfriend laughed and rubbed my back. “You’ve never met her, you know that.” My reply? “Yes but she let us know her.” Thank you for sharing your beautiful news.
Oh gosh I’m crying because that video was beautiful!!
Congratulations on your bundle of blue!!
I have chills! Congrats!!!
Yeahhhhhhhh! I have two boys and that is all I know about raising, they are so precious! I love coming to your blog and get my fix on raising girls…because I never got to have one. Congrats, you are a special mama!
my guess was right.
Totally crying right now – your joy is my joy. To have both girls and boys is such a blessing. I have 3 boys, then the little girl suprised us. I am so happy for your family! Hugs!
-Jenny in Iowa
My 3.5 year old son said “I didn’t like that video. They let the balloon go. Why were they happy to let the balloon go?” – obviously we’ve drilled it in to him well that you need to hold on tight to your helium balloon!
And then five minutes later while doing something completely different he says “I know! The balloon had a long string!”. I asked if that meant they didn’t really let it go, and he said “Yes, that is why they were happy”. Ha!
Congratulations on a little boy soon to make his way into the world.
Huge congratulations. What a wonderful treasure and such fun new things to experience.
Kelle, I’m so thrilled for you and Brett, a little boy, a little brother for Lainey, Nella, Austyn and Brandyn, how wonderful!Thanks for sharing the news with us. Looking forward to “meeting” your little man next year. Love and best wishes to all the Hamptons!xxoo
Definitely a happy Friday. Best wishes to you all, loved hearing Lainey announce the news.
Just found out today that I’m having my 4th girl! Congrats on your boy (I have 2 of those as well), you will thoroughly enjoy it, there is nothing like a Mother/Son bond.
….cuts straight to my heart! Soooo happy for all of you!
Congratulations Kelle! Love the pictures/video clips and MUSIC!!! Who sings that?
Congrats to your beautiful family. I don’t think I have seen anything more adorable than this in a while! What a lucky little guy he is!
congratulations can you link the song it’s lovely..
That seriously made my cry! Congrats!!!
oh, that made me cry…so excited for all of you!!
That is by far the coolest way to reveal I’ve ever imagined! Did you know? Or is that how you found out too? I love it! Congratulations!!
Congratulations! You will love being a mommy to a boy!
Wow, wow, wow, i cannot believe my “friend” in Florida is having a little man. I am happy for you.
I happen to be partial to little boys 😉 I have two of my own that I adore. You are going to have fun!!!
Spontaneously clapped and said “OH! YAAAY!” when seeing the blue balloon emerge while watching this — with headphones on — and my 2 teenagers looked at me. Then we all watched it together. Awesome how your generous sharing of your love for your family and life can so affect all of us; truly shared your joy — Thank you Kelle! CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF YOU AND WELCOME SOON BEAUTIFUL BABY BOY!
What a creative way to reveal the gender! Congratulations on your sweet baby boy!
Ohhh Kelle, congratulations!! Those girls are going to be such good sisters. This makes my heart melt!
Congratulations! Those baby boys are the BEST!!! There is a special bond between a mama and her boy–you can’t explain it! I just had my 3rd and it was a 2nd boy–it makes me smile just typing this. Fun new adventures await you…
So happy for you and such a beautiful video!!!
I told you! I knew it!! you are such an inspiration, congratulations!!
A-mazing! Love, love, love! And many congrats…
Awesome! A little boy is a new and wonderful kind of love. And Nella is going to LOVE having a little bubba.
A boy! Congrats Hamptons! Precious reveal – love Lainey’s little voice.
Congratulations to you and your family. New life is such a blessing – looking forward to celebrating it with you here!
That is incredible news. There is nothing like a little boy. They are so tender hearted. Congratulations! You are in for a sweet surprise:)
You’re already obviously so in love with being a mom, but having a boy is going to bring it to a whole new level.
I just had a little girl after two boys this past February. I’d considered myself a “boy mom” until that ultrasound and was equally terrified and excited about the new adventure I was about to embark on. I’d heard the warnings from friends about the chaos that ensues with three little ones. Let me tell you, there are great things ahead! Yes, it gets crazier, there is more laundry, more juggling. It gets louder. More demanding. The house never gets clean. There is so much joy! A warm little body to fall asleep in your lap, milky breath, tiny little fingers to wrap around your pinky. The girls will never stop amazing you as they grow into big and bigger sister roles. And when things settle down one afternoon and you have all three snuggled up next to you on the couch or you’re watching all three splashing around the tub, playing like they’ve never known life without each other, it’ll hit you. That painful, joyful feeling. Where you’ll want to freeze time. And you’ll think, this. This is what it’s all about.Many congrats!
Congratulations Hampton family!
Kelle, thank you for letting us celebrate with you. (although I have to admit at first I thought you were giving the girls a new puppy… duh! when I saw the balloon I knew what you were saying). Hope you continue to feel well and joyful during this special time.
Yay! Enjoy the quiet crafting and sit-down conversational moments (I sometimes feel when gazing at your home-life photographs like i’m looking at pictures of a faraway galaxy) while you can, for soon it’ll be all chaos, climbing, zooming, destruction and sound-effects. Fun for sure, but completely cra–zy. xo Mom to Boys
What a beautiful reveal and a huge congratulations on your sweet baby boy!!!
i know it might be impossible to believe- but you will have a whole new kind of ‘love’ for your little boy- they are other worldly and full of puppy dog tails and pockets of snails. my son’s love for me is beautifully mimicked in how he sees his father love me… it. is. amazing.
Congrats! I love that reveal.
My heart is bursting with joy for you and your family. I hear Mary Oliver’s voice in the back of my mind!
Congratulations!! That was an amazing reveal 😀
Congratulations!! Boys are wonderful
Yay!!!!! so happy for you!!
How beautiful! Many congratulations on your SUN, I mean SON!I love the ending where you grab hold onto the string and let it go, free it. It’s exactly what I have been pondering this week, how we have to continuously let are children go, so they can grow. Even birthing your child, is the biggest letting go of them all and it’s just the start!Congratulations!
I about cried watching that. Congrats on your first son…they love their momma like no other.
Little boys are super awesome. Congrats to all of you.
Congratulations! I am so happy for you and your family. I loved the video announcement…great idea!!
I will watch this no less than 542 times. Jeeez – that was awesome.
I love, love, love this video! It totally made me tear up! I have a four year old girl and 17 month old boy. I was nervous at first for a boy but totally love it now! They really do steal your heart away! Congrats to you and your beautiful family! Wish I had a wonderful video like this one! You are so creative!
Tears. Congrats. Little boys are too precious. I had three and just had my special baby girl. It’s so nice to experience both genders. What a gorgeous reveal.
This was precious! You are going to love a baby boy so so much. I have a girl and a boy, both so fun to watch growing up blessings to you you and your family!

Kelle, I am so happy for you! I’m 7weeks postpartum and still full of hormonal emotions myself. Your video made me want to cry, lol. You will love having a boy. I had 2boys back-to-back and just had a daughter. I am so grateful that I’ve been able to experience what having sons and now a daughter will be like. Now you will too! Congratultions to you, Brett, the girls and your step-sons.
Congratulations on having a wee boy!! Boys are awesome and he will totally rock your family! Blessingsw on your family!!
Mama Hampton, your baby will be delicious regardless of the colour of its plumage, but delighted and so very touched to share the joy you are expecting a boy baby. Bliss be you and yours hon xxxxx

Congratulations! What a happy Friday!
That was beautiful!! Thank you for sharing that special news with us – congratulations to all six of you! We are having an ultrasound and finding out the gender of our own little one on Tuesday…I cannot wait!
Congrats Kelle on a new little soul to love…especially a son, wow!
You have so much to look forward to in a little boy. And while I didn’t have boys…my sister who is no longer here does and I feel if I had a son, they’d be what it’s like.
I love them to bits, they bring me so much joy….so I can only imagine how excited you are.
Enjoy this new chapter in your lives…I’m loving your writing lately, its raw and full of stuff you can get your teeth in…congrats on that too!!
Sending love from down under

Simply beautiful! I had a boy after 4 girls and was very nervous about it! Didn’t think I would know what to do:). Our little guy is amazing! I was nervous for nothing! Enjoy, you have a beautiful family!
Kelle,I’m so excited for you! I also have two girls and a boy. You will be so in love….
Such a beautiful video and what a great idea for how to tell your girls. I have a baby boy who’s turing one next week and another baby due in April (not sure what gender yet) – I’m so excited for you and your family! Happy pregnancy!
I already saw someone mention it on Twitter, so I knew it was a boy, but I cried anyway. What a beautiful video.
love it! congratulations to you and your beautiful family!
Great. Now my daughter says we need a pink balloon for our girl on the way…
Very cute! Congrats!
YAY! I can’t wait to see another adorable Hampton boy Congratulations!!!
Crying, too! We had our boy last October after having a girl, and I could not be more in love with the differences and the different ways I love them. Looking forward to seeing the dynamics in your lives, too.
Congratulations! I had a feeling it was going to be a boy (: I bet the older boys will have a blast teaching him all sorts of ‘guy’ things.
So HAPPY for you! And a tad jealous. Lol. That’s so great to have a reveal like that. The girls were prec and Lainey’s face was priceless. Love it!
I want to have one more in hopes of a boy but either would thrill me, I want to keep it a secret though till the day of. I don’t even want to know. Love it!
that is sooo special!! I love it!
I have two girls and my youngest is a boy. He is the sweetest, most darling thing. I am so excited to see you adding a sweet boy to your little crew. Loved the video.

You photographed our family right after you found out you were pregnant with Nella and I was newly pregnant with our second baby girl as well. Since then we adopted our final bookend when we brought our precious baby boy home from Ethiopia. I cherish the family photos we have- and I cherish them even more knowing that they were captured by such a beautiful woman. Blessings and best wishes to you and your growing family. Marissa Hess
Such exciting news, thanks for sharing it with us.
What a beautiful reveal! Confession: I cried a little bit! Congratulations on the beautiful baby brother those sweet girls will have! And oh my goodness, Lainey talks just as incredibly cute as she is!!
I just got chills too! So adorable, I especially loved when you were all looking in the box but we couldn’t see yet—LOVE
Congrats to you and your family
CONGRATS!!! I know you will be an amazing mommy to this little boy! You do so perfect with Lainey and Nella! Pray for m husband and I so we can start our family and hopefully be as successful at raising beautiful children as you!
We don’t really do a big ‘reveal’ of our baby’s gender here in the UK. So I watched the video thinking ‘what is she up to?’ Ahhhhhh a big quilt in a field and a balloon for the girls to play with. How lovely. Then Lainey held up her sign and I nearly threw my laptop on the floor, I sat up so quick! Then I had to watch it again so I could really appreciate it. Just beautiful. Congratulations.
Aw, love to you and your family! Congratulations and many blessings!
Congratulations! I loved the video. SO sweet. You looked beyond beautiful. Boys are amazing. So different than girls…get ready for a ride!
