The mum cried over her “gender disappointment”, she said. In a caption, she wrote: “Me grieving the fact that I’m not getting my baby girl just yet.”

She wrote over the video: “How can I love another boy? Will I be replacing my first son? How can I love two sons?”

Nicole added in the caption for the TikTok video: “Gender disappointment is real. I only felt that way for a day. Now we are beyond excited and thankful.”
