Gender reveal parties – and gender, for that matter – are a construct. From exploding fireworks to a truly wild video involving a grown man dressed as a baby, there have been several over-the-top gender reveal stunts in recent memory. But Villa Italian Kitchen, an Italian restaurant franchise with locations around the country, has taken the cake with its latest offering.
Enter: “Gender Reveal Lasagna,” which is stuffed with cheese that has been dyed either pink or blue. Yes, it’s a lot.

And while this is certainly one cheesy addition to a gender reveal party, it’s not the first elaborate stunt to make waves.
There was also the off-duty Border Patrol agent accidentally started a 47,000-acre wildfire in Arizona when a gender-reveal party went horribly wrong. Then, a couple who lives in Louisiana faced pushback for involving live alligators in their gender reveal. Finally, a dad-to-be broke his ankle at a gender reveal party.
