Dubai: A UAE-based Syrian influencers couple wanted the world to see the gender of their unborn baby, and what better way to do that than on the side of the world’s tallest tower, Burj Khalifa, Dubai.
Famous YouTubers Anas and Asala Marwah hosted a gender reveal party at Burj Khalifa last week. The couple learned the sex of their second child when “It’s a boy!” was projected on the side of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
The couple said they didn’t knew the child’s gender before the big reveal, and said the doctor’s confirmation was handed directly to the people organising the light show at Burj Khalifa.
The couple has posted the video on their Instagram and YouTube channel ‘Anasala Family’ with over 8.01 M and the video started surfacing online.

Gender reveal parties are not new – they were popularised in the late 2000s. Instances of expecting couples getting creative to reveal the gender of their unborn baby to friends and family have. There are a section of people who criticise such events calling them as an unnecessary display of wealth, while others criticise them for stunts which can be potentially dangerous.
According to reports, the display of their baby’s gender on Burj Khalifa has cost them over $100,000 which is equal to 73 Lakhs approximately.
A video that the social media stars shared on YouTube shows the tower light up in blue after a dramatic countdown.
Reactions to their gender reveal video have been huge – but not all the reactions have been positive. While the video garnered over 15 million views on YouTube, many criticised the couple for the lavish gender reveal event.
