Garth Brooks Reveals The Gender Of This Couple's Baby On Stage, Then Offers To Pay The Baby's College Tuition

"We would just like to thank Garth and Trisha for their overwhelming generosity."

It seems as though people are coming up with more and more creative ways to reveal the gender of their baby — but having one of your biggest music idols do it on stage is pretty freakin' cool.

In a post shared on the Love What Matters Facebook page, Wesley Hansen explains that a day before going to a Garth Brooks concert, he and his partner, Katy, headed to their ultrasound. Afterwards, they decided it would be cool to ask Brooks to reveal the gender of their baby, though they knew there was a slim chance of him actually doing it. Still, they thought making a sign for Garth with their request was "worth a shot." 

"Prior to making the sign, I was the one who was skeptical," Hansen writes. "After, Katy made the sign and we were inside the venue, Katy started to say, 'it's never going to happen, let's just open it.' "

To their surprise, Brooks obliged, taking an envelope from their hands. Before opening it, he asks the couple if they have a name for the baby yet, to which they respond: Brooks.

"I've gotta tell you, I'm extremely happy for you because I have three of these," Brooks tells the couple, which means the Hansens are having a daughter. Brooks then adds it's important to remind daughters they "they don't need some stinkin' boy to tell them how cool they are." Amen. 

And finally, Brooks offers an incredible gift:

"We'll make a deal. If I am still alive when Brooks goes to college, we'll pay for her college," he says to the applause of the crowd. 

Like we said: it doesn't get much cooler than that. 

"We would just like to thank Garth and Trisha for their overwhelming generosity and let them know that we appreciate Garth allowing us to be a part of something so special and including it in one of his shows," Hansen concludes in the post.
