A man who promised his fianc¨¦e that he¡¯d ¡°light up the sky¡± when revealing the sex of their unborn baby delivered with an epic display of hot-pink illumination.
New Jersey couple Matt Ostergaard, 36, and Adrianna Zbik, 29, were expecting twins,when the mom-to-be lost one of the babies. In an effort to make Zbik smile again, Ostergaard vowed to make the sex reveal of their remaining child an event she wouldn¡¯t forget.
His first idea was to ask the powers that be at New York City¡¯s Empire State Building to light up the monument with either blue or pink colors. However, he quickly learned that it wouldn¡¯t be possible.
So Ostergaard turned to the operators of the SkyWheel, a 187-foot-tall, $12 million Ferris wheel in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The magnificent structure, named the tallest wheel in the eastern United States when it opened in 2011, is powered by 1 million LED lights and has 42 air-conditioned gondolas, according to?NBC News.
And it was the perfect place to reveal that the couple was having a baby girl. ¡°Because we had lost one of the babies, we already knew we were having a girl, but we wanted photos to share with our friends,¡± Ostergaard tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
Zbik, who is seven months pregnant, tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the couple and her future mother-in-law celebrated by riding the SkyWheel, which was lit all night long. ¡°It was gorgeous and pink everywhere,¡± says Zbik. ¡°It was something we¡¯ll never forget.¡±
As for whether the couple has any upcoming elaborate plans, Ostergaard jokes, ¡°For the next baby, I¡¯ll light up the Eiffel Tower.¡±
