Because sometimes popping pink and blue balloons just won't cut it.

Shay Mitchell recently announced she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Matte Babel and the internet could barely contain their excitement for her. The Pretty Little Liars star revealed the happy news with a professional maternity photoshoot showing off her baby bump. Well, if you thought that was extra, just wait until you get a glimpse of her gender reveal.

The You actress shared a snippet of the moment she discovered her baby's gender on her YouTube channel. The event was thrown for her by her assistant, who recruited two Power Rangers (yes... Power Rangers) to deliver the news.

After calling their families to predict their baby's gender, Shay and Matte were just chilling in the garden. And then, out comes two Power Rangers – one in pink and one in blue – who engage in a Mortal Kombat style fight to the death on their lawn with Shay's confused dog Angel looking on.

"Never in the history of gender reveals have I seen Power Rangers," she says to camera.

A struggle ensues until both Power Rangers end up in the pool. However, it's the pink Power Ranger that manages to overcome the blue, meaning they're expecting a little girl.

Shay and Matte were shook because they were convinced they would be having a baby boy. Before the reveal, Shay said: "I truly think I am having boy because, ugh, just the retribution of having a girl.
