Big brother devastated to learn he is getting three new sisters

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) -- Typically, learning the gender of your baby is a happy time. When Missy and Matthew Van Vels learned they were having triplets, they wanted to surprise their 5-year-old son Nolan with the gender reveal.

He was not thrilled with the results, and they caught it all on video.

Missy Van Vels is 17 weeks pregnant with triplets. On Monday, she learned that she was having all girls. She and her husband Matthew came up with a creative way to tell their son about it. They put three pink balloons in three different bags, and fired up the camera.

Nolan says he was hoping for at least two brothers and one girl.

He opened the first bag, and the balloon was pink. He opened the second bag, and the balloon was pink. That means two sisters. He opened the last bag... and it's pink. It was another girl.

Nolan was more than a little disappointed, and his reaction was priceless.

Matthew Van Vels said they consoled Nolan, but no big brother wants to learn he is getting three new sisters at once.

After the girls are born, the Van Vels family will grow from four to seven.
