Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and his wife, Julie, used their family dog earlier this month to announce they were expecting their first child this September.
Friday, they learned their baby's gender, and to make that news public they used another unusual prop - a football.
The Redskins' Twitter account shared footage of the stunt, which revealed the couple are expecting a boy.
Given how he makes his living, we are not sure about Cousins' throw. But we give him and Julie an A-plus for creativity in social media.
