Benton gender reveal shakes houses and causes social media sensation |  News


BENTON, Louisiana — A gender reveal party at East Benton on Tuesday night caused a stir on social media, with members of the “Benton LA Town Happenings” Facebook page inquiring about a possible explosion.

“Has anyone felt an explosion around Cypress Lake?” inquired a member of the page.

Many people responded that they had heard or felt an explosion.

This “explosion” turned out to be Tannerite of a gender reveal party along Buffalo Road.

Mum-to-be Kayleigh Morgan responded, saying, “Sorry y’all. We had a gender reveal with a Tannerite.”

Tannerite is an over-the-counter explosive that detonates when hit by a firearm projectile.

A pink explosion indicates a girl is on the way.

Morgan said Wednesday that she and fiancé Jadden White are due to have the baby girl in December. They are getting married in June.
