An influencer couple revealed their child’s gender on Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world

September 11, 2020

The family recently posted a video titled “THE BIGGEST BABY GENDER REVEAL EVER (Burj Khalifa) /اكبر حفلة معرفة جنس مولود في العالم.”
The video, which was published on September 8, has amassed over 16 million views to date. Anas Marwah posted a shorter cut of the gender reveal on Instagram. Gender reveal events and parties have come into the spotlight once again after one led to the El Dorado Fire in California, which has burned over 13,500 acres since it began on Saturday, September 5, according to ABC7. شكرا لانكم جزء من حياتنا، قصتنا و كل شي نسويه! Congratulations @AnasMarwah and @AsalaMaleh — Burj Khalifa (@BurjKhalifa) September 9, 2020

After the video began to go viral online, people online speculated that the couple had paid an extravagant sum (numbers circulated typically around $100,000 USD) for the event. A statement from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said that law enforcement had determined that a “smoke generating pyrotechnic device, used during a gender reveal party” was the cause of the fire. The official Instagram and Twitter accounts for the Burj Khalifa also posted about the gender reveal, writing, “The big news just can’t get bigger than this as the world’s tallest building lights up to reveal the biggest gender reveal ever! Finally, the tower lights up bright blue, displaying the words, “It’s a boy!” and later, “Congratulations Anasala family.” 

عايلة انصالة شكرا لكم على حبكم!! Congratulations @AnasMarwah and @AsalaMaleh.”

The big news just can’t get bigger than this as the world’s tallest building lights up to reveal the biggest gender reveal ever! ITS A BOY🙏 @emaardubai @burjkhalifa @mydubai @thedubaimall @namshi thank you for welcoming us here, being a part of our family, and most importantly this amazing surprise! In a statement to Insider, the family’s management team said that the couple “didn’t pay any amount to any entity to make this happen” and that “everything being said are rumours.” They did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment about how the event was made possible. Anasala Family is a YouTube channel that features husband and wife Anas Marwah and Asala Maleh, as well as daughter Mila Marwah. A video depicting the event was posted just days after a California gender reveal party sparked a fire that has consumed over 13,500 acres. As Insider’s Canela López writes, gender reveal parties have been criticized for the pressure they can place on children who do not identify with the gender they were assigned at birth.
