In Her postShe explained: “I am not close with my family. I live in a different state, so I don’t have much contact with them. My brother got married last weekend and invited me.

“After my husband and I separated recently, I discovered I was pregnant. My extended family was unaware of the separation and the pregnancy. When we spoke over the phone before the wedding I revealed to my brother that I was pregnant. He congratulated us and that was about it. The pregnancy was also known to my parents.

“I am 7 months pregnant right now and getting a divorce. When I showed up at the wedding, everyone was super shocked to see me pregnant and alone there. A lot of questions followed, I answered them with as little info as possible and that was it.”

The wedding was marred by the fact that the priest officiating the ceremony mentioned the woman’s pregnancy.

The situation reached boiling point when her brother made a comment on his. “nephew”The woman was shocked to learn that she was actually pregnant with a baby girl.

She stated: “During the ceremony, the priest mentioned my pregnancy to make a joke about what’s next for the bride and groom. Something like ‘and after [my] baby, hopefully, many more will join this beautiful family.’

“The bride was p***ed off because now everyone knew I was pregnant. My brother asked me if I wanted to take a picture with my favorite sister, and my first nephew, during the photo taking portion of the reception. I laughed and replied “niece actually” and he was very happy.

“The bride came to me later and called me an a**hole for upstaging her wedding with not just my pregnancy but also the ‘baby gender announcement’.

“Her family is evidently on her side. My brother believes she is acting crazy. I did nothing wrong. And my parents think that I should have disclosed to people that I was expecting before the wedding.”

Commenters on the Reddit post are firmly on the woman’s side, as many insist she wouldn’t have been able to hide her pregnancy even if she wanted to.

And some even put blame on the priest, stating that he shouldn’t have mentioned her pregnancy for seemingly no reason.

One person said: “The priest … yeah, the priest is the a**hole of the story. The ceremony should not have mentioned the pregnant woman. It was totally outlandish.”

While another added: “You didn’t intend to upstage anyone. The gender comment was made only in passing. You would be an a**hole if you stood up in the middle of the reception and announced the gender to everyone. Your presence does not diminish her special day.”
