She posted:

“Stop it. Stop having these stupid parties. For the love of God, stop burning things down to tell everyone about your kid's penis. No one cares but you. Toxic masculinity is men thinking they need to explode something because simply enjoying a baby party is for sissies.”

This is not the first time Jenna has spoken about the parties. In another Facebook post in 2019, she bashed the events after her child for whom the 2008 reveal was held came out as non-binary.

She said:

“Who cares what gender the baby is? Assigning focus on gender at birth leaves out so much of their potential and talents that have nothing to do with what is between their legs. Plot twist, the world’s first gender-reveal party baby is a girl who wears suits!”

The influencer was also worried about her image after her post made it to the media in the US.
