No fireworks, no explosions, no problem.


Last month, Ashley Tisdale announced that she is expecting her first child with her husband, Christopher French. Today, Tisdale revealed, via a cake, that the new arrival will be a girl. In her caption, Tisdale offered a tongue-in-cheek response to over-the-top gender reveals, which often involve pyrotechnics, colored smoke, and, in one case last September, spiraled out of control and caused a wildfire in California.

Tisdale's Instagram gallery shows her and French cutting into a white cake to reveal its pink interior. She called the reveal her "favorite day EVER."

"This year has obviously been hard. For so many. Ups and downs, and an emotional roller coaster. I think this day was by far my favorite day EVER! I cried I was so happy," she wrote, before adding, "Ps for all you people going above and beyond for gender reveal parties. A cake with the color inside is JUST as rewarding as fireworks but SAFER!"

In a recent blog post, Tisdale let her readers in on how she's handling her pregnancy so far. She described it as feeling like she's had the stomach flu for several months.

"It hasn't been an easy first trimester, but everyone is different and I know there are people who've had it way worse," she wrote. "I definitely fall somewhere in the middle where I didn't just have nausea, but threw up a couple of times and felt like I've had stomach flu for three months (Lol!)."
