NEW BRITAIN – As many may know, New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart-Mutone and husband Domenic are expecting a bundle of joy this summer. Friday at noon they will be revealing the gender of their little one on Facebook.
“These last few weeks have been a little unsettling to say the least. I figured we could all use something to smile about,” Stewart said.
To add community participation a poll was created on Facebook and Twitter to guess the baby’s gender.
“We need some happy news this week! How about a Mayoral gender reveal?! What do you think baby Mayor will be? Vote below!” Stewart posted on her Facebook page.
As of Thursday the post received 119 comments.
“What do you think we are having? #MayorsGenderReveal,” Stewart also posted on Twitter.
To vote boy her Twitter followers could click the boy option which contained a Baby boy and bottle emoji. To vote girl followers could click the girl option which contained a little girl and bow emoji.
Over 2,000 people responded to the poll with 52 percent of respondents predicting the mayor will have a girl, while 48 percent predict she will have a boy.
“Wow, it’s pretty close,” Stewart commented on the Facebook poll.
