A six-year-old Arizona boy has achieved Internet fame after a video of him reacting to news he'll have a new little sister went viral.

The video shows Gunner Mertlich, along with his sisters Paisley and Harper, preparing to cut into a cake that will reveal the gender of their newest family member.

"I think it's a boy," Gunner tells his father Jason.

But the cheery tone of the video takes a dramatic turn as soon as Gunner slices the cake to reveal a bright pink center. The boy bursts into tears, crying, "I knew it was a girl!"

"It's a girl! It's a girl! It's a girl ... It's a girl .. awe... awe... I knew it was a girl. I didn't want a girl! I don't want a girl! I don't want to eat the cake! I don't want a girl cake!"

Since it was posted March 22, the You Tube clip has gone viral, seen more than 1.6 million times.

In an interview with Fox News Channel, Gunner seemed to have come to terms with the news, saying he was "happy" about his new little sister.
