Ray J and Princess Love have given “blue skies ahead” a whole new meaning!

The rapper, 38, and his wife announced on Tuesday that their second child on the way will be a boy, enlisting the help of their 17-month-old daughter Melody Love — and a helicopter! — for the big reveal.

“We’re about to hop on the chopper. They’re going to lay down the smoke. It could be pink or blue,” Ray J said in a video on his Instagram account. “We’re going to find out right now, way up in the air.”

The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star ended up boarding the helicopter without his family since the noise “was too loud for” Melody’s ears, and got the surprise of his life once he was airborne.

“I already took a peek, and Ray’s gonna go find out,” Love said, before the clip cut to the dad-to-be inside the chopper, where he told the camera, “Are we having a boy or a girl? We’ll know in a second!”

Soon, the slowed-down footage showed blue smoke pouring from beneath the helicopter as mountains, winding roads and a blue sky could be seen among the picturesque backdrop.

“Whoa! We’re having a boy! Hey!” said the excited star. “We’re having a boy!”
