Man takes selfie while wife gives birth to child in background

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - The birth of a child is a moment that parents never forget.

Well, thanks to one husband’s in-the-moment selfie, one wife will definitely not forget a single thing.

The photo was posted to Reddit and is going viral. A lot of users congratulated the man, but some pointed out right away that he was going to be in trouble when he gets home.

The man, whose username on Reddit is gisolano12, shared the image with the following caption:

“My wife wanted to make sure that someone took a picture of the expression on our faces when our daughter was born today. So I took one.”

“Yeah, I actually took this pic to send to her brothers who kept asking how it was going,” he replied to someone on Reddit. “I showed it to her in between pushes and she cracked up. Now I’m reading her all of you guys comments while she feeds our healthy 7lb 6 oz girl.

“P.S. Her mom took pics of our reactions 10 mins later :)”

Another dad on the site added: “Congratulations man!I just had my first child this morning as well, what a surreal and amazing feeling huh?”
