Man Takes Selfie With Wife In The Throes of Labor, Lives To Tell The Tale

On Monday, Reddit user gilsolano12 took a selfie while his wife was mid-labor, posting it to the internet with the 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.” By the grace of a benevolent god, perhaps, or his wife’s infinite patience, this man was spared from what I assume would’ve been a swift and just death.

According to the Daily Mail, which picked up the story from Reddit, Solano showed the picture to his wife “in between pushes,” and she took it all in stride. “Now I’m reading her all of you guys comments while she feeds our healthy 7 lbs. 6 oz. girl,” he wrote. And according to Facebook, his wife didn’t leave him in the parking lot while she drove off with their newborn, who, BTW, is “just as pretty as her mother.”
