A photo of an exhausted mom enjoying some sleep next to her husband with their baby on his chest has made some people think this father is a dream come true—while others think it's going to get him in trouble.
Redbook shared the candid picture that captured the real-life moment of the new parents which Avid Climber loaded on Imgur.
The husband and new father posted:
The dad proudly said:
“After winning a battle with testicular cancer last year we finally got our firstborn son. Pro tip: Real men take care of their baby while mommy takes as many naps as she needs. She's been through an ordeal! Suck it up, guys, and be her dream husband!”
The family picture had responses coming from all sides, with some celebrating the amazing dad move:
“You probably won't see this little ol' comment buy you, sir, are amazing. And I love you a little bit.”
“I could cry. This is the most romantic thing a dad can do. I refuse to have more kids because I know I'll be doing it on my own again.”
“Thats some next level white knighthood right there.”
“Pro dad tip right there!”
“Thank you for letting Mom sleep!!”
“seeing parents work together (something I never got to experience from my own) makes me hopeful for your sweet baby. Thank you”
“Yes! More naps = Happier times.”
“When it gets harder, look at this picture and remember how things should be. You rock, and im your fan.”
Others had fun trying to prepare him for what would happen when his wife found out what he did:
“Hey ”dream husband“, she's going to kill you for sharing a pic of her sleeping.”
“Congrats man enjoy it. Hope your wife doesn't kill you too badly for including her in the pic though”
“her sleeping face tells me that you're gonna hear it when she finds out you put this online. cheers!”
“Congratulations on having a baby! And, hopefully Mommy doesn't see this.”
“she going to get you when you sleep”
“What an awesome husband. But she really is going to kill him...”
Maybe he will survive after all, as CommanderCassandra wrote:
“She won't kill you. Mom, dad and baby are all perfect in this photo.”
The sleeping wife did score a compliment, so maybe that will help dad if he does get into trouble.
“As a woman, I wish I looked that hot while sleeping.”
New baby, nap time and a compliment should make everything better if she was thinking about taking revenge on her husband over the photo. Either way, at least she got some sleep out of it.
