Very excited father-to-be Gil Solano won the internet after taking a perfectly timed delivery room selfie but there were also thousands of netizens who chided him for insensitivity for smiling while his wife was experiencing birth pains.
His expression of glee contrasts perfectly with his wife’s absolute pain – but bashers should know the full story before getting truly angry at this excited guy.
According to Gil, he was only following the instructions of no less than his wife, Sarah. He said, “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.” After the photo went viral, however, Sarah revealed that she meant for someone to capture their expressions after the child was delivered, not during the delivery process but since her husband misunderstood her words out of his own excitement, she appears to have already forgiven him.
As for the baby being delivered, unseen but generally implied in the photo, Eva Nell Solano arrived into this world weighing 7 pounds, 6 ounces – it is no wonder that her mommy looks like she’s having a rather difficult time pushing her out!
Good luck and God bless, pretty baby. We bet your dad’s going to be posting more photos of you for the world to see…
