“Whoever claimed that fathers have an easy time during their partners’ labor? Recent viral photos from a couple who just welcomed their third child reveal that dads are genuinely concerned and utterly astonished by the childbirth process.
In the past, fathers were prohibited from the delivery room, leaving them to wait outside, hoping for a positive outcome for both the mother and child. Nowadays, the norm has shifted, allowing fathers to witness the entire birthing process. The outcomes, as seen in this couple’s case, can sometimes be quite comical.
Amanda Renee and her partner Brett Sillis captured hearts with their delivery room photos, not just because they became parents for the third time, but due to Brett’s uproarious facial expressions. Many find his emotions to be truly priceless. Despite appearing repulsed by the childbirth process, his wife reassures that she’s not at all offended. She shares that amidst the intensity of bringing a baby into the world, she didn’t even notice her husband’s reactions.
It was only upon reviewing the photos later that they realized the genuine value of Brett’s expressions. Amanda exclaimed, “We didn’t even glance at them until I returned to the room, and then I thought, ‘I have to share these!'” The joyful couple, along with their newborn daughter, is now back home, relishing quality time together while delighting in Brett’s delivery room expressions.
The image garnered widespread adoration, particularly from men who empathize with Brett. The image has been shared over 6,000 times. One father humorously noted, “This was totally me.”
Anecdotes continued to pour in: “This is exactly why, when my husband wanted to ‘observe,’ I tightly closed my knees and told him he had to be by my head, or I wouldn’t push!” Another mother chimed in, “Haha! I believe all men make these faces. Just had our baby six weeks ago, and my husband could only manage to look at my face. My delivery was a quick 15 minutes, and my doula had to nudge him to look at the baby since he feared he might faint from all the ‘stuff’ happening. Congratulations, mom!” Yet another person shared.
Congratulations to the elated couple on their latest family addition. Don’t hesitate to SHARE this story with your loved ones on Facebook.”
