The photo has currently been retweeted over 42,000 times and a meme has even been born, with Whiter being dubbed 'pregnant teacher selfie guy' and getting photoshopped onto various other inappropriate selfie scenes.
Whiter's teacher, Susana Halleck, started having contractions during class but was determined to not be in labour after a visit to the hospital. Halleck has taken the photo in good spirits, with her sister-in-law tweeting at Whiter- "everyone is going crazy over it!"
According to Florida's News 10, Whiter claims that the reason he took the 'selfie' is that Halleck is "a great teacher" and he wanted to "capture the memorable moment".
