A proud dad-to-be has taken the concept of shared parenting to a new level.
When his expecting wife refused to have maternity photos taken, this determined husband wasn't going to miss the moment and took matters into his own hands.
"My wife didn't want to take maternity pictures," explained Reddit user DruishPrincess69, who hails from Austin, Texas originally. "So I hired a photographer and took her place..."
In the photographs the man is pictured eating ice cream out of a tub, lovingly fondling his ‘bump’ and posing on a bed gazing longingly at his stomach.
The pictures have gone viral since they were posted earlier this week. The Reddit post has been commented on over 1,400 times.
"These are the funniest set of pictures I have seen for a long time,” wrote one user.
“As a new dad who had to take maternity pictures recently I find these hilarious!” said another.
