Brett Stills, a new dad from Jonesboro, Arkansas, became a viral sensation when his partner, Amanda Roelofs, shared photos of his hilariously horrified expression while she was in labor.
The couple welcomed their third child, Brynlee Mae Sills, on July 8, with Brett supporting Amanda throughout the entire process.
The amusing images left the internet in stitches, capturing the candid and relatable moments of childbirth.
When Amanda uploaded photos of the moment their daughter was born to Facebook, the terrified expression on Brett’s face stole the spotlight and became the center of attention.
The photos captured Amanda pushing their daughter while Brett supported her leg, and his horrified expression was evident from the grimace on his face.
‘”You didn’t see everything I seen,”‘ Amanda humorously captioned the post, quoting Brett.
The candid images entertained thousands of people, who flooded the comment section with their reactions. Some found the pictures to be priceless, while others couldn’t stop laughing at Brett’s expression, joking that it’s one more reason why men aren’t giving birth. Many related to Brett’s reaction and shared their own experiences or tagged friends, teasing that they might have a similar expression during childbirth.
Another person humorously admitted, ‘You better than me I tried to run out the room.’
During the discussion with the Today show, Amanda shared that while going through the photos, she couldn’t help but start laughing upon discovering Brett’s reaction. The viral post has certainly brought smiles to many faces.
Amanda’s sister-in-law encouraged her to share the photos online, saying they could go viral. Brett humorously shared his thoughts at the time, ‘I was just looking at her head – it went from being baseball size to a freaking cantaloupe.’
Although it wasn’t Brett’s first time in the delivery room, he had never actually looked down during the process before, always opting to turn away. This time, the doctor involved him more, and Amanda found it to be a great experience.
Despite Brett’s “squeamish” reaction, Amanda reassured that he is still the best dad. She wasn’t offended at all by his expression and found the comments on the photos amusing. The viral post has been met with humor and understanding from others who can relate to the emotions and surprises that come with childbirth.
