Proof that a man can be too supportive.
(submitted by John)
This reminds me of the time at work when a co-worker in the cubicle next to me proudly showed me some photos taken of her pregnant body, sans clothing. The photos were professionally taken in good taste for the subject, and I have to admit that she did look very lovely, but it was awkward to offer her any response; I mean, I wasn’t even warned that I would be seeing her completely naked!
I say, give him a Santa hat, Hang a jingle Bell off something and use it for a Holiday Card.
Ho Ho HO !
OMG so creeped out! SOOOOOO creeped out!!! Eww.
Hmmm, I feel creeped out by the way they’re looking down at my comment…….
Most awkward I’ve ever seen. I gotta ask – to whom do you show this photo?
Anyone consider that maybe it was the PHOTOGRAPHERS “vision” to put them in such an awkard position in the nude?
If this is how they want to take their pictures, so be it…
It’s NOT like we are paying for it. Let them be!
I think the idea is classy I guess but the position is a bit akward. He just seems uncomferatble. But the idea is nice, maybe if the position was better, the photo would be MUCH better.
the “nip slip” she provided for the camera is obviously no way accidental.
just curious if the “professional” photographer did the poor Photoshopping job to cover her nipple or if this website did it…
vertical spooning = very awkward photo. this will haunt my dreams.
can’t wait to see the birth announcements!
Whatev, Jen G. I just about fell out my chair when I saw this photo!
I don’t know, I kind of like this picture. In my humble opinion, I gotta give him credit for doing this. But hey, thats just me.
Get over it, SHE is having the baby, not you!
I don’t recall making that statement. is there another person out there with my name?
it would have been funny if she were holding his belly….lol…
My God, is that Tim Wakefield?
I don’t know, my wife is preggers and this photo kinda makes me want to do something similar…maybe we’ll try another position, er, I mean pose!
We’ll be putting this on the kid’s wedding slide show 🙂
I think it’s nice that Anthony Edwards and his wife decided to share that here.
I suppose the camera is going into the delivery room too. 2nd family picture?? Please don’t invite me in.
Well… it would make an interesting Christmas card photo…
didn’t this “pose” get her pregnant????
they are gonna break out this picture to give their child the “birds and the bees” talk 😉
What the heck are they looking at?
Her water just broke.
I think that dude was my manager when I worked at Kinko’s. Hey Frank! Way to go!
You are my hero. i also send my congratulations.
Ugh! This is just wrong in everyway. I enjoyed my pregnancies but I did not like any photo taken of me during that time. I can’t imagine seeing me in all my bloated glory! Eeeewwww!!! And why the husband needs to be naked too?? It’s beyond weird and awkward.
On a different note, it sure made me laugh!!!!
Yeah, this one just doesn’t do it for me. As I stated in a previous post that seems to have been mysteriously deleted, just because something is in black in white doesn’t make it suddenly artistic or profound. There’s really no way around this but to say it’s awkward. Ultimately if fails as an artistic piece I think.
And for all those out there who assume that anyone who disagrees with them on this must be a teenager: I’m 40 and married with children.
Some things are better left in pajamas
Wow, for a moment, I thought this was a picture of the conception……
I’m trying not to wake the neighborhood with my laughing, I can’t even breathe.
LOL (thanks for that)
It’s gotta be a joke right?? They can’t be serious??
We absolutely LOVE this photo and hope to reproduce it now that we are old and just fat! Definitely in the Christmas Card Catagory!!!!!!!!
oh that is awesome. please post it on here.
..Oh, God, please DON’T!!
omg, I almost lost my balance and fell over when I read that. hahahahaha!
Can I possibly get on your Christmas card mailing list?
Wait . . . you almost lost your balance? I, personally, like to sit down when I’m on the computer. If you can’t keep your balance while standning and typing, please sit down! Don’t hurt yourself!
I wouldn’t even trust you’ll be safe with that Christmas card, so I’ll make sure they cancel your mail request.
Well now you have given me a great idea…
I just got a musical elf hat, and I’m thinking me and hubby in those hats and nothing else would be great for Christmas greetings.
Guess I am alone then that when I was pregnant – I felt sexier than ever. For those of you moms who just feel ‘I just used my reproductive system’ and not that you did something amazing, I feel for you.
Besides- this is a photograph- it is not a picture of a photograph on a wall. I wonder if they even plan to show their future babies?
In anycase- I stand firm. Not awkward.
HAHHAAA, you have no humor…..the fact that they went to the studio to commit this crime is hilarious!! THis picture is painfully ACKWARD.
Being pregnant was one of my favourite stages in life – but I certainly didn’t feel like Mother Earth! After all, about 50 trillion women have lived in the history of the world, so it makes me a little less special, you know?
Gotta keep the species going. And these two did their part, recording it for future posterity. Boy did they ever.
You know what everyone is entitled to feel the way they want to, it is your GOD given right, and if you stop and think about it, if everyone was exactly the same, did the exact same thing everywhere everyday, think how boring life would be !!! IT TAKES ALL KINDS TO MAKE THE WORLD GO AROUND!!!
Chill with your CAPS. WE ARE ALL SMART ENOUGH TO GET YOUR MESSAGE WITHOUT YOUR CAPS! And why don’t you keep “GOD” out of it while you’re at it. God given right? What are you smoking? Since when did “GOD” start handing out rights. Derrrrrrrrrrrr
What are they starring at?
They are kind of hot, you have to admit.
And HE SHAVED! Enough said
and YOU noticed…
I’ve been pregnant and see the pregnant body as very beautiful…but this is just plain goofy :oS
“And here’s how we got you sweetheart…”
Also…flat lighting is not the most flattering choice for a portrait like this. Some well placed shadows could have helped make this portrait less awkward…maybe….
I don’t think lighting is the key issue here…
ok…awkward to the nth degree!
can you imagine if your parents had this picture made when you were a fetus then sprang it on you at your sweet 16 bday. yikes.
Totally. If my parents took a picture like this when they were pregnant with me and showed it to me later I would think it was ridiculous…and awkward.
OMG and full sized on a CAKE!
How awkward must the photographer have felt ?!?!
Forget cow bell, this pic needs more compound bow!!!
Ahahahaha!!! The compound bows!!! Lol Love it!
what is a compound bow….
Where is the compound bow?
actually, they are looking down at the compound bow…
I think the answer of their love is a baby!
Oh… my… God
It would have seemed weird if he was dressed or even partially dressed, but seems even weirder with him naked… its just a no win all around.
As for the cross-bow troll… As mom used to say about schoolyard bullies and pests, just ignore them because it’s attention they’re looking for.
I don’t know- seems to me that most of you are 14 years old or something. Those of us who have gone through pregnancy and have children know how beautiful it is to be pregnant. Also those of us with spouses who appreciate our bodies, our children, and our ability to do something as incredible as produce another human being also know how beautiful it is.
While perhaps not everyones cup of tea, definitely not an awkward photo. They both seem to be very at ease.
You’re kidding, right?
I’m much older than 14 and this is most definitely awkward no matter how old you are…Who does that…
This guy is just “nuts” or were are they?
hahaha! My thoughts exactly kim! I have 3 kids; loved my prego belly. I’ve seen some really cute prego belly photos. But this is just…..uncomfortable.
Although I agree with JenG’s comments in regards to the beauty of pregnancy and appreciating my wife’s body and changes and such… I DO NOT agree with the fact that you should go to some photographer and have them photograph that. Have your wife photographed by you while in the privacy of your own home. This is awkward and the child in the belly doesn’t need to see this later in life either. It’s not going to be beautiful to them!
I totally agree with you Brian! While I thoroughly enjoyed my pregnancy belly during all 3 of my pregnancies, and my husband never thought I was sexier, this is abnormal. This child does not need to have a visual for the rest of it’s life of how it was created! I’m all for beauty and creativity but why did they have to be totally nude?
Please do not put me into your “those of us who have gone through pregnancy,” category.
What I think makes this photo awkward is the attempt to cover the “naughty” bits while being naked. It is hard to make an argument for the beauty of the human body when the figures have downcast eyes, are covering up with their hands and pressing together to hide his very naked masculinity. The attempt to look “tastefully nude” makes this awkward, because the tasteful part is full of the kind of modest shame about the body that you’re arguing against. As far as the beauty of the pregnant body I don’t believe that the pregnant body is any more beautiful than any human body. If you are not the kind of person who would have a nude portrait when you are not pregnant you’re going to get an awkward pregnant nude photo, and this photo is really quite awkward.
While you are right, you have put way too much thought into this! (smile)
Dang, that was articulate!
So what makes this awkward is that we can’t see MORE of their naked bodies? Hmmm…I hope they don’t see this and attempt to rectify…
well said! Totally agree. I almost think this is a “statement” photo that “doth protest too much”, like either to prove to ex’s, or other folks that they are either happy heteros, or have completely moved on from the ex’s.
Well said. I do think that the pregnant body is amazing when you consider it, to me it doesn’t matter how many women have been pregnant, still amazing. But that’s the woman’s body, so no need for the guy to be nude, “just because”. I’m very lax about nudity, I don’t think this is a sexual photo, but like you say, these two just look like they wanna hide their bits.
Um yeah….I’m a parent, I loved being pregnant. But I really don’t need my guest thinking about how I CONCEIVED my child. The husband being naked is completely unnecessary.
I have given birth twice, sweetheart, and that does not make me or you or any other woman who has given birth Mother Earth. It means we used our functioning reproductive system. That photo is beyond awkward. I can just imagine trying to explain to my husband how I wanted to pose for this picture. LOL!
“I have given birth twice, sweetheart, and that does not make me or you or any other woman who has given birth Mother Earth. It means we used our functioning reproductive system.”
THANK YOU! That needs to be said in so many situations beyond this.
Thank you!!! ^_^ You said it so much better than what I was about to write.
Well, I’ve gone through pregnancy and have a child, and I certainly didn’t feel beautiful. Rather, I kind of felt like a beached whale that sprouted legs.
Way to lump me into a category I didn’t want to be lumped into. >.<
Also: This is still an awkward photo.
I don’t think you should be on this site cause I think you’ve missed the point. There is obvious humor in this picture. I’ve seen the naked pregnant belly pictures before but they usually involve fully clothed people with the belly exposed (not awkward but beautiful). This however, completely ridiculous and submitted for good reason.
this is what i’m not getting. why would someone without a sense of humor be on this site…looking at these photos? …maybe awkward isn’t a strong enough word. lol
Amen! I ask myself that question frequently while browsing this site, lol.
Haha I’m 14…
I just thought I could possibly be a little useful here…
I think it’s a beautiful photo.
I do however understand that when it is put up on a sight like this it is meant to be the subject of comments for people that find it awkward, so I understand why most of the people here talk about it being awkward. No problem with that.
Outside of this website though, I think it is very thoughtful and probably something that couple will cherish for a long time.
I have to agree.I like it-not usual but very loving,beautiful and artistic.
That is just…bizarre…
Oh my Lord … I hate these naked pregnancy/belly photos already but THIS is just wrong! We don’t need the visual imagery of what got them to this point in the first place! ACK!
You are spot on in your response! And, what the hell are they looking down at anyway?
Their clothes!!! lol
see, now i dont need to say much, you said it right here…
it really is a beautiful idea for a picture… it just got lost in reality…
I know what my Christmas card is going to be this year.
that poor photographer…….
Had to be on a timer.
Maybe that IS the photographer.
