    The first time I saw this this the computer screen didn’t show the whole pic. I thought aww!! She is so cute, I love her watch, and then I scrolled down to comment and saw the man in the back. OMG!! First, what is she doing with him, and what photographer took this and got the idea to put him there!! Is so cute except for him in the back.

    “pssst…I’m not leaving”.

  4. Katie Swim says:

    Poor dad. She got peeved at him before the shoot and relagated him to the backgroud. Poor guy.

  5. Audrey says:

    hahha hilarious! my dad wasn’t like that though; cause he didn’t flippin care enough to be on time to my one of my ultrasounds when my mom was pregnant with me. he completely missed it and showed up afterwards “/

    Good concept, horribly executed

    All he needs is Claritan and his fuzzy world will clear up.

  12. Cee says:

    I’m wondering if perhaps he’s not the father, but just some spectator that the photographer didn’t notice? Either way, this is one of my favourites.. the potential story possibilities around this photo are endless!

  13. Justin says:

    The is just trying to say he’ll always be in the picture for the little guy, albeit fuzzy and unreliable.

  14. Missy says:

    Nothing says “DAD” like a piece of wheat up his nose and him hiding in the bushes peeping on mom.

  15. scruffy says:

    I think it was photoshopped.

  16. Sarah says:

    I must admit, if you cut out the creepy dude in the back..I actually like this photo. The mom looks genuinely happy, is fully clothed (in nice clothes, too. nothing tacky), and the bokeh (blurred) focus of the flower field behind her adds a nice touch. It’s one of the best pregnancy shots I’ve seen.

    Except for the guy. That just leaves me with a very confused and slightly disturbed feeling.

  17. Beki says:

    Seriously. Someone thought this was a good idea? The photog couldn’t have had her take a step or two forward to get him out of the shot? It really does look as if he’s just wandered mistakenly into the picture.

    darn zombie.

    Party poopers….

  20. Smitty says:

    What could this photographer have been thinking? I think this goes to show that just because you a own a good camera, you don’t necessarily have the right to call yourself a “photographer.”

  21. Catroast says:

    I’m sure the father didn’t think he was going to be the butt of all these jokes.

    So that’s who was on the grassy knoll.

    • Tim S says:

      No, no, there’s no one on the grassy knoll. It’s just a trick of light and shadows. There’s only one “shooter” here.

    Usually my comments about these preggie pictures never appear with everyones because I tend to be a little bit harder on the potential artsey phartsey theme.
    In fact I have started sending out my comments to friends and family when they dont appear. To let them know there are still people “out here’ laughing our butts off at the art/drama/silliness of women who want to show off their big bellies to the world.
    Say a BAFP??? banned awkward family photo??????? just kidding 🙂

    She kept her clothes on. Good. And she’s cute also 🙂
    Poor Dad. He has a lavender stalk growing up his nose and one coming out the side of his head 🙁
    It aint easy being Dad ….

  25. Same here says:

    I totally concur!

  27. Grommie says:

    Dad was naughty and got sent to the time-out field.

  28. Stacey says:

    He lost his focus….

  29. MikeZippy says:

    “OK dad, if I could have you stand back….further….further……..good, now lower……lower….PERFECT! Right behind her butt-cheeks!

  30. Carrie says:

    hey at least she has clothes on!

  31. jasmine says:

    Everywhere you go…. I’ll be watching you!

  32. queen of awkwardness says:

    this one makes me laugh sooooo hard, especially the caption.
    love it.. so awkward

  33. NativeBB says:

    Could be a photobomber too…

  34. skippy says:

    I was scrolling down, thinking, “hmm, this seems like a normal maternity photo shoot OH MY GOD THERE’S A MAN”

  35. Jamie says:

    I think he’s just lost focus, that’s all.

  37. Beqi says:

    You know you have a stalker when……

  38. Troy says:

    They were closer at one time

  39. Jen says:

    Maternity pics in general make me shudder…this one, definitely awkward.
