A Reddit user who posted grinning photos while his wife was in labor said his spouse was well aware of what was occurring while she grimaced in pain.

The man, who posts under the username gisolano12, shared the now infamous image with the caption, “My wife wanted to make sure that someone took a picture of the expression on our faces when our daughter was born today. So I took one,” Fox 29 reported.

When other commenters suggested his wife may not be thrilled to find out she was pictured on the internet, he replied:

“Yeah, I actually took this pic to send to her brothers who kept asking how it was going. I showed it to her in between pushes and she cracked up. Now I’m reading her all of you guys [SIC] comments while she feeds our healthy 7 lb 6 oz girl.”

He later posted photos of his daughter and smiling wife.
