Recently, 29-year-old Chris Urena and his wife have received a wonderful news that after two years of trying for a baby they are finally expecting a beautiful baby boy. What a wonderful news, right? Chris was so excited about the news he thought that a maternity photo shoot is a great idea to celebrate it. Well, his wife wasn’t really fond of the idea itself so Chris took the maternity wheal into his own hands and decided to be the star of the photoshoot.
“It was funny how it came about. I’m a photographer myself and I try and take as many pictures as I can, but my wife doesn’t really like being in pictures,” Chris told Unilad. “When I mentioned doing a maternity shoot, she said she didn’t really want to do anything too revealing, and she didn’t really want to do it, and I kept asking her. So I started talking to my other photographer friends and decided ‘you know what, let’s just do it with me.”
Now, the ‘man-ternity’ photoshoot becomes quite a trend with similar images making a splash, and we absolutely love it as it shows a funny and adorable side of expecting a baby, and it shines a new light on dads who are waiting for their babies as much as mother’s do!
