Sure photos of mamas holding their babies for the first time ever are beautiful, but there is something about photos of dads meeting their sons or daughters for the first time that will melt even the iciest of hearts.
With that in mind I requested readers submit their photos of dads holding babies for the first time after birth and I wasn’t disappointed.
Most dads appear very stoic, but if you peek through the cracks in that typically manly reserve you can see hearts and minds are shattered into a million tiny pieces after witnessing the miracle of childbirth and being introduced to their child.
As always, if you’d like to submit a photo of mom meeting baby or dad meeting baby for a future edition of That Very First Photo you can do so on Babble’s Facebook page or you can email me at monica bielanko at yahoo dot com with the subject line “First Photo”.
Without further ado, BEHOLD! Click here to see dads meeting their babies for the first time:
