A father has shared a touching post about being a “dream husband” and taking over parenting duties that melted thousands of hearts.
The father, known as user AvidClimber, has posted to Imgur a photo of himself, lying in bed cuddling his baby boy on his bare chest while his wife sleeps next to him.
He wrote in the post:
“After winning a battle with testicular cancer last year we finally got our firstborn son.
“Pro tip: Real men take care of their baby while mommy takes as many naps as she needs,’ he added.
“She’s been through an ordeal! Suck it up, guys, and be her dream husband!”
The heartwarming post has already gained over 469,000 views and earned hundreds of comments. Some have warned the user that his wife would probably not like it when she finds out he had posted on the internet an image of her sleeping.
However, the father explained that his wife has already seen and approved the image before he posted it to the site.
Other people praised him for sharing the post and congratulating him for surviving his battle against cancer, while there are also others who hit him for complimenting himself saying, it’s a father’s obligation.
“You don’t have to be a real man to take care of your kids,” wrote one user. “It’s simply being a man.”
