In the pictures, you can see 31-year-old man proudly and confidently showing off his belly and posing like an expecting mother.
He has a Facebook profile by the name ‘Babybook’, where he uploads amazing maternity pics and people having cute babies. He liked it too much and wanted his wife, Meghan to take maternity pictures too.
But Meghan was reluctant on doing that even when she was pregnant with their first child. So when she refused to do it the second time Sylvester himself hired a photographer and decided to pose himself.
Defying all the orthodox and traditional concept, he explained it to the photographer what he really wanted to do. Kerri Lohmeier, the photographer, had a fit of a giggle after hearing this and then agreed to do it.
He Googled the most popular maternity poses from different photoshoots, such as lying on the bed pose or the silhouettes. They used different props like ice cream, superman undies to make the photoshoot more interesting.
This amazing father admitted that it was not easy to flex the belly out for 30 minutes to get the perfect photos. His body remained sore for 24 hours and his back hurt. He felt it was a small preview of what women go through during pregnancy for nine months. He appreciates the women for their sacrifice.
He initially wanted to show the photos only to his friends. But then gathered the courage to post on Facebook. The amount of response he got in the post was overwhelming. So he finally decided to upload them on Reddit.
There is no looking back since then. He has been approached by many companies to sponsor their brands including agents, publishers, ice cream and pizza companies.
But above all what is more important is welcoming their second daughter Ruby June.
