Parents who take part in photoshoots to capture the wonderful innocence of their new bundle of joy know what they’re getting into. There’s always a chance that, however adorable a newborn can be, it can also be a trying experience filled with squirminess and crying. Lots of crying. But pooping?
Jennifer and Al Ferguson were at their photographer friend’s and had naked sleeping baby Ted perfectly balanced on Al’s arm. All good, right? Yeah, not so much. The four-day-old, relaxed, perfectly content in Dreamland, went to town, spraying his oh-so-proud papa with poop.
Honestly, look at his little smile. So cute, even as he’s pooping.
“I had no idea what was going to happen,” Ferguson told KentOnline. “We were probably about 10 shots in and I felt Ted’s tummy tighten a little bit but I didn’t think he was straining or going to go to the toilet, and within seconds he just exploded.”
Hey, it could’ve been worse. That tar-like substance newborns produce? So much more evil.
Local photographer Kirsty Grant captured the moment. Almost (almost) funnier than the surprise projectile is that Ferguson doesn’t seem fazed in the least. Aw, kudos to him. If he can handle this, he can handle anything. Even when Ted gets older and berates him for allowing these shots to go viral.
