These Shirtless Dads Doing Skin-to-Skin With Their Babies Will Make Your Ovaries Burst
Those precious minutes and hours of bonding with a fresh baby right after their birth make for some of the most emotional moments between baby's parents and family (and the best to photograph!). Highest on the "AWW" scale, though, has got to be dad and baby skin-to-skin bonding time — after nine months in the womb, what's more precious than seeing a dad finally able to hold his little one?
On the flip side, we're only human beings here, so we're just going to say it — these shirtless dads are making our ovaries burst and we may or may not be sweating. Scroll on at your own risk — possibly with a tall glass of ice-cold water next to you?
