31 Real-Life Moms Tell the Dumbest Things Their Partners Said in the Delivery Room

Everyone reacts to stress differently. Some get quiet, some crack jokes, and others just can't seem to stop talking. And while there's nothing more nerve-racking for a new dad than being helpless in the delivery room, that's just no excuse for some of the asinine things that come out of their mouths.

We asked real moms, "What's the most ridiculous thing your partner said in the delivery room?" and some (if not most!) of the comments had us wondering how these dads ever made it out of the hospital alive.

  3. "With my firstborn, the ex asked the doctor no more than an hour after delivering when I could start working out to get back in shape. Yeah, he was a special kind of stupid." — Amanda-Rae
