Paco’s Maternity Photoshoot Is All The Good Vibes We Needed This Week

Because hell hath no fury like a woman scorned…

Maternity photoshoots, as with all photoshoots, depend a lot on the subject’s personal taste. Classic moms usually opt for tight, bump-magnifying floor sweeping dresses or gowns while funkier, hipster moms might opt to skip out on the whole ordeal. Meanwhile, there are dads like Paco, who want to take maternity photoshoots to a whole other level…

Say hello to Paco

Paco is not a mom, but he’s decided to surprise his wife with his very own maternity photoshoot.

I mean look at him, he’s glowing.

Looking fierce as ever

The photographer, Martyn Wilkes, had this to say about Paco’s maternity photoshoot : “The most precious thing in this life is to give life, to pass on our beauty… to experience this most amazing gift given to us by Mother Nature. Paco is expecting a beautiful baby girl called Noelia, with only five weeks to go, his dream of becoming a father is finally coming true…”

Isn’t he pretty?

Isn’t he lovely?

The real story? Paco and photographer Martyn Wilkes are BFFs, and he did the photoshoot to surprise his wife. Apparently, after being tasked with the birth certificate, Paco did the unthinkable and spelled the baby’s name wrong—eek!

Well, this is a pretty good way to say sorry, don’t you think? I mean, how can you stay mad at this face?
