Photos of fathers with their newborn babies have often gone viral. A recent collection of heartwarming photos compiled by Huffington Post showed fathers in their very first moments with their children.
"I felt extremely nervous about being a father since, I did not have a dad growing up," one new father wrote alongside a photo of he and his wife holding their newborn for the first time. "I didn't think I could love another person as much as I did my wife. However, once I saw him being born via emergency c-section; all that nervousness went away immediately."
"I have been amazed and in love with him more and more as the days go by," the father added. "He has filled a hole in my life that I didn't even know was there; and that couldn't be filled by anything else but him. I am proud to be his father and he is my best buddy."
