A heartwarming Facebook post from an English man paying tribute to his fiancee, the mother of his child, is going viral.
Tony Emms, of Cresswell, Norhthumberland, England, shared a photo on Facebook of his fiancee in bed with their baby, taking a nap together, reports Daily Mail. He wrote a heartfelt post on Jan. 27 to go along with the picture, admitting that he hasn’t given the woman he loves the credit she deserves.
“I sometimes don’t give this woman the credit she is due, when I come from work she is always ‘tired,’” Tony Emms wrote on Facebook. “Now it’s me who has been at work doing stuff all day, but lately I’ve been thinking what this amazing woman does while I’m out.”
He then went on to detail all of the hard work his partner, Charlotte Sperry, puts into taking care of their child while he is at work.
Emms also wanted to send a message to other fathers with his post, according to Metro.
“Respect the mother of your child,” he wrote. “She is a special type of human that has given up everything to bring up your baby. I truly love my 2 sleeping baby’s and they both deserve their rest.”
The response to Emms' post was overwhelmingly positive. The post was shared thousands of times and has received countless comments.
“It’s blokes like you that make us mothers want to do it and not feel like we have to do it, showing your respect in such a broad way just shows there’s decent blokes out there, to any mum single or not its thanks to you guys that there’s hope and appreciation to be had,” one Facebook user wrote.
“You even made me feel a little emotional there!” another user wrote.
