Dad shares post about being a ‘dream husband’ to his hardworking wife.

In an image posted to Imgur, user AvidClimber is seen lying in bed next to his snoozing wife, while cuddling their newborn baby on his bare chest.

He wrote in the post: ‘After winning a battle with testicular cancer last year we finally got our firstborn son.

‘Pro tip: Real men take care of their baby while mommy takes as many naps as she needs,’ he added.

‘She’s been through an ordeal! Suck it up, guys, and be her dream husband!’

The touching post has been viewed more than 470,000 times, and racked up hundreds of comments from new fans.

Not everyone loved his words of wisdom

He received comments from users who accused him of patting himself on the back for something that all dads should know to do without being told.

‘You don’t have to be a real man to take care of your kids,’ wrote one user. ‘It’s simply being a man.’

Another wrote: “F$%& you you self righteous c$#t. You aren’t the gate keeper for real men.”

“Real Men…” is always a real fat dude way of starting a sentence. But congrats on the sex trophy!”

“I’m not above being preached to by a shirtless person but this just ain’t it. Honestly, on about 4 levels I don’t know why you would post this.”

“Real men don’t make posts about being real men. They just get the job done and stfu.”

Awesome or too self righteous? Do you think he deserved to be ridiculed for his post?

  • i don’t think that he deserved all the hate. what is wrong with people? good on him


  • I think he’s awesome. There are a lot of men who still don’t do their fair share of childcare and household duties


  • Had a bit of a giggle at congrats on the sex trophy.
    But really, good for him for being proud of being a dad. If it was my husband taking a picture of me sleeping and putting it all over the internet I would kill him, but she’s way too knackered to be bothered.


  • This post and what he posted says something over this man himself.
    The fact that he was ridiculed for this post says something about those who read it.


  • Maybe he is trying to say to other Dads they should help out and let the Mums have some sleep, or at least some rest. It also points to Dads bonding with their babies.


  • Sharing on social media etc …sometimes it kicks you from behind.
    If you share your thoughts and pics be prepared for likes and don’t likes and the odd kick.


  • Rather sweet and clearly he adores his wife and child – so congrats and positive family messages are a good thing and not a bad thing.


  • I think he meant well, and that should probably be the focus. Although if I was his wife, I dunno if I’d be too happy about that photo of me…

    • Poor woman – she looks utterly and totally exhausted!


  • Take things too seriously……..much.


  • I think as usual the minority have gone overboard with thus. Pretty sure you’re all taking it way too seriously
