A photo of two young parents is going viral after viewers spotted something very wrong in the image.

It’s a reminder to always check what else can be seen in your photo.

Stefan Pollman and Philia Gold, posted the images on Stefan’s Instagram account, Fox News reports.

The first image featured the couple posing with their adorable baby and taking a selfie of their little family.

But it’s their second black and white image that has gone viral.

Can you see why?

People on social media were quick to point out the fact that the couple had seemingly ‘discarded’ the child for the second photo.

Instead the baby can be seen awkwardly lying on the floor at their feet.

A side-by-side of the images was shared on Twitter leading to a host of people joking about the couple’s priorities.

Some even noticed mum continued to hold the toy giraffe, but not the baby.

  • A photo is a split second in time. Babies lay on the floor, that’s what they do because they are babies!


  • First of all the baby was probably squirming and wanted to get on the floor. Secondly, who was taking the photo of them taking the selfie?


  • Do people have nothing better to do than judge photos which are probably quite innocent. Most babies like to lay on the floor and look around or even go to sleep if you are being quiet with what you are doing. I have one who actually got out of bed on a warm day, was still tired so he decided to get his play cushion and have a sleep on the cool floor. You mattress holds your body heat.


  • Um… really? I never look at any photo close enough for that detail. It was only when it was pointed out that I saw it. Not a great look or priority.


  • Seriously? Does anyone else’s little kids not lay on the floor? Discarded? Haha! People have nothing better to do. Stupid story.


  • OMG can we start having proper articles! My kids are always pulling at my feet on the floor. Why did I waste my time reading this, people need to stop worrying about others and focus on themselves!


  • I don’t see the issue … or the point really


  • Babies lie on floors. This is a non-issue really.


  • The baby looks like a doll in both photos , I dont think it’s a real kid, truthfully nothing about the picture looks real to me, or tasteful. And yeah who holds a camera in front of your face in both shots, that’s real normal


  • Just don’t see why selfies are taken at all – such a waste of good time [the house could be partially cleaned up instead of taking selfies].


  • Not sure about this one, they are very messy so not looking good for baby to be on the floor, looks like the baby was dumped quickly for another selfie and no thought gone into it. I actually thought it might be the old air con and tv set up, looks a little dangerous with the tv hanging off the wall and all the cords.


  • We don’t take selfies like that…


  • My question is: why do people take photos with the phone covering most of their face?


  • Are you kidding me!? I thought maybe they were saying the house was untidy. I was expecting to see alcohol bottles or drug paraphernalia somewhere. The baby probably had enough photos, who’s kids don’t lie on the floor?!


  • To be honest my kids lay randomly over the floor, especially in the heat ! What do we even know ?
