A proud papa is catching some flack for something he did while he was in the delivery room with his wife.

Gil Solano took a controversial selfie while his wife Sarah was giving birth.

He looks like he’s having the time of his life while Sarah is, well, struggling to give life.

Solano posted the picture online, and while some said the photo was inappropriate, Gil said his wife loved it.

“My wife wanted to make sure that someone took a picture of the expression on our faces when our daughter was born,” he wrote on Reddit alongside the photo. “So I took one.”

“I had been pushing for a few hours and Gil showed it to me to help take my mind off of things and make me laugh,” Sarah explained. “I thought it was hilarious and told him he should send it to some of our friends.”
