Some men put on ‘sympathy weight’ when their partners get pregnant, but most aren’t as keen to draw attention to it as one funny Florida man.
Lewis Mohorn Jr. from Pompano Beach was posing for a pregnancy shoot with his fiancée Jessica Velez, in which Jessica’s baby bump was meant to be front and center.
But it seems the jokester and dad to be wanted to flaunt in his own belly, too, and eventually took his shirt off for the hilarious pictures.
