Picture of newborn baby becomes internet sensation… and rightfully so we think

We try to not be overly sentimental about things here at FTN, we’re all grown men and women, but occasionally something comes along that we have to post, no matter what the context. As a father, this really got me..

New dad Randy Atkins was present when his wife was giving birth to his daughter, Nevaeh Atkins, via c-section. According to yahoo, Randy recounted: “The doctor called me over and said, ‘Hey, she’s grabbing my finger. So I ran over there and just grabbed the shot and I was just in awe looking at it. It was such an amazing picture.”

When the couple shared the picture on Facebook it, as they say these days, went viral, receiving over 1,590 shares and 3,305 likes.

Randy wife and the mother of Nevaeh wrote on Facebook: “This was 10 weeks ago when I was having my C-Section and Dr.Sawyer broke my water…and my daughter reached out of my stomach and grabbed the Dr’s finger and my hubby caught this special moment.”

Hope this was a suitably sunny start to your Friday FTNers…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
