Where’s the weirdest or most inappropriate place you’ve ever snapped a selfie? Perhaps, on the toilet? While you were eating? While you accidentally had a nipple or other kind of flash fail that you only saw after the fact? Whatever the case may be, it seems doubtful that you can top one Imgur user’s epic selfie… while her sister is giving birth in the background.
The post, which has been viewed almost 500,000 times on the image sharing site, shows new aunt Kat Armendariz snapping her sister’s birth-giving agony. The caption is both blithe and cheeky in the way that only family can get away with: “SELFIE! While my sister is about to shove a baby out her vag!”
But in an interview with Mashable, Kat shared that she wasn’t trying to be a total asshole; if anything, she’s uniquely empathetic to her sister’s plight because she herself is a mother of five. And while she originally took the photo to commemorate the occasion regardless, it just so happened that Kat pushed the button while her sister really started feeling it:
“She wasn’t in too much pain at first, so she thought it was pretty funny. I told her I was going to do it, she just started the oxytocin and the labor pains began almost instantly. She started to feel it and right when she was like, ‘Oh my god I can’t take this,’ I took the photo.”
Ahh, family. Always ready to capture you at your most flattering. (But seriously, best of everything to new auntie Kat and her sis.)
