When giving birth, it’s customary to have your closest friends or relatives in the room as a source of moral support. So, who better to include in the Labor Morale Troupe than your sister? After all, sisters are often the sources of our deepest and most enduring female friendships.
But, then again … sisters are also known for teasing you and giving you sh*t.
Kat Armendariz was recently in the delivery room while her sister Kimberley was giving birth. In the middle of the labor pains, Kat thought it would be hilarious to snap a selfie. Unfortunately/fortunately, Kimberley suddenly experienced some brutal contractions right as Kat took the photo, leaving the sisters with a somewhat hilarious illustration of the “miracle of birth.”
Kat posted the photo to Imgur with the caption, “SELFIE! While my sister is about to shove a baby out her vag!”
Kat herself is a mother of five, so she certainly wasn’t oblivious to the pain that her sister was experiencing — and she was quick to tell the haters that her sister actually thought the photo was a funny idea.
“She wasn’t in too much pain at first, so she thought it was pretty funny,” Kat told Mashable. “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.”
Ah, sisters. They’re always there for you in your moments of need — even if it’s only to snap an embarrassing photo for the two of you to laugh about later.
