Viral pregnancy photos

More specifically, it's two photos, side by side. A lesbian couple snapped the pics a year apart, while each was pregnant with their child. The best part (in addition to the overall sweetness!) is the fun continuity in the pair of photos.

Both photos are taken against the backdrop of a beautiful beach scene. Each pregnant mom wears the same black triangle bikini top, with loose-fitting black pants, showing off a big, bare baby bump. Facing the opposite direction, each partner offers a kiss for the mama-to-be, while stashing a bouquet of flowers behind her back.

The major difference in the two pics? In the photo taken second, the couple's first child plays patiently on the sand front and center!


The couple had no expectation their photos would go viral. In fact, they didn't, right off the bat: The family originally posted the photos to Instagram two months ago. It wasn't until more recently that they started to go viral after some websites with LGBT content—and big audiences—shared them as well.

One Brazilian advocacy organization posted the photos to its Facebook page—where the post has already garnered over 162,000 likes since April 16.
