Pregnancy, such a magical time. That sadly, men don't get to experience. The feeling of knowing you are growing another human inside of you... oh and all those fun maternity shoots! Sometimes, a guy can kinda feel left out, or just wanting to make their love laugh! That is exactly what 26 year old Nick Roberts did!
When Nick found out that his girlfriend Brianna was pregnant, his friend and gym buddy Stephen Cwiok approached him with (what we believe to be) a genius idea. Robet's shared on his Facebook page "My buddy Stephen came to me with the joking idea of doing a maternity shoot… featuring me". At first Nick was hesitant and put off the idea. But then he basically said f*#k it and decided that they just had to do it!

And they did not fail
So how did the photoshoot actually start?
Robert's told his story, thankfully. "So, one day Stephen came to my house, picked me up, and off we were," he said.
When two guys even just come up with the idea of doing a maternity shoot, you just know it's going to be hilarious. So to make matters even better, the two decided to get down the most important part of the shoot...(the belly) by having Nick eat McDonald's. Yes, we also are thinking it... they are creating the ultimate food belly! "We went straight to McDonald's and ordered an absurd amount of food that I had to slam into my face hole. I had 2 McDoubles, a McChicken, a four-piece chicken nugget, two chocolate chip cookies, and a medium Dr Pepper." And just like that, Nick had a food baby. Congrats on the news!
"We spent about two hours shooting. It was a difficult shoot to get done, due to the nonstop laughing and the fact that we were covered in ticks. [The shoot was] really tough to do because we could just not control ourselves," Nick revealed.

So what happened with the photos next?
Well, they decided that they best place to present such a gift was at an actual party. A gender reveal party for his actual baby, that is... "We put the album on a table where nobody was sitting, walked away, grabbed a beer, sat down and waited..."
"The album didn't go unnoticed for very long. The first unassuming person approached the book as Stephen and I sat in the distance and watched, waiting to see their reaction. It was everything we hoped it to be. As soon as they flipped the cover to the album, their head whipped back and hysterical laughter began! Not long after, people began to surround the table. Our mission was a success," Nick recalled.
Nick and Brianna's baby boy was born on Halloween (Epic) and he's in for a treat when he is old enough to see these photos!
