“They both deserve their rest” – dad’s Facebook message delivers sweetness and smiles

Posted in Family.

What’s sweeter than an image of a mum and a sleeping baby? How about when the image is accompanied by a paragraph of praise and gratitude from the father?

This is exactly what Tony Emms achieved when he recently shared a Facebook image of his fiancée, fast asleep with their infant baby.


In the post Tony reflects on just how much the mother of his child does in a day including taking care of their son and keeping the house clean.

“lately I’ve been thinking what this amazing woman does while I’m out.. surely she just sits with the baby and watches TV and has a chilled day right? ,” Tony writes.

He then encourages other dads to, “respect the mother of your child. She is a special type of human that has given up everything to bring up your baby”.

He ends his message by announcing, “I truly love my two sleeping babies and they both deserve their rest.”

Tony’s fiancée, Charlotte Sperry is certainly one lucky lady!

After his Facebook message went viral, Tony shared an equally sincere message to his commenters: “This post was not aimed to go viral or anything. It was just to let my partner know how much I love and care for her. I can’t wait to save up for our wedding and put a ring on this girl’s finger.”

Now, on the count of three, everyone say, nawwwww.
