You are only a newborn once any many parents like to capture that moment with photos. For some parent, they go all out while others keep it simple!
Well the baby in this story in 21 years old!
Rebecca Hayes and David Ward missed the opportunity to take a set of newborn photos with their son, Clayton, when he was truly a newborn because they broke up shortly before he was born.
According to HuffPost, Hayes and Ward dated in high school, and Hayes became pregnant with Clayton her sophomore year of school. The couple stayed relatively close to raise their son but otherwise led separate lives with separate spouses.
Then in 2013, Hayes's husband died and her high school ex-boyfriend, Ward, reconnected with her to help deal with the heartache. Two years later, in 2015, Ward's wife also died. As HuffPost reports, the two exes became friends and supported each other through it all, and eventually became romantic again.
Now, reunited as a couple after all this time, was really the first chance Hayes and Ward had to take those newborn photos they missed out on decades before. Hayes told HuffPost the photo shoot was her idea. "I half joked about it but both David and Clay were surprisingly on board, so I had to jump on it," she said.
The photos are adorably hilarious!
