"Daddy showers" are becoming increasingly popular as the once womens-only affair is turning into an occasion that both men and women love to celebrate. An expecting dad and his friends recently had a blast at his daddy shower.
Taking to his Twitter page, popular app user, @AdvoBarryRoux shared pictures of the gents having some fun while at the shower and captioned the post "Banna" to describe his surprise at seeing men have a baby shower. In the pictures, the funny guys went as far as to putting balloons under their shirts to signify the expected unborn baby.
Twitterzens were soon blowing up the post with their thoughts. While many ladies and gents called on the celebration to be normalised, other women criticised the guys for faking their bellies. Read a few of their comments below.
"Deadbeats won't admit what an awesome tradition this could be coz they're never around long enough for the birth of their offspring."
"Gents we should normalise this. It great."
"This is beautiful. I really wish more men could experience their own nappy braais and support their friends with nappy braais."
"This is good, a bunch of guys promoting responsible fatherhood."
