Student poses for selfie in front of pregnant teacher who just went into labor.
The baby is going to cherish this.
When Malik Whiter's teacher, Susana Halleck, started suffering contractions, he knew that running out for hot water and towels was just something they do in the movies. He knew that his school was centrally located in close proximity to hospitals and it was better that expert EMTs provide his teacher the care she needed. He knew if he was going to help his beloved teacher in any way, there was one thing he could provide with more skill and talent than anyone else.
So Malik tweeted out the best goddamn selfie in the history of narcissism.
When asked about the intent behind the photo, Whiter responded that he thinks Halleck is "a great teacher and he wanted to capture the memorable moment for him and her," according to Local10 News in Florida.
Let's get a closer look at that memorable moment.
God, I love this kid.
Halleck was reportedly on the phone with her mother in the photo, assuring her that she was okay. We'll unfortunately have to wait for Whiter's selfie with the gooey newborn. Halleck went to the hospital but was told the contractions were a false alarm and was sent home. She returned to school the next day.
The pic has been retweeted over 20,000 times, but don't worry about Whiter. He's not going to let this change him.
Halleck's unborn baby, however, has turned into a total diva.
