Maternity pictures are always awkward, aren’t they? You want to preserve the moment and have a visual record of how your pregnancy progressed, but towards the end the shots just start looking the same. The look on your face always progresses from happy smile to strained can you please get out, baby?

A Florida dad accidentally caught the coolest maternity photo — and it is truly a shot that could never be planned. Just as 30-year-old Dan Mozer was directing his 31-year-old wife Angeline to smile, the most amazing thing happened: a dolphin photobombed the frame. Presenting the coolest maternity photo, ever:

“When I took it, I was like, ‘Oh, my God!’ Unfortunately, she totally missed it,” Mozer told Yahoo Parents. That’s okay. This is good practice for all the times in the future you’ll tell your wife you heard the baby say “dad,” saw him take his first step, or insist he gets an extra pep in his step when he hears Elvis singing. There are so many parenting “moments” we don’t catch in unison — this is an appropriate start.

Mozer said some beachgoers alerted him to the dolphin’s presence so he was able to snap a few shots in unison for the coolest maternity series, ever. “And, no,” he told Yahoo, “we’re not changing his name, as some have suggested, to Dolph Finn.”
