Some thought that Gil Solano would be in hot water when he posted the selfie of himself and wife, Sarah, right after baby Eva was born.

People took to the now-viral photo to express their thoughts, offering what seemed like their parting words, including "you're dead," "enjoy your celibacy" and "rest in peace, nice knowing you."

But the new mom said her husband's actions amused her.

“I thought it was hilarious,” Sarah told INSIDE EDITION. 

“The negative and the positive are hilarious,” he said.

Sarah chimed in and said: “It’s not for everyone, fellas don’t do it. Definitely not the most flattering picture of me,” she said.

Gil disagreed and said: “She’s beautiful that’s why I had no problem with it, that’s 12 hours of labor and she’s gorgeous.”
