6 Touching Photos of Dads with Babies that Will Melt Your Heart!


Is there anything more touching than seeing a dad hold his baby for the first time? I remember when my son was born, we couldn’t hold him for two days. He was an itty bitty preemie! Since we had to wait so long, I of course got to hold him first. My husband had to stand by patiently awaiting his turn. In honor of Father’s Day, we asked readers to share their favorite “daddy & baby” bonding pictures! Check out five touching moments caught on film.

  1. So sweet! We have a picture of my husband holding our oldest when we first got home from the hospital. He has this look of love, wonder and worry on his face that is priceless.

    I love all of these pics of dads with their babies. They’re each so heartwarming! Thanks for sharing.

  3. These are all so sweet. All captured at that perfect moment. What precious moments to save for a lifetime.

    So cute. Photos of my hubby with our littles when they were babies will always remain favourites of mine. So sweet.

  5. This made me tear up. Maybe because I am a new mom and it is my husband’s first Father’s Day this weekend.

  6. It’s great to see when a man sincerely cares for his baby and it shows in a photo. I don’t have any photos of hubby holding either of our sons that stand out more than the others.

  7. Such sweet photos here! I love the one with the plant and the one with the laying down mirrored facial expressions.

    I love to see photos of babies with their Daddy’s. That is such a special connection. These photos are precious!

  9. So darling! My kiddos all adore their dad. I need to frame some more photos of them with my husband.

    These are all adorable pictures. My favorite picture is when the nurse first handed our son to my husband. It was love at first sight.
