They say never work with children or animals in show business – a principle which everyone from Kim Kardashian to this very author seems to have forgotten, but thankfully, an Instagram power couple has issued a powerful – and totally hilarious – reminder to us all of the perils of mixing offspring with, well, anything.
Insta influencer Stefan Pollman, and his partner Philia Gold, were visiting Sydney from Germany this week, when they decided to post two mirror selfies – one with their toddler son… and one accidentally with their toddler son.
The first snap was evidently a happy family photo, but the second focused just on Gold coyly sitting on Pollman’s lap… with a closer inspection revealing their little toddler lolling on the floor, at his parents’ feet, because he is over it all.
It was an, ahem, minor, detail which of course the internet wasn’t willing to ignore, even though Pollman deleted the photos.
Voiceover artist Summer Ray posted screenshots of the photos on Twitter (in a tweet which was later deleted) with the caption: “Lord forgive me I cannot stop laughing at the discarded baby in the second photo.”
