He posted the picture on Reddit, sparkling almost 500 comments as people discussed why the baby might look like that.
Many enjoyed using wordplay. “Perfect for that midlife crisis,” ScabbedOver joked. Others joined in – ThisOpenFist wrote “Midwife crisis”.
Hoorayb33r said: “Midwide Chrysler”.
They were all congratulated by another user, who wrote “Wheel done”.
The picture shows what looks like two wheels, a roof, a driver’s window and even something which seems to be a steering wheel.
One user speculated as to why the child was such a strange shape in the picture.
They wrote: “She’s been spending too much time with the Transformers.” Someone else had a different theory, writing: “The father is obviously Lightning McQueen”.
Earlier this month, Claire Dempster tweeted a remarkable photograph which showed her baby was the spitting image of Gordon Ramsay.
