Couple Does Hilarious 'Newborn' Shoot That Isn't What It Looks Like (PHOTOS)

abby lee matt kay newborn shootMatt Kay and Abby Lee are in their mid-20s and have been dating for the last two years. They share an apartment in Australia and an adorable pet dog named Humphrey, who is part golden retriever, part poodle (a.k.a groodle). They're happy just the way they are, yet often get asked one question many couples dread: "When are you having a baby?"


Instead of responding with a polite smile or forced explanation of countless personal issues that can accompany it, Matt and Abby chose a little humor and creativity. They partnered with photographer Elisha Minnette, a close friend of Abby's, to create a silly photo shoot with them and their dog that parodies all the clichéd poses normally seen in newborn baby albums.

Check it out.

Elisha insists, however, that it was not meant to make fun of parents or people who overly share their baby photos on social media, telling us exclusively:

We did this shoot just for a little bit of humor between ourselves and our closest family and friends that have the same sense of humor as us. This was just clean simple Sunday afternoon fun.

As for the status of the couple's babymaking plans? Abby told the Daily Mail, "Both sides of our family give hints towards having children, and at this point in time, Humphrey will be the closest they will get to a grandson."

More from The Stir: Stop Asking My Husband & Me When We're Going to Have a Baby

I am a newlywed, and I relate all too well to this couple's plight. My husband and I just celebrated our one-year anniversary, and now more than ever we are being asked about having children. Do we want them? If so, then when? How many?

While I appreciate the sentiment, what I don't appreciate is the seeming pressure that goes along with it. Especially now that I am in my 30s. Yes, I know my clock is ticking, and no, I do not need you reminding me of it. Instead, what I need is a little trust that my husband and I are adults and we know what we are doing with our lives. Like the couple in the photo shoot, we want to have kids eventually, but in the meantime, we are are just enjoying our relationship and finding the humor wherever we can.
