Woman’s husband streams birth via Facebook LIVE

Well it was only a matter of time before people started streaming their births, right?

Giving birth is a spectacular miracle, but would you want to share that intimate moment with the world in real time?

Well on the weekend one couple headed to the hospital and live-streamed the birth of their baby boy to Facebook.

After hours of waiting by his wife’s side Fakamalo Kihe Eiki hit share when the action began to start.

“Let’s try pushing baby out,” Eiki posted as he began recording.

“You’ve got it!” he told mum, as she did the hard part. “He’s right there! He’s right there, babe.”

The Californian man filmed the entire 45-minute ordeal while over 2000 people tuned in and flooded to couple with live commentary.

After the healthy baby was delivered Eiki thanked viewers for “enjoying the gift of life with me.”

With the TMI world of social media, it was only a matter of time before someone broadcast a birth via Facebook Live.

We only hope he asked his wife’s permission before she started pushing.
