On Aug. 1, a proud papa in London, England who goes by the social media handle Paymaker posted an image on Imgur of his just-born daughter, flashing an A-OK sign with her middle finger and thumb, all while resting skin-to-skin on her mother’s chest.

My daughter was born at 2am today. And she gave us the OK.


Since then, the image, along with the caption, “My daughter was born at 2am today. And she gave us the OK,” has banked more than 7.2 million views on Imgur and almost 1,500 comments on Reddit.

Delivered in a birthing pool, the snapshot was captured minutes after the expressive 8-pound, 3-ounce marvel entered the world. According to Paymaker via Reddit, it was Hartley’s mother who suggested taking the photo upon discovering the baby’s instant knack at an OK gesture.
