We’ve all seen our fair share of “Meet my new baby!” pics by now. You know, the adorable shot of the tiny newborn wrapped up all nice and warm.
Well, that’s exactly what grad student Sarah Whelan Curtis did, too. But not with a human baby.
You see, Sarah is a graduate student at Emory University in Atlanta, and she wanted to celebrate her “longest labor ever” by taking these awesome photos posing with her thesis on genetics as if it were her new baby.
The thesis reportedly took Sarah four years to complete. I mean, can you imagine a four-year pregnancy?
People are loving this unlikely photo shoot, with other PhD students proudly sharing their "labor" stories, too.
And inspiring other doctoral candidates to maybe take similar pics once they're done.
Do we smell a new trend?
Sarah told Yahoo Lifestyle that her mom had given her an ultimatum: “Either get a PhD or give me a grandchild. I got my doctorate.”
