Some women like being pregnant; they adore the glow, the belly, and everything else about it.
Many others, though, will tell you that it’s no stroll in the park, what with morning sickness, hormones, strange food cravings, and, of course, the growing weight.
Men have no clue what it’s like to go through these changes, but one man recently attempted to learn what it’s like by pretending to be pregnant for a day.
Maitland Hanley, a TikTok member who recently had a baby, shared a video to the social media site showing himself attempting to be pregnant.
In the video, Maitland is seen laying on a bed with a huge watermelon covered in cling film around his belly.
He got two melons wrapped across his chest like breasts, as seen above.
He is told to wake up for the day by a woman in the background who creates a beeping sound that sounds like an alarm clock.
However, he is cocky, assuming that standing up will be simple.
As he tries to turn his body around and into an upright position, he adds, “Yeah, watch this.”
The artificial belly, on the other hand, quickly encumbers him.
He tries to stand up again, this time getting his legs over the edge of the bed.
As the video concludes, he says, “I thought it would be so much simpler.” His friends can be heard laughing uncontrollably at his failure.
The video has now gone viral, having been seen over 15 million times and receiving over a million likes.
Thousands of people reacted to the video, with one commenter proclaiming, “Women are superheroines.”
“You thought this was going to be easy…” wrote another.
A third said, “Hahaha ladies rock!”
Someone another commented, “My goodness, be gentle, the baby will be injured, that’s not how we do it.”
