This is the moment a deadbeat dad leaps from the sofa and suddenly showers his baby with love when he hears his wife returning home.
The lazy hubby had been stretched out scrolling through his phone when he leapt into action the second he heard a key in the door.
So as his wife was entering the room, he was cuddling their baby showering it with kisses and baby talk.
But he had not bargained for his wife’s suspicious nature or the CCTV security camera in the family’s apartment in Nanjing, Guangxi, southern China.
So when his wife reviewed the footage and discovered the truth, she put it out on social media to shame him.
She said she had just returned from shopping and only found out what had really happened when she rewound the footage.
Her hapless husband told her his panic was just a kneejerk reaction triggered by hearing her at the front door.
Netizens had a lot to say about the cheeky dad, with ‘Goddess’ commenting: “It’s true. All men are the same.”
‘Star Language’ wrote: “The husband didn’t even know there was a camera on him.”
‘Budyu’ joked: “Baby: What is this sudden fatherly love?”
‘Style’ remarked: “The wife wanted to see what her husband was looking at on his phone.”
‘Mo Someone’ said: “The whole world is scared of his wife!”
