A man in the U.S. brought his Xbox game console and monitor to the hospital where his partner was giving birth. The video of the father -to -be was posted by the woman on her TikTok holder and has since spread on social media.
In the video, the man is seen sitting at the foot of a hospital bed with his back to him, wearing headphones and playing a shooting game.
“My boyfriend brought his entire gaming system to the hospital during my 21 -hour induction,” TikTok user Amber wrote at the top of the video, according to New York Post.
Since its release, the video has been viewed 1.6 million times. It has received 45,000 likes and 3,200 comments from viewers.
Social media users are divided on whether this is acceptable.
“Wow. Red flags, man,” according to another comment.
“I love my game but I’ve never tried to do this and better things to worry about,” added another.
Some users, however, defended the man.
“I mean what do you want him to do? Sitting there for 21 hours contemplating it? He might be more amused to see him play… I’m sure so, ”commented a TikTok user, as reported by Pos.
“I also went through a long induction process and I definitely don’t mind if my son’s father brings his game,” said another.
Amber assured the crowd who saw the video that the man was “okay” carrying his console, as he hadn’t experienced any kind of pain for 19 hours.
