Lindsey and Jonathan Tuttle recently took to Facebook to share their one of a kind picture showing family and friends how they plan to get some last-minute practice in before their baby arrives the only way a Floridian can… By attempting to bottle feed a baby alligator naturally.
Lindsey Tuttle tells WFLA that Fred the alligator was not harmed and that they hope he will be an excellent brother figure to baby Tuttle.
The Tuttle family said they wanted touching memory to be had and passed down through the generations and they are due March 6th but wanted to keep the baby’s gender a surprise.
There’s a lot to unpack here; they did their Florida research & no detail was spared… We’ve got an expecting couple near a Florida swamp on a dirt road, a case of Bud Light with a shotgun leaned against it that appears to be pointed directly at the woman’s pregnant belly, the classic ‘jean shorts undone’ look with boots, the flag, and of course, a bottle fed gator. (No worries, from her own caption on Facebook, Tuttle made clear she did not try to breastfeed the reptile.)
The more I look the more I love it. In the comments it’s clear they had a sense of humor about the whole thing…
And quite frankly it’s inspiring. If I ever get knocked up this is the route I’m taking, 100%. I imagine the photoshoot for my Philly suburbs version would take place behind a WaWa with a case of Yuengling, a 9mm pistol holstered on the outside of my sperm donor’s cargo shorts, & an Eagles flag in the background.
Here’s some more ideas in case you’re currently in that boat:
