Military Wife Pregnancy Fail Photo is Not What it Seems – Here is the True Story

Pregnancy- (not) fail - Kendra Kaplan
Kendra Kaplan welcomes her husband home from Iraq

In November of last year, the above photo was taken of a 5-month pregnant woman welcoming her husband home after being deployed in Iraq for 12 months.    

The picture quickly went viral, and has recently resurfaced on Facebook, with questions and accusations running rampant – how could this woman be 5-months pregnant while her husband had been gone for a year?  It’s easy to assume the worst and point fingers and call names, but instead of doing that, why don’t we find out the real story.

The woman in the picture is Kendra Kaplan.  In the photo, she is indeed 5-months pregnant. And yes, her husband was deployed over seas for 12 months. But the caption on the photo, which is not original and has been changed to paint Kendra in a bad light, implies that the baby is not the husband’s.  Kendra told WISTV that this is simply not true and that the baby, named Tomas, was conceived on her husband’s two-week leave.

Kendra says, ”A lot of babies are conceived on mid-tour. A lot. The husbands come home, they’re home for 2 weeks, and what else are you going to do? You’re gonna make a baby!”

All the bad publicity and nasty comments was enough to make Kendra get a paternity test to prove her point to the world – and to her son (not that she had to prove anything to anybody).

Kendra said that she can tell Tomas that “this is your daddy, there are no ifs ands or buts about it.”

It’s a shame that things can get so twisted simply for the amusement of trolls on the internet.

Kendra, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank your husband and your family for the sacrifices you have made to serve our country.  You do not deserve the malicious verbal attacks that you have received.

Moral of this story, don’t be so quick to judge.
