There's never been a better reason to share one of the most intimate moments of anyone's life.

Toronto couple BJ Barone and Frankie Nelson welcomed newborn son Milo into the world on June 27, just as WorldPride was being celebrated in the city amid an outpouring of love for families of all kinds.

The birth was captured in a photo, which has since gone viral, showing both dads in tears embracing their son. It currently has over 40,000 likes on the photographer Lindsay Foster's Facebook page.

Check out the video above to find out what exactly happened in those precious moments and why some commenters online are taking issue with it.
