Mom, WTF?

previous post: Wins before the Weekend



  1. Could have happened on his leave. Not a fail

  2. 1) He was “12 months at war” meaning he didn’t come back from leave, otherwise it would have been i.e. 6 months at war. 2) Pregancies are 9 months (technically 10 months because they always count from your last period) so it would be impossible for the soldier to be the father assuming artificial insemination wasn’t used (with the soldier’s sperm) 3) The picture is probably photoshopped because the news station would recognize the awkwardness of the situation and likely not air it as it would create a distracting story to the one they are trying to portray thus wouldn’t have shot her or indicated the “12 month leave.”

  3. Time is measured by length of deployment. If his unit was deployed for 12 months, HE was deployed for 12 months regardless of being able to come home on R&R for 2 weeks. Not a fail.

  4. Even the woman on her left is struggling to keep a straight face.

  5. Obviously, the woman on the left is the wife, and the pregnant girl is his daughter.

  6. I read this story online somewhere and there are other pictures that go along with it, but you can’t post links here. The girl was interviewed and talked about how the baby was conceived in March while he was at home on his leave… not a pregnancy fail.

  7. I was thinking about the hussy attire , could contribute to the ‘fails’

  8. #2, the captioning wasn’t made by a news station, there is a generator for that stuff. Hence I assume the deployment was not 12 months.


  10. Wow I can’t believe people are disputing whether the preggo lady is a win/fail because of the amount of time her husband was away. It is a HUGH fail bc it is the tackiest thing ever in the history of the world.

  11. i also doubt a real news station would caption anything with ____ Fail.

  12. kyjanel, you don’t know what you’re talking about. A 12 month deployment has a leave, usually 2 weeks, in between. You fail.

    Wow Lamebook, this is only over 2 years old!

    There are more photos online from a real news source, and the caption below one of them reads:

    “Kendra Kaplan, 5 months pregnant, watches as her husband SSG Joshua Kaplan and fellow U.S. Army soldiers arrive on August 18, 2009 in Fort Carson, Colorado. She had brought a sealed envelope with an ultrasound, so that they could learn the baby’s gender together upon Joshua’s arrival. The Kaplans will be having a baby boy, concieved during Joshua’s mid-term leave in March. Approximately 575 soldiers from the 2nd Brigade Combat team from the 4th Infantry Division returned Tuesday following a 12 month deployment to Iraq. At lower left is their son Ayden, 3.”

    You’re welcome.

  14. The baby could have easily been conceived on R&R. In fact, that’s often how it happens. I live in a military town and work in the maternity ward of a military hospital, so I should know.

  15. Whatever makes you think the woman couldn’t go to visit her husband? 😛

  16. Whoever submitted this is an idiot.

  17. I go to foreign place for 12 months to shoot stuff, I come back to home place, I have baby.

    People say this ‘fail’, I say no fail. I get baby. I wins.

    Other people’s babies get bombed, they loses. Epic collateral fails.

  18. I love how the news actually said “Pregnancy fail.” Or maybe it was edited in… either way it’s hilarious. It’s sorta mean i guess though cuz she was really happy, and was probably all wonky on hormones but still this is a win.

  19. R&R baby, that’s certainly not a fail, if that is the case. It happens all the time.

  20. Nothing sexier than an infant

  21. Holy fuck. Women have babies now?

  22. Omg….the top one is so stupid I had to create a freakin’ account just to express it. 😉

    The caption type is available at ‘’, you can make your own “news stories” out of pictures. And comments #1 and 3 were right, it doesn’t matter if you get to come home on R&R in the middle, it doesn’t count against your time deployed. If you are deployed for 12 months (which is an unusual amount of time to be deployed across the services, most are 6, 9, or 18 months), you are deployed for 12 months even if you get to come home at the 6 month mark for 2 weeks.

    Come on Lamebook, you can do better than that.

  23. My husband and I were both in the Army. We served a 12 month deployment in Iraq, during which we got 2 weeks of R&R. The Army still does 12 month deployments, my husband is on one now. I have friends who have gotten pregnant during leave. It happens. Kyjanel, your first statement is just wrong.
