A California couple and their emerging baby made history this week when the child made his trip from the uterus to the outside world while his father recorded it all for an audience watching on Facebook Live.
It seemed like a sweet story of a proud father showing the world how beautiful the birthing process can be. But it’s since been revealed that Kali Kanongata’a didn’t have his partner’s permission to film the scene and that Kanongata’a didn’t know himself how far-reaching his video eventually became.
“She kind of didn’t know about the live aspect, and I hinted to her that my cousin said, ‘Keep pushing,’ and from that point on, I figured that she knew she was on live because I’m always doing something live,” he told CBS News.
Considering the video has racked up more than 200,000 views, it didn’t take his partner, Sarah Dome, long to figure out what had happened. Asked by CBS Sacramento when she realized what he had done, she said with a laugh, “I think after. He sent me a message right after.”
