Would you like this man to deliver your baby?

The last thing you'd usually need when you're giving birth is something else to stress you out, and I'm not sure looking down and seeing the Joker between your legs is going to do anything good for your stress levels. But it sure does give you some memorable birth pics.

The image was shared recently on imgur with the caption, "Cousin gave birth on Halloween night. This was the doc during the delivery."

Since being posted three days ago, the image has been viewed nearly 1.5 million times.

Father of the baby Justin Selph shared the story behind the picture with Love What Matters.

"It's not every day you get to see Dr Joker deliver a baby," he wrote. "Our baby girl got to experience just that. Welcome, Oaklyn Saige Selph!

"My wife's due date was November 5, but that obviously didn't happen. She woke up Halloween morning to her water leaking. We went to hospital around 12:30pm and checked in. Brittany's doctor came in to meet with us, and that's when we found out he was dressed for Halloween as the Joker. We found it very humorous and a little exciting that we would have a baby delivered by the Joker.

"He came back in to check on her around 4:00pm that afternoon, she again, wasn't ready. So he said he was going home to pass out candy, and to change clothes. My wife said, 'Aw, we were hoping you wouldn't change!' Brittany was ready for delivery at 8:00pm, so the nurse called her doctor in, and to our surprise, he showed up in full Joker attire, ready to deliver our baby! There my wife is, staring the Joker straight in the eyes while delivering our baby. He was a great sport about the whole situation, and took photos with our family.

"The next morning, he came in to check on Brittany, and he said, 'Sorry I couldn't make it in last night, glad to see the delivery went well.' Joking of course. He also gave her a card of congratulations, and he signed it 'Dr Joker'."

Oaklyn will have some amazing photos of her birth to share for many years to come.
