9 Stages Guys Go Through After You Say 'I'm Pregnant!' (PHOTOS)

by Mary Fischer

man with face in handsDo you remember the exact moment when you told your husband (or boyfriend or whoever) that you were pregnant? What am I saying? Of course you do.

I'm sure his reaction is permanently stuck in your brain, regardless of whether he was elated, annoyed, or totally scared to death.

But no matter what emotion he expressed to you after hearing the news that you had a bun in the oven -- you gotta wonder what, exactly, must have been going through his brain right afterward.

If I had to guess, I'd say there are around nine phases a man goes through after hearing that he is going to become a father.

1. At first, he doesn't quite process what you just said. "Wait ... what? What did you just say? What's happening?"

Ryan Reynolds

2. Then you say it again and it sinks in. And he freaks.

Jim Carrey

3. Then he pats himself on the back. "Oh yeah. My boys can SWIM, baby!"

Ronnie Jersey Shore

4. And then for a brief second, he panics. "Hold up -- it's mine, right?"

Colin Mochrie

5. But then in the next breath he's all, "Of COURSE it's mine. DUH. She adores me."

Robert Pattinson

6. Then the light bulb REALLY goes off. "OMG. I'm going to be a dad?!?"

Kanye West

7. The panic comes back. He's all, "Am I ready for this? Can I handle this shit?"

8. He takes a step back and thinks to himself, "I CAN do this. Time to step up to the plate. Bring it."

Men in Black

9. And that's when the emotion really hits him and he can't hold it in any longer. "OMG. I'm going to be a DAD. It really doesn't get any better than this."

Steve Carrel

    First one was, "are you sure?"  We had been trying for 3 years and had just stopped fertility treatments 3 months before.

    Second was "Oh shit!"  We had only been trying for 2 months

    Third was "Hope its your girl this time"  We were planning for this one to be a girl after first 2 were boys and I had thought my 2nd was going to be a girl.

    Fourth was "Are you kidding me"  He was a total surprise.

    Mine was so excited he ran around telling everyone he could find with our first.

    The second he wasn't as happy about.

    The third he kept telling me "it'll be okay. We love our kids snd can handle 3".
