“They say angels talk to babies when they smile in their sleep.”
The photo that has been making waves on social media
Little Aubrey Alvarez is three weeks old and is making waves on social media thanks to a photograph in which she appears sleeping and smiling, supported by the gloves of her father, motorcyclist Hector Alvarez, as if she were being held and protected by him.
Little Aubrey’s father, Hector Ferres, ᴅɪᴇᴅ on April 8, a month before the girl’s birth. The photo of a newborn snuggled up in her late father’s gloves has gone viral and has been shared more than 70,000 times since it was posted on Friday.
The baby’s mother, photographer Kim Stone, posted the photo on Facebook with this comment:
“Her dad loved the motorcycle. He always wore protective gear. He wanted to ensure safety; he couldn’t take any chances knowing the baby was on the way. But he will never hold his little girl in his arms. Just a month before she was born, his life was ᴛᴀᴋᴇɴ ᴀᴡᴀʏ by someone he considered a friend. They say he has angels talking to babies when they smile in their sleep. I think maybe that’s true.”
And who can say no?
