There's more than one way to react to the birth of your child, to be sure. Some are cryers, some are stoic, some are prone to laughter, and others are simply stuck in shock. So while you might think your partner isn't the crying type, there's no way of knowing how he or she will react until that baby enters the world. There are, however, some low-key signs your partner is going to cry when your baby's born, so you can prepare to see some waterworks.
My partner isn't that much of a crier... unless there's an emotionally-charged incident that calls for it, like, say, when his soccer team loses. Again. (Just kidding... kind of.) He did cry during the births of both our children, though, and even though I didn't expect him to. He's more of a "put on a happy face" kind of guy, even if the world seems to be burning down around him or something incredibly moving is taking place right in front of his eyes. His perpetual positive attitude is great for lifting my spirits, but when I think a situation calls for tears, and he doesn't provide any, his reaction can feel... cold.
Luckily, after I pushed our kids into the world I spotted my partner's wet cheeks, and not a second before concluding that my loving partner was officially dead inside. So with that in mind, here's some signs that your partner's about to lose it during the birth of your baby.
