Way to make the moment all about you.

Malik Whiter, a high school junior in Coral Springs, Florida has become something of a celebrity after he recently snapped a selfie – while his pregnant teacher, Susan Halleck, had contractions behind him.

Whiter posted the pic on Twitter and it exploded, with nearly 24,000 retweets.

Whiter said he simply wanted to commemorate the momentous occasion. As it turns out, he jumped the gun – Halleck, who isn’t due until December, went to the hospital, but returned to school the next day without having delivered the baby.

Which means Whiter has some more time to hire a professional photographer to get an even better photo so we can put an end to this selfie madness.
