Fla. teen's selfie with teacher in labor a hit

The picture has been retweeted over 20,000 times

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - A South Florida high school student's unusual selfie is lighting up the Twitter-verse.

Malik Whiter tweeted a pic of himself sporting black shades and grinning as he stands in front of his teacher while she was in labor on Tuesday.

"Selfie with my teacher while she having contractions" he wrote in the caption, along with a smiley face.

WPLG in Miami reports Whiter said the unidentified woman is a great teacher and he wanted to capture the memorable moment for himself and her.

The teacher was apparently on the phone with her mom when the photo was taken. She went to the hospital, but didn't have the baby and returned to school two days later.

According to Gawker, the photo was retweeted 20,000 times.
