A new dad couldn't help but sing for England yesterday ahead of their Euros victory against Denmark - despite the fact that his wife was in labour at the time.
Football fanatic, Simmie Sweeney belted out 'It's Coming Home' as his partner, Amy Watts, endured contractions on the way to hospital, ahead of the birth of their child.
To make matters worse for poor Amy, 27, excited Simmie, 26, decided to film the moment and upload it on Twitter.
The clip sees him singing the 1996 Three Lion's hit while poor Amy squirms in pain next to him.
Check it out below:
We can tell you, if this was our partner, there would be hell to pay.
Birmingham local Simmie's video has now been viewed more than 400,000 times, and received more than 8,100 likes on Twitter - with many people branding it hilarious.
As he shared it, he jokingly asked: "Reckon I'll be out in time for tonight?".
Speaking after sharing his viral tweet, Simmie teased: "I thought there's no better time to let people know it's coming home than during child labour.
"We're both football fans. Amy isn't as much of a fan as me, but she's got involved with the Euros.
"I've had it before where people have said I look like Harry Kane. We're having a little girl so if Harry Kane scores a winner, I can't call a girl Harry, but maybe Harriet?
"It's a conversation to be had."
He went on to state that he'd be putting the game on during Amy's labour, too.
"I'll be watching the clock tonight before kick off. I've brought the iPad so I'll have to multi-task if the baby isn't born by then," he said.
"This is our third child. I think she'll be more relaxed if I stick football on in the background - or I'll be shouted at. One or the other."
On social media, Simmie's video attracted more than 22,000 views, but the best part is that he hasn't actually told Amy that she's gone viral on Twitter yet. So, err... we're sure she'll have enjoyed that surprise after giving birth.
"I've had to put my phone on 'do not disturb' because of the reaction on Twitter," he laughed. "My phone battery went from 80 percent to 6 percent."
We think he's going to have some serious answering to do. But, hey, if this doesn't symbolise England's dedication to the footy then I don't know what does...
