It might not be the last time this baby poops on his pop, but it will probably be the most memorable.

Al Ferguson, a 26-year-old blogger from Kent, England, was cradling newborn Ted during a photo shoot recently when the unswathed bundle of joy squirted "number two" all over Daddy's arm.

Ted's sleepy bliss and his dad's reaction are priceless.

"It brings me great joy to unveil to you all THE best newborn baby picture ever taken," the elder Ferguson wrote at The Dad Network.

The Internet evidently agreed. Ferguson noted that after he gave an interview for "Today," the image (shot by Kirsty Grant) became a viral sensation.

"It happened within a second,” Ferguson said of the incident in the photo, per "Today." “As I felt his stomach tense, in the back of your head you know he’s about to go poo, and then before you know it … he’s doing it.”

That's one poop for posterity, kid.
