You may once have found yourself over at the in-laws house, politely making small talk while having tea and cake, when you point to a cute baby photo of your significant other on the mantelpiece.

“Aww that’s sweet,” you say. Before you know it, five huge, dusty photo albums are unceremoniously dumped in your lap. Mother-in-law proceeds to coo and tut while your increasingly mortified partner squirms awkwardly, trying to change the subject as cringeworthy pics of themselves are proudly pointed out for everyone to have a good old chuckle at.

A while ago we made a post of people’s embarrassing childhood pics, voluntarily uploaded by themselves. This time, Bored Panda has compiled a list of awkward childhood photos that are posted by the significant others, those who just can’t quite believe that this is the person they fell in love with. These brave people managed to smuggle them out of the dusty photo albums, and share them online for us all to chuckle at!  Check them out below and vote for your favorite, feel free to add your own too!

"The girl in the pink boots, her riffle and her hunting cat" would be an appropriate title if she ever writes an autobiographical book. And I'm not even trying to be sarcastic, her early life must've been really interesting, if she has such cool photos from then.

When I was 14, I wore a studded dog collar to school. People would ask where I bought it from (this was 1996) and I said a pet shop. They were always so surprised but where else would I get one from?
