Molina, more likely than not dealing with the pain of an incoming child, could do nothing but sit back and watch ast Jones locked in on the screen set up alongside the bed.

Jones brought along his PlayStation to the hospital and was clearly struck by the urge to get onto the battlefield as he fired up the gaming console.

The photo of the star, taken by his girlfriend Crystal Molina, quickly whipped around social media.

Jones teamed up with Call of Duty throughout the coronavirus pandemic to help raise money for veterans looking for work.

As Molina went through the painful process of giving birth, Jones and his squad were busy seeking out but would have heard more than they bargained for.

"All his boys on the headset heard my whole labour & delivery," Molina captioned the image.

Social media users were quick to slam Jones for the look, but the man himself was quick to set the record straight.

"Not a good look, just saying," NBC6 news director John Walton tweeted.

"Now Aaron Jones know damn well he wrong for playing freaking PlayStation in the hospital waiting on his kids birth," another user wrote.

In a follow up tweet, Molina said the PlayStation was left on with the headset also on, but it wasn't for the gaming crew. It was left on so their families could share the moment.

"Family was on the headset we left it on so they can hear," she wrote.
