The video of a baby caught in a dilemma after discovering for the first time that her dad had an identical twin brother has gone viral on social media.
Seven-month-old Ariah Fooks has been making the rounds on the internet since a video showing her priceless reaction to a spectacular discovery went viral.
The little girl has since become a celebrity in her own right, attracting millions of online fans and having her epic facial expressions made into memes.
The viral footage, shared by Ariah's mom, Nathalie Fooks, captured the moment the toddler spotted her dad and his twin brother together for the first time. The overlaying text read:
“The moment my daughter realized her father is a twin.”
It showed the youngster, secured in her child seat mounted on a table, eagerly watching her dad, Delante, make funny faces as he waved at her.
As if realization struck her, she quickly turned her face in the opposite direction, where her dad's twin brother, Deandre, sat, also wearing a black shirt and sunshades.
Like her dad, her uncle also waved and made funny faces, causing the youngster to stare with a puzzled expression.
As if trying to make sense of the "double daddy" crisis, Ariah turned in the direction of her dad to find him still standing in the corner, waving.
The confused little girl had a muddled look on her face as she kept shifting her gaze between both brothers, unsure of their identity. The Maryland mom captioned the clip:
“When your dad has an identical twin. #babytiktok #babiesofinstagram #cutebaby #blackbabygirl #twinparent #babyinfluencer.”
With over 35 million views across social media platforms, baby Ariah is gradually taking over the internet. On her TikTok page, which already boasts 29.4 thousand followers, the video has caused quite a stir, with many commenters trying to analyze her reactions and facial expressions. One comment read:
“She’s probably like 'my dad is FAST! How’d you get over there so quick?'”
Others found the baby girl's confused expression at seeing the two men together hilarious. A TikToker commented, “Whoppa. The confusion on her face."
One user pointed out that the girl was mesmerized while trying to figure out which of the twins was her dad. Another suggested the parents should have made another part of the video showing them asking the child to go to daddy to see which of the duo she'd pick.
Amid the mostly-laughable comments, one thing everyone agreed upon was how adorable baby Ariah was.
