A baby who looks like an adult went viral on social media because he looked like a grown man and had a “better beard than most men.”
Young Joao Miguel has taken the internet by storm after videos his parents posted on TikTok left viewers with their jaws on the floor.
The young boy from Brazil is shown to have an extraordinary amount of hair on his body, leading one viewer to claim that he “looks 35.”
Although Joao is otherwise relatively normal and can do normal baby things, the TikTok account (@babyjoaomiguel07) has more than 100,000 followers.
Baby Joao’s TikTok account has amassed 2.8 million likes, with her most viewed video having been viewed 32.5 million times.
There is also a YouTube channel, but it only started last month and only has three videos and 36 subscribers.
However, the names of Joao’s parents remain unknown.
Nevertheless, the infant’s thick brown hair that covers him from head to toe has piqued people’s curiosity so much that they keep coming back for more pleasure.
Joao’s huge eyebrows and shaggy facial hair give him a strange appearance, making him seem like a man trapped in a child’s body.
But it’s the beard that’s gotten the most attention from toddlers, with hundreds – and sometimes thousands – of people flocking to the comments sections to weigh in.
In one post, one user wrote: “He has a better beard than most men.”
A second person joked: “Miguel drove mom home from the hospital after he was born.”
Another commented: “Miguel can walk out of the liquor store with a 12 pack, no questions asked.”
In another video of him drinking from a bottle, users asked if he was actually drinking “tequila” because he looked “over-aged.”
But the real reason behind Joao’s excessive hair growth all over his body is yet to be revealed.
Regardless, many on social media have put forward their own theories, although it is not believed to be anything more than hormone excess.
According to experts, the official name for very hairy babies is Lanugo.
And pediatrician Beverly Kupfert told Today’s Parent that there’s no need to worry if your baby is experiencing excessive hair growth.
She said: “If your baby is born with lanugo it will disappear within a few days or weeks.
“That means if it lasts a little longer, that’s normal too.
“In some cultures, body hair may become more common and persist beyond the first few months of life.”
