This adorable little prince has melted the hearts of thousands with his little morning, stretching routine.
It all started when Kent Siri posted a video of his son Kaden who would throw his arms up cheerfully after he’s been unwrapped from his swaddle, which he found genuinely endearing.
He decided to edit the ‘Freedom’ yell from Braveheart on top of a video footage of baby Kaden throwing his arms up in the air as soon as he was untucked.
His friends and family thought that it was hilarious and he felt encouraged to do a new one each new morning.
Finally, on March 31st this year he posted a compilation of several clips edited together on his Facebook page.
Baby Kaden’s parents were not prepared for what was about to come.
“Whoa. What happened here? A million views??? We are completely shocked at the overwhelming response to our little guy’s morning wake up routine,” wrote Kent on his Facebook page.
“Thanks to all who have liked, commented, and shared!” he said.
And indeed, baby Kaden’s video was seen and shared by more than 14 milions of people!
“We had been posting the individual clips on Facebook for weeks, but when I put the compilation together, things just exploded. Frankly, we’re still trying to wrap our heads around all of it!” Siri said for Fox59.
They even set Kaden’s very own Facebook page where fans can see Kaden’s progress and vlogs daily!
The page has now 20,000 followers.
Reception and reactions to the video were overwhelming. Seems like people enjoy waking up to videos of Kaden. Just on time to liven up their days!
Facebook user Madlyn Jackson wrote: “He must be one of the cutest little babies I’ve seen. He is going to cause a lot of trouble for you … when the girls come calling! GOOD LUCK!”
Another witty Facebook user, Genevieve Gates wrote: “How do I go about getting one off these Kadens?”
I hear ya lady!
Some grumpy people were not impressed that Kaden’s parents were swaddling him.
Swaddling is the technique of snugly wrapping your baby in a blanket for warmth and security. What is does is it keeps your baby from being disturbed by their own startle reflex.
His parents decided to send a friendly reminder that after all, they are his parents and are surely not crazy to hurt him or stunt his development in any way!
“The first thing I want to say is that we love Kaden more than anything. Period. We are doing the best we can as his parents to make sure he has a happy and healthy babyhood,” they wrote.
“His mom and I have always made sure to perform extensive research and have consulted our caregivers to ensure that we’re making the right choices for him based on his own unique development.”
So, back off, haters!
