Dad’s reaction to his baby’s fake eyebrows goes viral on Instagram and we can’t stop laughing

The news has been pretty heavy lately which is why so many of us are seeking out fun and lighthearted videos in our online news feed and when we simply need a break from the current reality of the world. Babies bring us a lot of joy and even more laughs which is something we can all use a bit more of these days. Thanks to social media we get to see babies doing funny things all day long, but one video in particular recently went viral, giving millions of viewers a reason to smile.

Mom Chandler Marie King recently put her makeup skills to the test when she decided to give her nine-month-old daughter, Lily, a pair of perfectly manicured eyebrows to see how her husband would react. She shared the results on social media and we can’t stop laughing at how funny he found the entire situation.

In the video posted to her Tik Tok account, King wrote “I put eyebrows on my nine-month-old to get my husband’s reaction.” The thick, penciled on brows make the tot look like she wants to speak to the manager, and her father couldn’t contain his laughter when he walks in the door and spots her new look. Upon entering the room, King’s husband takes one look at little Lily, sitting happily in her high chair munching on a teething biscuit and quickly double overs laughing. “I’m sorry, I can’t even look at her right now,” he says as he tries to contain his laughter. He eventually turns to get a good look at his daughter but can’t stop grinning at her ‘new look.’

The video, and king’s reaction, has since gone viral on Instagram and Reddit as well as Tik Tok and was even shared by The Today Show and People Magazine’s Instagram. King posted a follow-up video to her Tik Tok celebrating their newfound viral success that features all three family members sporting Lily’s eyebrows while doing a Tik Tok dance. It’s clear the entire family has a wonderful sense of humor.

King said Lily’s eyebrows, which she confirmed in the comments, were eyebrow stamps called “three-second brow” absolutely made her husband’s day. Thousands of commenters couldn’t help but agree! “I think I laughed harder at him laughing at her. Lmao,” wrote one commenter, while another added, “I cannot BREATHE right now.” One commenter even requested this become a series writing, “Omg please do it again in different shapes. Angry brows, a raised brow, shocked ones,” which would honestly be too hilarious.

This isn’t the first time a video featuring a baby with drawn-on eyebrows has gone viral. In 2020 an Oregan woman painted ‘evil eyebrows’ on her baby in a video that quickly went viral. “We thought it would be funny to see the expressions she makes paired with the brows!” the mom told New York Post during the height of the Covid quarantine because “Tik Tok became the thing to do during quarantine.”

Seems like people are eager for some fun, lighthearted, and adorable videos to make themselves laugh a bit, and babies with eyebrows will always be funny!

When do babies sit up? What you need to know
Here's when you need to start baby-proofing the house
A baby sitting up looking at the camera.

So many firsts will happen in the first year of your baby's life. Some will be completely unpredictable, like the first word. But others you could kind of prep baby for, like the first time they sit up. When do babies sit up for the first time? When should your baby sit up without falling over or needing a few pillow assistants? Here's when your tenacious tot will conquer gravity to stay upright.
What age your baby will sit up

The first time your baby sits up without any support is a milestone parents can't wait for. It also means you don't have to keep propping your baby up with pillows and hoping they don't fall over the second you walk away. The earliest you could see your baby sitting up without support is around 4 months old, with a more accurate range of most babies sitting up between 7 and 9 months old.
Because baby sat up once, doesn't mean they're a pro
We aren't saying that by 7 months, your bundle will sit all day long and never topple over. But you will see your baby get stronger and more confident and be able to sit for longer periods of time. You'll still see a bit of bobbing around, a leaning tower of baby, and possible faceplants here and there. By 9 months old, they should be able to sit up the majority of the time without needing you to adjust them.
Why it matters that baby can sit up
A few things happen once baby learns to sit up. One is the promotion to eating solid foods, which your little one shouldn't eat until they can support their body. Once your babe sits propped up and can stay mostly centered, solid foods can enter the chat, and that's huge for both baby and parents. When your child sits up properly without you holding them, mealtimes become easier.

Postpartum depression vs. baby blues: Here’s how to tell the difference
How common are these post-pregnancy emotions?
Sad, depressed, worried mother with her newborn baby

Having a baby doesn't just take a physical toll on a body but a mental toll as well. In the days and weeks following childbirth, it is normal to experience a roller coaster of emotions, including sadness. Your body undergoes significant physical changes post-birth, and at the same time, you go through the psychological transformation of becoming a parent.

Feeling overwhelmed and anxious during this time is commonly referred to as "the baby blues," and they are both normal and expected. Postpartum depression, however, is a different diagnosis and a more serious condition — one you shouldn't try to treat by yourself. There is a fair amount of overlap in symptoms, so it can be confusing to figure out which diagnosis fits your situation. So, how do you know if you're experiencing postpartum depression vs. baby blues?
