Baby Says 'Hello' at Only 7 Weeks Old in Adorable Viral Video

By    |   Thursday, 12 March 2015 06:20 PM

A 7-week-old baby who mimicked his mother to say "hello" on video is going viral.

The newborn, Cillian, was clearly attempting to mouth the word his mother Toni McCann was repeating, and at the end of the video, he nailed it.

“omgosh this is so precious!” one person wrote on YouTube.

McCann, a drama school teacher, said talking may be an inherited gift.

"I am a huge talker," McCann told Yahoo. "Cillian had been trying to communicate for a while, but it really surprised me how clear his ‘Hello’ was. I’m glad I got it on video, as I’m sure no one would have believed me."

With more than 476,000 views by Thursday afternoon, the video is getting a few thumbs down online, with some people convinced it’s been edited or that Cillian was just making sounds and didn’t really say “hello.”

But McCann told the Daily Mail she could sense her baby was trying to say something. “I'd read that babies communicate from a young age and to give them space to answer when you talk to them,” she said. “That's was I was doing that day and because he was so alert and making such good eye contact I decided to video him. You can tell my total shock when he came out with ‘hello.’”

With three older sisters, it will probably be a good thing if Cillian learns to talk at a young age. McCann told the Mail, “He loves his sisters but from a very young age he always responded most positively to interaction from his dad, my husband Paul. From about five weeks old his little tongue would stick out when his dad was talking to him. I realise now he was trying to talk because that's what he does in the video.”
