Looks like another royal has been born! A set of excited new parents decided to recreate one of the best Disney movie scenes to celebrate the birth of their new daughter, and the resulting video is over-the-top AND hilarious–and it will be especially pleasing to anyone who loves newborn babies or is a fan of Disney’s The Lion King!
Performing the same iconic scene the movie uses to welcome the future king, baby Simba, new first-time (and obviously super proud!) parents Timi and Maria Wusu welcomed their daughter, Kaiori Ayotunde Omautan Wusu, with a must-see video that has everyone talking.
Of course, the reenactment is not exact. Instead of using the juice of a fruit to mark the baby’s forehead, this silly daddy uses baby lotion–and instead of being encircled by an excited herd of goats, monkeys, elephants, and zebras, the new “royal baby” is surrounded by a group of excited nurses and staff members from the family’s Boston hospital–who all look more than happy to bow down and play a part in the fun, lighthearted clip!
Check it out!
And if (like us!) you’re now feeling nostalgic enough to see the original clip from the movie, here it is:
