‘Teletubbies’ Sun Baby’s Identity Revealed As Jess Smith — Fans React

Jess Smith: Why I Finally Decided To Come Clean

Jess reportedly first revealed the truth during a “getting-to-know-you game during her first week at Canterbury Christ Church University,” E! Online claims. Soon thereafter, she told the rest of the world her secret via Facebook.

“So I’ve recently celebrated my 19th birthday and after a lot of thought, I’ve decided it’s time to tell everyone,” she said on the social media site, according to E! Online. “I used to hide it but after a lot of encouragement from my friends at university, I’ve gained the confidence to come out with it. I am the sun from Teletubbies. There has been quite a few people pretending to be ‘the sun’ but only I could tell you the real story. Everyone says they can see the likeness between my face now and me as a baby. I still have a baby face. I haven’t changed much either. I am still giggly.”

The resemblance is uncanny!

Ironically, there were rumors the true identity of the baby was a different Jessica Smith, the 27-year-old who starred on MTV’s Laguna Beach, Daily Mail claims. Now, that would have been awesome.
