The big blue-eyed baby who captured our hearts on YouTube graced GMA this morning with his parents!
Baby Emerson, 5½ months, who hit it big with his hilarious YouTube video “Emerson — Mommy’s Nose Is Scary,” made an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America March 23 and although he didn’t say much, he looked as adorable as ever! And good news — his parents Karen and Michael from London, Ontario are putting all of the video’s profits in a fund for Emerson’s education. Wonderful!
“He’s a very happy baby, we are very lucky,” Karen says of her son. “He loves his parents and his toys and very happy.”
Emerson’s freak out over his mom blowing her nose has close to 9,500,000 views! But, lucky for the little guy he’s not afraid of nose-blowing anymore. “He is used to it now,” Karen adds.
As for why the video happened in the first place, Karen says it was all because of her cold. “I was really sick,” she says. “I’d been sick for about a week and I kept blowing my nose and that morning was the first morning that he actually started laughing afterwards. So I got out the camera and started recording.” And good thing for us!
“I was really glad that we captured it,” Michael explains. “It’s nice to get these moments.”
