A photo of a newborn baby girl — and specifically the angry expression on her face — has caused the internet to explode with a new viral sensation.
Isabela Pereira de Jesus was born via a cesarian section in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on February 13. Photographer Rodrigo Kunstmann captured the moment for Isabela’s parents, and he posted the photo on his Facebook page on February 15. His caption, as if speaking from the baby’s POV: “Today is my birth and I don’t even have clothes for this event.”
While it took a couple of days, the photo soon got traction all over social media. The original post now has more than 1,700 shares, more than 1,000 comments, and nearly 4,000 reactions. These numbers have jumped since People posted the photo thirty minutes before the publication of this post; at that time the posting had 3,500 reactions, 1,000 comments and 1,600 shares.
According to reports, baby Isabela didn’t initially cry when she was born. She gave doctors her angry look, and only cried after they cut her umbilical chord.
Needless to say, the parents are thrilled by their little internet sensation. For his part, Kunstmann says he feels blessed to have had this moment. “…I never imagined that a single photo could change my life and career,” he told The Evening Standard, “I have been a photographer for 11 years, I hope I can inspire others to never give up on their dreams, God’s plans will always be fulfilled.”
