Baby says first word during Twitch livestream

Twitch, the live-streaming service mostly used for gaming, is a great place to get involved in the world of esports and, if you’re lucky, witness major childhood milestones in real-time.

Twitch user Arex was streaming live to his 149,000 followers when his 8-month-old daughter made a special guest appearance.

“You have to go to bed!” Arex said as he held his young daughter. “Say goodnight; say goodnight to the chat.”

Arex’s daughter turned around, looked directly at the camera and exclaimed, “Goodnight!”

Arex whipped his head around to look at her, stunned. “What?” he asked. “Did you just say goodnight?! No way!”

The comments from people watching live, which can be seen in the upper right-hand corner, all celebrate the moment. Some used the phrase “POG,” which is an expression commonly used by gamers after something incredible or exciting takes place.

The proud father shared the moment on Twitter, where the clip picked up over 2.8 million views.

“I’m so glad this was caught on camera,” he captioned the video. Twitter users’ reactions speak for themselves.

Typically, babies will start babbling at 6 months old and then start picking up basic words by 12 to 18 months. Although these are just the average milestones, it still explains why Arex was so stunned to hear his daughter say a multi-syllable phrase.

“She even knew where to wave,” a Twitter user pointed out. “Guarantee she’ll be a bigger streamer than you by the time she’s 3.”
