If this hilarious footage looks familiar, it might be because the video has been making the rounds on social media platforms for the past 5 years — but this is the first time the video has gone viral on TikTok.

According to a 2016 interview, Stephen explained that his baby, Reed, had no idea Dad was a twin — until Stephen’s brother, Micheal, babysat.

When Stephen and his wife, Carol (also a twin!), came to pick up baby Reed, hilarity and confusion ensued!

Reed, only 16-months-old when the video was shot, had never seen the twins in the same room before and couldn’t quite figure out what was going on.

“Reed isn’t used to me wearing glasses, and in his confusion, he kept reaching back and forth between me and Michael,” Stephen explained in the interview.

‘Why is this so cute…?’

Given its popularity, the adorable video has no shortage of comments from all over the world.

“Why is this so cute?” one user mused.

“Poor kid is going to think the fridge is [his] dad too,” joked another user.

“Have someone else hold her and have [the twins] stand next got each other,” suggested one user.

“Fun fact – if each couple has a kid, the kids will be legally cousins but will be as genetically close as siblings. Assuming that they’re correct and that both sets are identical twins,” one user wrote.

It’s clear this video has nestled itself in the heart of social media as a long-lasting classic! Who knows which app it’ll go viral on next?
