Baby with unusual amount of hair looks like a grown man

Trending Now

The internet is buzzing over a Brazilian baby named Joao Miguel, who has an extraordinary amount of hair, making him look like an adult man.

Videos of Joao Miguel posted by his parents on TikTok have garnered more than 100,000 followers, captivating the online community.

Joao Miguel's thick brown hair covers him from head to toe, and his pronounced eyebrows make him appear much older than he is. Some followers even claim that he "looks like he's 35 years old."

The beard steals the show

What has caught most people's attention is the baby's beard.

One follower commented, "He has a better beard than most men."

Another joked, "Miguel drove his mom home from the hospital after he was born."

A third said, "He could walk out of a liquor store with a 12-pack, and no one would say anything."

The reason behind Joao Miguel's unusual hair growth is still unknown, and followers have speculated various theories.

According to experts, the official term for very hairy babies is "lanugo." Pediatrician Beverly Kupfert told Today's Parent that there's nothing to worry about if your child has excessive hair growth. "If your child is born with lanugo, it will disappear within a few days or weeks. If it stays a bit longer, that's normal too," she said.

The story of Joao Miguel has left many intrigued, and his unique appearance continues to be a subject of fascination on social media.
