Newborn Baby Gives Dad The Middle Finger When He Sings Lullaby

A baby being born is a beautiful, natural thing that can make people burst into tears.

When the mum and dad are allowed to hold the newborn for the first time, it instantly connects the parents with the youngster as they embark on their journey together.

So imagine as you're enjoying this beautiful experience, your baby causally flicks you the bird. That's what a couple saw shortly after their baby girl was born.

Still in the hospital bed, Michelle was cradling newly born Kielle and dad, Kier, decided it was the perfect moment for a bit of a lullaby to his daughter.

But it seems like Kielle had a different idea about the tune and gave her parents the finger. Sure, she's a couple of hours old and way too young to even know what that means, but it's hilarious.

Kier said: "I'm sure it was just a reflex, but it's still funny."

But what about this little girl who still probably didn't know what she was doing but knew it was a thing.

Hannah Earley, 33, married Nathan Earley, 31, in November 2018 - only for little Maddison, aged just three, to choose an untimely moment to show off something new that she had learned.

"It was a beautiful day and I was so excited about the wedding. I'd hired a photographer to take some photos of everyone," remembers Hannah, who lives in Old Bar, a town on the Central Coast of New South Wales in Australia.

"At that point, we'd just had the ceremony, and then we decided to go off to the side to have some family photos taken.

"All of a sudden she just popped it up to show everyone. There were lots of people standing around watching her, so I think she just thought why not do it."

"She had learned that little trick just a few days before but had no idea what it meant. But she knew that she would get a strong reaction from it."

The new trick, of course, being sticking her middle finger up. Luckily, everyone thought the incident was funny, rather than offensive, and of course, the small child in question wasn't really aware of what she was doing.

"All my wedding guests who were watching us get the photos done started cracking up laughing. I'll never forget it. She did it for nearly a month straight. It was funny but I'm glad she's stopped doing it now."

The professional photographer that they had hired actually deleted the offending photos, but Hannah's sister Sharon had also been snapping at the time and captured the moment for posterity.
