Baby Only Smiles For Wine in Adorable Viral Video (Don't Worry—She Didn't Drink It!)
She's a wine-lover in the making: This fussy baby girl is already giggling for a glass of red without ever trying a drop.
She rejects a plate of pasta. It's a no-go on the bottle. A pacifier? No thank you! But a glass of red wine? Now this baby girl is all smiles!
A hilarious Facebook video of a hard-to-please baby named Abigail, who lights up when a big glass of mommy juice is placed on her high chair tray, is going viral. Because babies. And wine. The short clip has been shared more than 13,000 times, and has received nearly half a million views at time of writing.
Don't worry: The baby doesn't drink the delicious-looking vino. Her parents, Yssel Jaquez and Rafael Aybar, say the stunt was just for laughs.
"We were just having dinner and when she doesn't want more food or is sleepy, she starts to be cranky," Jaquez told ABC News, adding, "I think people like it so much because of her laugh and her reaction when she sees the wine."
The Florida dad admits he and his wife have been criticized for the video, natch. "[There are] many different opinions about the video and the fact that we 'give' wine to a baby. It's just a funny video and we've never provided alcohol to our kids and never will," he clarifies.
