Pregnancy viral dance video

I'll tell you what I was doing when I was eight months pregnant with my twins, right about this time last year: I was riding around in a motorozed cart at Target because I was too winded, and too big, to even walk the aisles for those last-minute essentials!

Well, eight-months-pregnant mom Nikki Taylor is much more mobile—and in great spirits, too.

The expecting Illinois mom choreographed a high-energy dance routine, which she performed alongside her six-year-old daughter in a video that's now going viral. The clip showing the mother-daughter dance got 20 million views over just the first 48 hours alone, and now has more than 22 million views and 600,000 shares since Nikki posted it to Facebook on June 26!

As the two dancers get ready to perform together in front of a wall of family photos, daughter Jaylyn sets the stage. Speaking right to the camera with her missing front teeth, she introduces herself and her mom, saying, "My mom is going to rock. But don't laugh at her!" Then the song "Watch Me" by rapper Silento comes on, and the two turn on the energy.

Nikki captioned the video, "She kills me, im winded.. but this is as good as it gets lmao." True indeed!

Nikki's expecting a son this summer, and Jaylyn couldn't be happier. During her moment in the spotlight, Jaylyn told the camera, "I love my baby brother!"

We suspect this expanded family will share many happy dances together in the coming years. Congrats!
