Social media’s newest obsession is a series of TikTok videos starring what appears to be a very large infant.

The so-called “big baby” is actually not a baby at all — he’s a 3-year-old named Gavin.

His mom, who goes by the name kat.027 on TikTok, shared a video of the child bouncing on a man’s back with a hip-hop song playing in the background.

Since she posted it on April 19, it has been viewed more than 10 million times.

Many commenters shared the same thought.

“I can’t tell if the baby is 4 months old or 4 years old,” one user wrote.

“This baby looks like he already has an office job and a perfect credit score,” another said.

Kat.027 spoke to Insider about her toddler’s newfound fame.

“I want to bring happiness to people, I don’t want the negativity,” she said. “But every online famous person is going to get the negative stuff.”

The family lives on a small farm in the United States, where kat.027 says she’s been working and parenting full-time in quarantine. She’s had a hard time keeping up with all of the comments.

Kat.027 told Insider that Gavin was born a normal-sized baby, but he’s big for three years old.

“Everyone wants to make fun of him because he’s big. He’s just a big boy,” she said.

She’s posted several videos of Gavin, in which he rides on a tractor, dresses up like the main character from the movie “Boss Baby” and naps after eating Easter candy.

Kat.027 doesn’t have plans to stop posting videos of her son any time soon.

“We have thick skin, we’re raised tough,” she told Insider.
