One toddler was less than impressed to meet her new baby brother, refusing to kiss or even hold him. In a hilarious video that’s now going viral, the girl shows no emotion as the newborn is placed in her arms.
“UNIMPRESSED: This toddler doesn’t appear to be too thrilled to meet her baby brother, hilariously staring plainly into the camera, barely acknowledging the new addition to the family,” the post, shared on Monday by ABC7 News, describes.
The clip shows a woman attempting to hand baby Coleman to young Ella, who sits frozen with her hands on her lap, looking bored. “Want to give him a kiss, sweetie?” her dad asks from behind the camera. Ella has no reaction, continuing to stare blankly ahead, even when the woman demonstrates kissing the infant’s forehead.
“Her shocking reaction is priceless…” wrote dad Jordan Jeremias of Holly Springs, N.C. on Facebook.

With nearly 7.5 million views and over 2,200 likes so far, the Internet is loving the video. “Omg! This will be a hilarious family memory for generations!” said one user, while another commented, “1st lesson of life, it’s not always going to be about you #welcome2lifekid.”
And some parents even shared their own stories of less-than-thrilled older siblings. “My mom said my sister took one look at me and said, ‘I don’t like her, take her back,'” wrote one viewer. Fortunately for Jeremias and his wife, many commenters added that their children grew out of the sibling envy, saying, “Just takes time before their feelings kick in!”
