Whether hungry, sad, angry, or lonely, it is not uncommon for human babies to cry until their needs are met by their parent or guardian. Pikotaro, the viral comic sensation who brought us the Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen video in 2016, welcomed a daughter into hia world.
The newborn infant girl was born on Father’s Day, June 17th, and it looks like she will be following in her daddy’s footsteps as an Internet sensation.
Via social media, Pikotaro (Civilian Identity: Daimaou Kosaka) uploaded a variety of updates showing off the new addition to his family life. The mother of Pikotaro’s daughter is his wife Hitomi Yasueda, a popular Japanese swimsuit model.
One photo posted to Twitter has already exploded with over 92,000 favorites and 10,00 comments.
Another shows mother holding daughter just after the birth.
Pikotaro’s Tweet reads “Today is Father’s Day, which is an often overlooked occasion compared to Mother’s Day. But my daughter has given me the world’s best present.”
The present? None other than validation of the hit song that made Daddy famous!
Pikotaro’s Tweet is referring to a home video he shot. The video begins with his newborn daughter crying. Pikotaro responds by playing audio of his famous jingle.
The infant begins to settle down before stopping her crying completely. As soon as the main part of the song begins and Pikotaro starts singing, the child appears to calm miraculously.
Could it be possible that she was so soothed because she became familiar with the voice of her beloved father whilst still in her mother’s womb? Perhaps she simply loves a catchy tune. Maybe at just a couple days old, she understands she was born into a family of notoriety and fame.
Regardless of the reason, Pikotaro couldn’t be prouder! The comedian-musician beams with admiration.
