Ingredients for an instant Internet Sensation: Cute baby (check), soldier (check)...who is returning home from deployment (check), that Carly Rae Jepsen song you STILL can't get out of your head (check).
Here's the situation: the baby is seven months old, her name's Harper and her mom, or whoever helped her with this sign, is a total genius. As she sat in the airport waiting to greet her father who was returning home from Afghanistan, she was holding this sign that said "Hey I just met you and this is crazy, but my name's Harper & I'm your baby!"
The photo was posted to the WOWT Facebook page on March 3 and already has over 1.5 million likes and 90,000 shares. We wish there was a video of him seeing the sign, but we're pretty sure we can picture what his response was like, anyway. After all, we've seen enough of those soldiers returning home to their dogs videos so we know the drill.
If you're not a dog person, try to picture it like a Maury Povich "you ARE the father" kind of thing...but for someone who wanted to be the baby daddy.
