People Are Appropriately Freaking Out ’Cause This 2-Year-Old Looks Just Like Ed Sheeran

"This is fucking me up lol."

Posted on

Isla is an adorable baby girl who also seems to SHARE THE DNA OF SINGER ED SHEERAN. She doesn't — BuzzFeed News can confirm — but her mom said they've been getting comments about their resemblance "for a while" now.

"I did get comments from our family that she looks like Ed for a while, but only last week did we decide to put [the photo] online," Walton said.

Walton also has another kid, a 5-year-old son named Alfie — but he does not look like Ed Sheeran.

Walton did not anticipate, however, that Isla would get worldwide attention for it. User @1TD, whom Walton does not know IRL, somehow came across the photo and tweeted it out with the hilarious suggestion that she looked "more like Ed Sheeran than Ed Sheeran." People were shook.

Why does this baby look more like Ed Sheeran than Ed Sheeran does?

The user's tweet has gone viral, with over 81,000 retweets.

The reactions are a general mix of speechlessness, laughter, and bewilderment.

@chloe_watling @1TD they're so alike omg😂😂😂

Thus is fucking me up lol https://t.co/XEuB1xFIq9

Some are convinced Ed is the father.

And are straight-up tagging the singer.

Someone asked him to "please get this baby to play you in your next video." BuzzFeed News co-signs this.

@1TD @ceewestbrooks @edsheeran please get this baby to play you in your next video 😂😂😂

"I think the attention is mindblowing," Walton said. "The family didn't realize it would be this big."

@1TD @voguegays I M LAUGHING MY ASS OFF SHE IS TOO CUTE TO HANDLE BUT I FOUND THIS SO FUNY 😂
