A baby’s baptism is a joyous time, where the parents and family celebrate the welcoming of a child into the church community. If you have ever attended one of the beautiful ceremonies, there’s a high chance the baby didn’t behave appropriately and the parents were mortified in front of their family and church congregation.
There’s so much happening during the ceremony that babies normally feel overwhelmed by everything going on around them and their only reaction is to cry bloody murder!
Gustavo Guimaraes, a 10-month-old baby from Campo Limpo Paulista, Brazil, surprised everyone at his baptism at the Santa Luzia Catholic Parish when he showed so much excitement to get picked up by the priest and get immersed in the baptismal font. He was so happy, laughing and smiling at everyone and even clapping his little hands when he came out of the water… Even the priest couldn’t believe his eyes!
The ceremony was filmed to be shown to friends and relatives who couldn’t be present at the event, but after seeing Gustavo’s reaction to his baptism, the parents decided to share the video on Facebook, which went viral very quickly. The video has already amassed more than 4 million views.
Juliane Guimaraes, Gustavo’s mother, said she was concerned about him crying when picked up by the priest, but she was certain he would enjoy the experience, since there was water involved.
”He actually had fun! He loves water and since he started crawling, we have to lock the bathroom door whenever we take a shower, otherwise he will find a way to come in and try to get in the water”, the proud mother said to Uol.
Watch the video below and let us know if you laughed at Gustavo’s cuteness as much as we did!
