Ten-Week-Old Baby Says 'I Love You' In Jaw-Dropping Footage
A mind-blowing video of a 10-week-old baby saying 'I love you' has gone viral.
Proud mum Kesia Cameron, who lives in New York, was holding her baby son Roan in her lap and telling him 'I love you', when Roan managed to repeat the sentence almost perfectly.
The adorable moment was captured on film, and you can watch the full clip here:
Incredibly, you can really hear all three words - with the right intonation and everything!
We have a feeling little Roan is going to grow up to be one bright spark - and a chatterbox too.
The cute video was posted by Roan's grandma Lara Skadsen online, where it went viral and clocked up over one million views.
Commentators were blown away by Roan's vocal skills.
One user said: "He said it loud and clear, God bless him."

According to Healthline, babies typically say their first word between 10 to 14 months of age.
By the time a baby is a year old, he or she will probably be able to say between one to three words.
These are likely to be simple and incomplete words but it will apparent what they mean.
Common examples would be "ma-ma" or "da-da" or perhaps the name of a sibling, pet, or favourite toy.
At just 10-weeks old, Roan's repetition of the words 'I love you' is jaw-droppingly impressive and way ahead of typical vocal development.
The NHS advise that between the ages of 0-6 months you can help your baby learn to talk by:
- Holding your baby close and look at them as you talk to them. Babies love faces and will watch you and respond as you talk.
- Chatting about what you're doing as you feed, change and bathe them.
- Singing to your baby - this helps them tune in to the rhythm of language.
- Repeating the sounds your baby makes back to them - this teaches your baby lessons about listening and taking turns in a conversation.
- Talking in a sing-song voice - this helps to keep your baby's attention.
