NOW that we're all addicted to TikTok, the video-sharing platform has created many unlikely internet stars – including "Big Baby".
Last year, three-year-old Gavin became a viral sensation when his mum posted a hilarious video of him playing with baby powder on his dad's back while dancing to heavy rap music.
The viral clip has since racked up over 14.7 MILLION views and inspired Gavin's mum Kat to share even more clips of the sweet baby-faced tot.
In one TikTok, "Big Baby" pretends to heavy-lift his toy truck outside his family's farm in America's Midwest.
And in another, Gavin is seen happily diving into some mud and being pulled around by the legs by his 16-year-old brother Caleb.
Speaking about her toddler's internet success, Kat told Buzzfeed News that she purposefully set out to make Gavin a TikTok star.
After her eldest son introduced her to TikTok in April last year, Kat said: "I woke up on Sunday and I said to my husband 'I'm going to make him famous' and it happened."
By the next morning, the first video of Gavin playing with baby powder had already racked up thousands of views.
"My 16-year-old, Caleb, he woke me and said I had so many views," she added.
But Gavin's internet fame has also resulted in cruel comments from social media users about his "gigantic" size.
In response to the criticism, Kat told Insider that her son was 6 pounds, 15 ounces when he was born – but that there are "big genetics in the family".
The mum continued: "I want to bring happiness to people, I don't want the negativity.
"But every online famous person is going to get the negative stuff."
However, Kat wants to continue sharing the hilarious clips of her youngest on her TikTok channel to "bring joy to people" in light of the coronavirus crisis.
She added: "I wish I had a mom-cam on myself because I can’t capture all the stuff he does!"
