Teletubbies has been every 90s kid's favourite cartoon. It is a British pre-school children's television program in which are four multi-coloured creatures known as 'Teletubbies'. They spoke gibberish and soon became every child's favourite. And now they have once again become the centre of attention, thanks to a tweet. One of the characters in the show was called Sun Baby, which is a real Sun with the face of a real human baby. Over the years, Jess Smith, the baby who played the Sun has grown up and become an adult. And recently, a photo of Jessica Smith holding a baby went viral on social media. It's a Girl!

The tweet reads, "The Teletubbies sun baby has a baby." Greg retweeted it saying, "This has made me feel 800 years old."
