Ok so who is the baby in that viral TikTok shoulder wiggle dance video?
She really sums up what it feels like when his name pops up on your screen
Ever get a text from that certain person and it makes you do a little happy dance? You know the one I mean with a shoulder wiggle and a big smile on your face? Well now there’s a baby on TikTok who does it perfectly and it’s safe to say everyone is collectively obsessed.
It feels like every other video on my For You Page is that baby wiggling her shoulders whilst sat in her floatie in a swimming pool. And people are taking the video and combining it with a caption usually about that one guy you like or when someone does something nice. It could be when “his name pops up on your phone” or “when he kisses your forehead when you’re sleeping”.
People either stitch the video with their own face looking happy about the moment or simply caption it above the baby. Some of the videos have received millions of views, but who exactly is the baby in the original video?
Who is the viral TikTok dancing baby?

Seeing as Laine is only one there isn’t loads to know about her however an important thing to note is the shoulder wiggle wasn’t just a one off.
Laine is regularly recorded doing the wiggle dance in many different moments including sitting in her highchair and at taco Tuesday. She’s a girl after my own heart.
