LOOK: 2-year-old Ed Sheeran mini-me shakes up Twitter
Ed Sheeran might have found another look-alike suitable to star in any of his upcoming music videos—a 2-year-old girl.
While the 26-year-old British crooner is expunging records for his album “Divide,” an adorable and charming Isla Walton is causing a whirlwind on Twitter.
“Why does this baby look more like Ed Sheeran than Ed Sheeran does?” Twitter user Tom Davies asked Twitterverse on Friday. Aside from creative and droll answers to his question, Davies’ tweet accumulated 180,000 likes and 81,000 retweets as of this writing.
The chipper craze all started when Isla’s aunt posted Isla’s photo on social media, which was re-shared by many people, including Davies.
“Everyone has been saying that Isla looks like him for a long time and I never thought anything of it,” Isla’s mother told Britsh news site Daily Mail. “It was when my sister Stacey put it online we got loads of comments from people.”
She added,”I look at Isla sometimes and just think ‘wow’ and people have pointed out to her who she looks like. Now, she likes to watch him on TV.”
Due to her newfound fame online, Isla is now listening to Sheeran’s hits and even fancies listening to his mellow voice on TV. “Everyone comments saying how she’s a mini Ed [Sheeran], and I call her baby Sheeran. She loves his music [and] tries to sing along to the words and has a dance,” Stacey told The Sun.
Little Isla is not the first person regarded as a doppelgänger of Sheeran. “Harry Potter” alumnus and English actor Rupert Grint has also been likened to Sheeran many times and even appeared in his music video for “Lego House” in 2011. Likewise, another ginger-haired Sheeran “twin” also starred in his recent single “Castle on the Hill.” Gianna Francesa Catolico /ra
