The tweet quickly went viral, but as quickly as the (arguably adorable) snap flooded our news feeds, it was gone.

Like this little cutie-pie.

For the LAST TIME, JOHN looks like a baby so A LOT OF BABIES LOOK LIKE HIM STOP SENDING ME JOHN BABIES

Oh, and for the record, this is what John Legend’s actual baby looks like:
