Baby Performs Push-Ups Alongside Dad in Cutest Video

An adorable video of a man instructing his baby to do push-ups has gone viral on TikTok.

The video was shared to the app by Charlie Todd, known online as Thebandman16, and begins with a small child lying on his front in a nursery with a pacifier in his mouth.

Todd, who is in plank position next to his young son, then says: "Alright little man, six months so you've got six push-ups."

He then tells the little child to go "up" and the baby follows in a move which is almost a push-up, before copying his father to complete five of the maneuvers between giggles.

Text overlaying the video reads: "6 months 6 push-ups this video will never get old."

The baby, although obviously not doing perfect push-ups, looks utterly adorable as he mimics his dad, who is a personal trainer.

Todd has captioned the video, writing: "Reminiscent of when my son did this. 6 months 6 push-ups."

The sweet moment, which has been posted over the weekend and can be watched here, has been viewed 1.2 million times and surpassed 195,300 likes.

Many people have taken to the comments section to share their opinions on the cute family moment.
