Gran Recoils From ‘Ugly Baby’ Not Realising She’s ‘FaceTiming The Parents’

A hilarious yet awkward moment has been caught on camera when a grandson decided to try and trick his grandma into believing she was FaceTiming the parents of someone’s baby she had just recoiled at. 

Stewart McGonigle decided to prank his grandma by showing her a newborn on his phone whilst she was cleaning the kitchen.

In the video, Stewart walks over to his gran and asks her to look at the “photo” of the newborn.

He says: “Oh nan look, Annie had a wean.”

The gran then peers over at the photo and it is clear that she is grimacing at the “photo” of the baby. She then pulls a face and says: “Did she? Oh god!”

The grandson then tells his gran that her reaction to the baby had been seen (and heard) by the parents.

The gran immediately changes her reaction to the baby, absolutely mortified that she had no idea.

She says: “She’s a nice wee wean isn’t she?”

Prankster Stewart then responds by saying “she” is actually a boy.

Having had enough of being embarrassed, the gran then asks her grandson to take his phone away from her.

She says: “Aye she’s…I’m doing something Stewart take it away.”
