Babies are adorable. Babies who unexpectedly intrude on a romantic moment, crawl through a posed photo, or pop up behind the family pets are even more adorable. These hilarious photos of baby photobombers will absolutely make your day.
Conquering the Photobomb
Reddit user WatermelonPOWAH posted this adorable photo of his son conquering the photobomb, something so many of us only dream of doing in our lifetime. In the foreground, a cute baby smiles at the camera, but your eye is immediately drawn to something hilarious that’s going on in the distance.
That’s right! It’s another adorable baby standing next to a yellow and blue toy car, pulling up his shirt to proudly show off his baby belly for the camera. While both babies are absolutely adorable, we have to say the photobombing baby knows how to steal the spotlight in this photo.
This Grumpy Photobomb Steals the Spotlight
Instagram user hollymay regularly posts photos of herself, Hollie, and her daughter, Mable, on their everyday adventures. In this funny photo, Holly is posing for a stunning selfie, while her daughter Mable sits in the car in the backseat.
The look on Mable’s face is completely priceless. Her pout seems to say, “Okay, Mom, time to stop taking selfies so we can go!” The best thing about babies and toddlers is they can never seem to hide exactly what they’re thinking. The grumpy photobomb makes this one family photo that is definitely worth printing out and framing, or at least worth showing her when she’s older.
Baby Toes Steal the Spotlight
This Reddit mom who goes by the username nollie_ollie just wanted to take a selfie of herself and her son together, but his tiny baby toes had something to say about that. This squirmy baby shoved his foot right in front of the camera!
Of course, most Reddit commenters agreed that this baby photobomb only made the mother-son photo even more adorable, with lenimarie commenting, “Cute baby toes! Love it,” and ZouBisouBisou writing, “Cutest photobomb EVER.” His mom joked that her son took after her, writing, “He’s got my ‘money toes!’” Those adorable digits definitely make this shot something special.
This Baby Wants Some Dippin’ Dots
This photo posted by Reddit user tixier shows three friends enjoying some ice cream of the future—and one very jealous baby. While the girls in the foreground joke around with cups of Dippin’ Dots, the baby in the background totally steals the spotlight.
If the look on this curious baby’s face could talk, it would probably say, “If you’re not going to eat your ice cream, I will!” While the girls in the foreground of the photo seem completely oblivious to the baby pouting for the camera behind them, the woman holding him is laughing along, clearly in on the joke.
Baby’s First Photobomb
Reddit user kewlfocus is responsible for this adorable baby photobomb, which garnered 274 comments in the thread. The poster’s son was just ten months old when he achieved the kind of photobomb greatness most of us can only dream about.
The table appears to be set up for an adult party by his parents, with a decadent looking chocolate cake, candies, chocolate covered strawberries, brownies, and cookies covering the table. However, this baby definitely makes this would-be sophisticated photo a hundred times cuter with his excited grin. The post was made three years ago, so this little baby is well into his toddler photobombing stage by now.
This Cat Turned the Tables
Sometimes it’s the babies doing the photobombing, but sometimes the baby gets photobombed. In this hilarious photo, Reddit user XXIX29’s baby daughter got photobombed by the family cat, who decided it was time to turn the tables.
Apparently, the user was trying to capture a photo of every parent’s proudest moment: when your child starts to stand. One Reddit user warned the poster that knocking a cat on Reddit was major mistake, but the original poster asked, “Does it help if I state that he’s a rescue cat found in the wild?” It looks like this rescue cat needed a little extra attention.
The Baby on the Train
The Instagram user cr8gfu posted this adorable black and white snap of a baby photobomb from the North Carolina Transportation Museum. The poster was setting up for a selfie on the train sporting sunglasses and a hat, when a little baby peeked around the seat behind him.
The user, who is a dad of five children from California and Oregon who is currently living in North Carolina, fittingly captioned the photo, “Baby like ‘Who Dat?’”This adorable selfie clearly took an ordinary trip to the Transportation Museum to the a much more adorable level thanks to this curious baby’s photobomb.
This Curious Baby Is Ready to Go
Instagram user mserickahope posted this adorable photobomb. While mom was busy taking a stunning selfie in front of the mirror, her baby leaned forward in the stroller to check out what was going on.
The curious baby is all dressed up in a coat and a tiny hat, and the baby’s facial expression says, “Come on, Mom! I’m ready to go outside and play in the snow!” The Instagram user captioned the photo with “But first… #babyphotobomb.” If there’s one thing that can take any Instagram selfie to the next level, it’s definitely a cute and impatient baby who is photobombing.
This Two-Year-Old Just Couldn’t Resist
Reddit user incredibissell, a nanny of a two-year-old posted an adorable photobomb after she’d just finished baking a thunder cake, based on the book Thunder Cake by Patricia Polacco, with the toddler. In the book, a young girl and her grandmother bake a cake during a storm while counting the seconds between lightning and thunder.
Apparently, the chocolate and strawberry cake was just too good to resist, because before she was able to snap a photo, the little one’s hand appeared to swipe some icing. The nanny called this photobomb “perfect” and we definitely have to agree with that assessment.
So Much Cake!
Instagram user danger_danglish, Daniel English, posted this hilarious baby photobomb. The photo, from a friend’s 27th birthday, shows an excited young woman grinning and gesturing to a Dairy Queen ice cream cake decorated with candles and an icing cartoon of someone grilling.
However, if there’s one person who is more excited than she is about the cake, it’s the baby in the background who is hanging over the table, mouth open, with an expression of awe on his face as though he’s about to start salivating. When it comes to ice cream cake, we’re right there with you, tiny baby.
This Baby on a Bike
Fashion blogger Nicole Corrales takes some stunning photos of her daily looks, but this time a surprise was waiting in the background of her posed fashion photo. Corrales posted the photo on her Twitter account (@niicolecorrales).
Behind the well-dressed blogger is one very determined baby pedaling furiously on a bike. The baby has some serious fashion skills of her own—dressed in a bright pink t-shirt and floral print leggings—and the serious expression on her face makes the photo that much more hilarious. Though this fashion blogger is no stranger to great photos, this might be her best photo ever.
Baby vs. Model
Russian-American model Anne Vyalitsyna was trying to capture a cool shot for her Instagram account at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City in front of a large, colorful painting, but her baby had other ideas. In the corner of her photo, a man points to the painting with Anne’s daughter in his arms.
Anne captioned the Instagram photograph, “When you try to take a photo and your baby photobombs your picture.” Despite a photobomb by this curious baby, it’s safe to say this is still one amazing shot, even if it didn’t go exactly as the model had originally planned.
The Climbing Baby
Twitter user Fit-N-Fab Mom (@FitNFabmom1) posted a photo showing off her fit figure in a mirror selfie, but it also captured her baby, who was getting a workout by climbing all over the crib and bed in the background of the shot.
The Twitter user captioned the shot with “Air Max kinda day! There is a lil monkey hiding in the background.” Her climbing daughter proves this isn’t just a fit and fabulous mom—she’s also raising a fit family. Plus, her adorable and active daughter with some seriously enviable photobombing skills. It must be a workout just to keep up with her!
Girls’ Night Out
Twitter user Missy (@missyayg) posted a photo of herself and friends enjoying a girls’ night out enjoying an evening of cheering on the San Diego Gulls at a hockey match. While the women smile in the foreground, an adorable baby decided to join in on the fun by peeking through their shoulders in the background.
Though the baby has a binky, it’s clear that there’s some serious joy on the baby’s face. This girls’ night out photo proves you don’t have to call the sitter to have an amazing time with some friends. Plus, what girls’ night out couldn’t use a cute baby to photobomb some selfies?
Back to School Day
Twitter user Andrea (@azoconnor) set out to snap a photo of her three school-aged children on back to school day, but her youngest just couldn’t contain her excitement. As the three older children line up against the wall and smile, the toddler came running through the room with her arms thrown up in the air and a huge grin on her face.
Andrea captioned the photo, “Back to school day doesn’t just make moms happy.” Judging by her youngest daughter’s expression, she’s also excited for her older siblings to go back to school. We can’t help but grin just like this baby photobomber when we look at this shot.
The Purr-fect Photobomb
Twitter user Seth, who uses the handle @SethHay posted this shot of his orange cat, Mikey, who definitely doesn’t look pleased with the photobombing baby Davey in the background. Davey’s expression is totally nonchalant, like he’s saying, “Hey, this is my photo too now, pal,” but the cat seems seriously grumpy that this baby ruined his shot.
The best part about this photo is that it looks like it could’ve come straight out of a Garfield cartoon. Both the exasperated cat’s expression and the confident baby’s expression couldn’t have possible been drawn any better than they were in real life.
Who Is Cuter?
The internet’s two favorite things are funny babies and adorable animals, and it’s easy to see why. Twitter user Greg on the Radio (@GregOnRadio) posted an adorable photo combining both of those things with the caption, “Need something cute on your Thursday? Here ya go.”
That something cute was almost too cute to handle. In the foreground of the photo, a worn-out dog yawns. In the background, a grinning baby peeks his head out of a playhouse. We can only imagine the baby has been playing hide and seek with this tired pup all day. We can’t choose which one is cuter. (Okay, it’s the photobombing baby.)
Fit mom Alexandra posts snaps of her yoga moves and her family to her Instagram at alex.fit.girl, but this hilarious photo unexpectedly combined the two when a photobombing baby crawled into the shot. In the background, Alexandra is doing a flying crow yoga move, but the foreground is what really captures your attention.
The blonde-haired baby, dressed in polka dots, crawled right in front of the camera to give a slight smile that almost makes her look like she knew exactly what she was doing. We have to say, difficult yoga poses do look a lot more fun when there’s a cute baby in the room.
Wandering into the Shot
The jewelry making mom behind the Instagram account UnderwaterHawaii posts tons of shots of her adorable children and their adventures together, from their home in Hawaii to as far as Switzerland. However, this shot wasn’t quite as planned as some of the other posed family photos.
While the mom behind the account posed with a coffee in front of Fonville Press, her son wandered into the shot, also drinking from a plastic cup, trying his best to imitate his number one role model. This adorable family shot was totally made by this tiny photobomber who clearly inherited his traveling mom’s wanderlust.
The Escaping Baby
Instagram user @darlingletsgo just wanted to take a mirror selfie with a cool printed dress that had just come in at her boutique, but something in the background steals all the attention away from the new outfit. In the bottom right corner of the mirror, a speedy baby is making a daring getaway.
This tiny photobomber is clearly on the move as she crawls almost out of frame. While the dress is adorable, it doesn’t hold a candle to this even more adorable mirror selfie-bombing baby. We can’t help but wonder if the trendy store carries any cute baby clothes.
