When Katina Behm’s photogenic younger brother Aristotle, then 28, decided to move to New York from California to pursue modelling, she decided to mock his pouty poses to keep him grounded.
She got her one-year-old son Augie to comically replicate his serious shots in matching outfits and posted the side-by-side pictures on social media.
Some of the shots show smouldering Aristotle working his abs wearing just a pair of jeans, next to the sweet tot giving his best model face in his own tiny pair of trousers.
Other photos show the tot beating the model at his own game posing in sunglasses, next to pizza and even doing handstands.
Unsurprisingly, the sweet Instagram account, @babyandthebody, has boomed in popularity and now has a staggering 71,500 followers, who have fallen in love with the pair.
Katina said the page is now an ongoing family joke and she emails all the latest pictures to her elderly grandma who isn’t on Instagram.
She said she had the idea for the laugh-out-loud page when little Augie was unhappy about getting dressed one day.
He was walking round the house with his shirt unbuttoned, and Katina said she found a picture of Aristotle that looked really similar.
Speaking to Today, she said: “I found a picture of my brother that looked like that and I sent it to my family and said, ‘Who wore it better?’ They were just laughing and saying I should share them online.”
Baby and the Body was born in December 2016, and Katina said she tries to update it once a week with a new mocking shot.
Good sport Aristotle can thankfully see the funny side in the account, which actually has more followers than his own page of 59,600 followers.
He said: “I’m perfectly fine with her making fun of me. I thought it was hilarious.”
Katina said that she doesn’t push Augie to do the pictures, but they have bonded over the shoots.
She added: “If he’s into it and it’s a struggle then we take a break and we play. We do it for fun.”
