I have never seen or heard of this sort of thing happening until now... This really young baby has the ability to stand on it's own at the ripe age of eight weeks old!
A dad whose baby learned to stand at just eight weeks old has joked she may have been inspired by watching him view strongman clips on YouTube.
Tezra Finn-Johnston, 31, and girlfriend Emily Derrick, 23, from Kingswood, Bristol, first noticed their daughter Lula’s strength when they left hospital after her birth.
Even at that early stage she was able to support her own head, they say.
Little Lula was born on 31 January weighing just 5lbs 9oz and was on the fifth percentile, which means she weighed less than 5% of other babies the same age.
Now 15 weeks old, the tot is able to stand unassisted, supporting her own weight.
The new dad first spotted his daughter’s unusual leg strength when she was around a month old.
“She was having a tantrum and I tried to sit her on my knee to calm her,” Finn-Johnston says.
“Instead of sitting down, she just stood on my knee and wouldn’t bend her legs.
“She did it a few more times later on in the weeks – eventually I thought, well, if she can do it while she’s annoyed, maybe she can do it when she’s happy.”
