WATCH: 7-week-old baby says 'hello'

Watch the video of the baby who seems to be developing very early!

A seven-week-old baby has surprised his parents by apparently saying ‘hello’. 

Mum Toni McCann, from Belfast in Northern Ireland, caught the tiny tot on video as she was chatting to him, and he seems to repeat the word in an amazing show of early development. 

Perhaps it was just mistaken baby mumbling, but it does sound like the word ‘hello’. 

Babies are normally chatting away happily by seven months, but seven weeks is very early!
