This adorable baby boy has been dubbed Mowgli after the Disney Jungle Book character by his parents thanks to his thick mop of jet black hair.
20-week-old Oscar Jones’ hair was so long that it was spotted on the scan before he was born, with sonographers estimating that it was already 1cm long!
But parents Sara Morris and Joshua Jones were blown away when Oscar was born at 7lb 8oz with stunning 5cm of thick jet black hair. Thanks to his long mane, Oscar had his first haircut at just eight weeks old.
Oscars’s parents revealed that they are always getting stopped in the street by admirers who notice his long mop. “People on the street come over to us and comment on Oscar’s lovely thick hair.” She said.
“We really couldn’t believe just how much hair he had when he was born. It’s not something you see very often. His hair was, and is, very thick, and very black. Joshua and I have brown hair, though he’s closer to his dad than to me for that.” Sara told DailyMail.
“Oscar’s aware that he has so much hair, I think. When we lie him down, he’ll put his arms over his head and play with it. But he’ll start crying when he accidentally pulls it, because his fingers get tangled up.
“Joshua and I had watched The Jungle Book in December, so maybe the film was fresh on my mind when Oscar was born.” She added.
Sarah further revealed that she suffered with pregnancy diabetes and experienced intense heartburn while she was expectant with her son.
“I struggled with pregnancy diabetes, and there was a whole week in May where I suffered with this intense heartburn. We went for a regular checkup, and learned that Oscar had 1cm of hair already, so we were expecting him to have some head hair when he was born. But we didn’t expect quite as much as we got.
“I took one look at him and said ‘He looks just like Mowgli!’ Everyone else then looked and said ‘Yeah, you’re right. He’s Mowgli.’” She said.
“Joshua’s parents have taken to calling him little Mowgli ever since. It started because of his hair, but he’s also very cheeky, so I think it will stick.” She added.
Oscar who was born on July 10, now has a whopping 12cm of hair on his head.
Such beautiful hair baby Oscar has, he is absolutely gorgeous!
