Look Closely, Do You See Why This Photo Of Obama Is Raising Eyebrows?

A 6-month-old girl in Alaska is now a mini internet celebrity thanks to former President Barack Obama.

Barack Obama may not be president anymore, but his legendary baby-whispering skills are apparently still going strong, after photos of his encounter with a baby at an Alaska airport were circulated widely on social media.

While in a waiting area for private flights at Anchorage International Airport on Monday, Obama, who was on his way home after a trip to Asia, spotted 6-month-old Giselle and her mother, Jolene Jackinsky, of Anchorage.

Jackinsky told CNN that Obama walked up and asked “Who is this pretty girl?” before scooping up the adorable infant, who was sporting a ribboned sun hat.

Giselle was calm and content during the brief encounter, Jackinsky said. “It was only five minutes but it was a moment that will last forever,” she said.

They chatted about how fast children grow while Obama carried baby Giselle. Jackinsky took a few photos of a smiling Obama carrying Giselle, who was wearing a straw hat with a white ribbon.

She posted the photos on Facebook.

“I think it’s unreal and pretty exciting that I get to have a picture with him and my baby,” she said. “Not a lot of people get to meet him.”

“Will never get enough of this baby’s expressions, like she KNOWS she’s meeting Pres Obama,” said one tweet.
