It doesn't get much sweeter than this.
After a baby went viral earlier this week for her resemblance to Woody Harrelson, the legendary actor penned a poem to his little lookalike.
On August 3, 2022, Dani Grier Mulvenna, an Irish mother, according to her Twitter account, shared a side-by-side photo of Harrelson with her baby daughter Cora, underscoring the striking resemblance between the shape of their bright blue eyes, matching undereye wrinkles, and toothy grins. “Ok but how does our daughter look like Woody Harreslon [sic],” she captioned the tweet.
“Outrageous!” one commenter agreed.
“So much!!! What a cutie!!” said another.
It quickly went viral, and Mulvenna followed up shortly after with another shot of Cora sitting up and smiling for the camera. “Cora says, thank you all so much for the likes and retweets and also that she doesn't always look like Woody Harreslon [sic], it's just that when she does...she really really does xxx,” she wrote.
Harrelson hasn’t used his Twitter since 2017, but the post still somehow made its way back to him. The following day, he shared a screenshot of the original tweet on his Instagram account, with an ode to Cora in the caption.
“You're an adorable child
Flattered to be compared
You have a wonderful smile
I just wish I had your hair,” he wrote, much to the internet’s—and her mum’s—delight.
“You've made our day ❤️ can't wait to show her this when she's older, you have another fan for life xxx,” Mulvenna commented on Instagram, before tweeting a screenshot of his post, bringing the entire counter full circle.
After all, “It's not every day Woody Harreslon [sic] writes your daughter a poem .”
