The 'world's most emotional baby' appears on Ellen

The Leroux family appear on the <i>Ellen</i> show.

The Leroux family appear on the Ellen show.

You might remember this little munchkin from a few weeks ago, but have a look at what happened when she met Ellen DeGeneres.

After a heart wrenching video of 10-month-old Mary Lynne Leroux's teary response to her mum's singing went viral in October, her parents, made an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Mum Amanda outlined video's backstory, explaining that she sings to her daughter a lot around the house.

One day, she sang along to Sara Evans' version of "My Heart Can't Tell You No" when it was on the radio, and noticed the baby crying.

"I figured it was a fluke... and then it started playing, I think a few days later it played again and once again I started singing along with it, and she actually started reacting the same way." Her husband didn't believe her when she told him about it, so she captured the reaction on film. And apparently, it's "just this one song" that makes Mary Lynne cry.


Amanda tried singing the song to her daughter on set, and while there were no tears from Mary Lynne, this time Ellen couldn't hold back.

The generous talk show host ended the segment with a surprise for the Canadian family: a free trip to sunny Hawaii.

  • My mother in law reported that her baby son would cry if she played or sang off key. The boy turned out to have perfect pitch and an excellent memory for music. Perhaps this baby is crying because its ears hurt?
