Ed Sheeran is famous for a lot of things (his music, being friends with Taylor Swift), but “looking like a baby” has never been one of them. At least until now.

A photo of 2-year-old Isla Walton from Exeter, England, is going viral after her aunt posted it online, and it’s hard to deny that the toddler bears a striking resemblance to the “Shape of You” singer:

Isla’s mom Zoe says she’s always gotten comments about her daughter’s red hair, but it wasn’t until this particular photo that she really appreciated the resemblance.

“Everyone has been saying that Isla looks like him for a long time and I never thought anything of it,” she told the Daily Mail.

Isla is becoming an Ed Sheeran fan amidst all the attention, her mom says. “Now she likes to watch him on TV… She loves his music, tries to sing along to the words and has a dance.”

This sounds like an Ellen segment waiting to happen. Your move, Ed.
