9-Month-Old Balck Baby Shows Innocent Beauty And Becomes An Internet Sensation


Representing the beauty of darker skin, Jeremiah – now 14 months old – went on to advertise for various other children’s clothing campaigns. Recently he got to see the fruits of his labour, when he spotted a picture of himself at a Primark store. Though it took him a while to register that he was staring at a baby-faced version of himself.

Gabrielle told Metro.co.uk how important it was to see people, especially youngsters, with dark skin represented in big campaigns, because the beauty industry so often leaves them out.

Since his Primark shoot, Jeremiah has gone on to advertise for Rochelle Humes’ skincare company, a Pampers photoshoot, a skin and hair company, as well as fashion magazines. His work isn’t just exclusive to the UK either, as a newly-opened American Primark used Jeremiah’s pictures in their Brooklyn store. So Jeremiah has now gone international. And all by the mere age of 14 months.

‘It was very overwhelming seeing him in the Primark store for the first time, we were so proud and couldn’t believe our son was now the main model in a store and not just online,’ Gabrielle told Metro.co.uk. ‘We actually first saw him in a store in Brooklyn, New York, as someone sent us a picture via his Instagram page and then a few others sent us pictures from other stores around the UK.‘We didn’t actually know it was going to be in stores as we had waited so long since the campaign went live so we thought it would just be online.

‘Jeremiah is only 14 months so I don’t think he was aware of the excitement we were all feeling, he did notice himself and started smiling and pointing which was cute. ‘Our family was very very happy! They have been telling all their friends as they are proud that they have a famous person in their family.’ Though Gabrielle, a talent manager, said she is grateful to God for being given the opportunity to let Jeremiah model for a major high street clothing line, she says she still has bigger dreams.

‘I think it would be good to work with more high-end products like Armani, or Hugo Boss,’ she said. ‘They have no representation of dark-skinned babies. It would also be good to work with baby companies like Mothercare, Aptamil or Tommee Tippee as they mainly use white babies.’ We’re sure we’ll be seeing Jeremiah in lots of other big things in the future.
