We’ve long since realized that Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson (Hanna) was possibly the cutest child ever in existence, but that hasn’t stopped the internet from revealing more evidence to support the theory. Our most recent discovery? Three videos of toddler Ash doing what she does best: being adorable.

It seems Ashley has always been one for proper manners. In the first vid recently posted by Ash’s mom, Shannon Benson, three-year-old Ashley is determined to eat her birthday cake with her fork even if that means putting the fork tines in her hand and bringing the whole thing to her mouth. It’s kind of great, and an excellent example of kid logic.


The second video, also from Ash’s third birthday (apparently taking place at Chuck E. Cheese’s, which is very ‘90s), shows little Ashley singing along with her happy birthday song. Her tempo’s a little off, but we’re pretty impressed with her three-year-old self. She was obviously born to be a performer. And we dare you not to “aww!” when Ash’s big sister, Shaylene, comes over to give Ashley a big hug after the song is over. Sisterly love!


Finally and perhaps most awesomely, we have a video of Ashley reacting to the somewhat terrifying Chuck E. Cheese, aka someone dressed up as the anthropomorphic mouse. In the vid, Chuck comes over to say hello to the birthday girl, who exhibits some excellent “WTF” faces when the large-nosed mouse touches her head. “He’s scratching me,” she tells her mother. We totally understand your alarm, baby Ash.


What do you think? Was Ashley the cutest kid ever? Sound off in the comments below!
