Aww, Riley Mesnick... don’t cry! The 9 month old daughter of Season 13 Bachelor Jason Mesnick and his Bachelor 13 runner-up wife, Molly, just met Santa Claus for the first time. And it’s safe to say she probably didn’t have the reaction her celeb parents were hoping for.
On December 24, Jason took to Twitter to share his photo of sweet Riley sitting on Santa’s lap. The jolly guy in the bright red suit is rosy-cheeked and grinning, but little Riles isn’t so happy. Her tiny eyebrows are posed in a worried look and her little eyes are filling with tears.
“Daddy help me... Santa smells like beef and cheese! @MollyMesnick,” Jason captioned the pic.
Riley, who is, notably, one of the most adorable of all reality babies — have you seen her big, super-cute eyes? — was born in March of this year. She lives with her mom, dad, and her older bro, Ty, in Seattle.
Usually, Riley’s grinning big and seems genuinely excited about the world in all of the many photos her proud parents like to share on Twitter. In fact, we were beginning to wonder if little Riles had a setting other than "cute, happy, perfect." She is a normal baby, right? Who cries or throws a tantrum occasionally?
Thankfully, Jason and Molly have provided enough evidence lately to abate our fears that Riley might be some sort of an angelic robot child. Because while that would be kind of cool... we do ultimately prefer babies to be human.
And you know what? Sometimes human babies are scared of Santa Claus. It happens.
