In May, the Internet freaked out over Steph Curry’s adorable baby doppelgänger Landon Lee Benton. Now meet Eric Stonestreet’s pint-size likeness, Charlie Harding!

For Halloween, the 10-month-old from American Fork, Utah, dressed up as the Modern Family actor’s sassy character Cam — complete with his trademark floral button-down shirt and contrast sleeves. And Charlie’s parents got in on the fun too. Mom McKell went as Cam’s tiara-wearing daughter, Lily, while Dad Dan portrayed Cam’s lovably uptight husband, Mitch (played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson).
“It took some searching to find Charlie’s shirt,” McKell, 29, tells Us Weekly. “I was googling lots of weird things, like ‘Cam Tucker baby shirt,’ ‘Fancy floral baby shirt.’” Eventually McKell stumbled upon a paisley button-up from Elie Balleh, and Charlie’s Cam costume was complete.
Okay. This is GREAT. https://t.co/dzZZnEI0BL

McKell’s next step: Creating a Twitter account so she could tweet the Halloween photos to Stonestreet. “Our baby is your doppleganger!” she wrote on Sunday, October 30, alongside side-by-side shots of Charlie and the Emmy winner, 45. Stonestreet agreed, and retweeted the images to his followers later that day with the caption, ‘Okay. This is GREAT.’” Then Stonestreet messaged McKell asking for their home address!
“He said he wanted to send Charlie something,” McKell tells Us. “He thought the photos were hilarious.” And so did Stonestreet’s more than 800,000 Twitter followers. “Omg they had your baby!” wrote one person, while another raved “that is hilarious and adorable!”
Meanwhile, Charlie is no stranger to adoring fans. “Charlie was born with a ton of hair and people stop us all the time to comment on it,” McKell tells Us. “He has already had two haircuts!”
