It’s the television show many of us grew up with, and now we finally get a look at what the sun baby from the Teletubbies looks like all grown up.

Jessica Smith was the adorable smiling baby who laughed along with Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po for all those years ago, but now she’s handing over her role to 18-month-old Berry from London.

A photo circulating of the pair on Twitter has people feeling old and many mistaking Berry for Jessica’s daughter.

However, Teletubbies took to their official Twitter page to clarify that the original sun baby has not had her own baby.

“After a photo of the original sun baby holding a baby made the rounds, Teletubbies clarified that the image was of the ‘original Sun Baby, Jess Smith, with our new Sun Baby, Berry’,” they wrote.

The image hasn’t stopped people from being shocked though, with many saying it’s making them feel very old.

“This has made me feel 800 years old,” one person said.

Jessica told Digital Spy she’s ‘proud’ of her involvement in the Teletubbies and is happy to pass over the sun baby baton to another child.

"Having met baby Berry and seeing how adorable she is I can't think of anyone better to take over the role,” she said.
