An adorable little girl interrupted her newsreader mum’s broadcast to let her know she’d received a message on her phone. Sounds like a pretty helpful kid to me
The cute moment was caught on camera during a broadcast on local channel TagilTV in the city of Nizhny Tagil, Russia.
In the clip, which was filmed back in 2012, news anchor Anna Kizilova can be seen reading out the report before her little girl strolls into shot holding out a phone to her mum.
Kizilova then tries to move her daughter Elizaveta out of shot, while the little girl pipes up to say: “But mum, you have a message.”
Speaking to Central European News (CEN), Kizilova explained that she had had to pick up her daughter from nursery before returning to work.
She said: “I wasn’t married at the time and my mum lived on the other side of town so there was no one I could leave her with when I had to go to work.”
Fortunately for Kizilova, her employers found the whole thing pretty funny and she wasn’t punished for the cute intrusion.
Kizilova said: “I was worried about losing my news role, but the producer asked the team about the public reaction and was told that it had been positive.”
Although it was filmed a few years back, the clip has resurfaced on social media recently and has since gone viral, which was a bit of a shock for the newsreader.
“I just posted the old video, filmed in 2012, not realising it would be so popular,” she added.
“It quickly spread online and a local journalist was told about it and called me to ask for the permission to use it.”
Kizilova said she came across the old clip when her bosses asked her for her recommendations for her favourite moments over the past decade.
Meanwhile, little Elizaveta is now 12 years old and dreams of being an actor when she leaves school – well, this clip is definitely one for the show reel, mate.
The cute interruption is reminiscent of 2017’s viral news clip showing Professor Robert Kelly having his very serious interview with the BBC broken up by his children bouncing into the room.
