Unborn child has Facebook profile

Unborn baby Marriah Greene has a lot to say, at least according to her Facebook profile.

The child attends Tummy University, enjoys soccer and swimming and talks in first person. And her friends talk back to her– in baby-speak, naturally.

Of course, it’s really her mother, Ellie Greene of Whitehouse, Texas, updating the page, but the fetus already has more than 260 friends.

When Ellie and her husband, Matt, decided it was time to announce their pregnancy, they wanted a quick, inclusive method, and what’s faster than Facebook to spread exciting news?

“Within a day she had over 100 friends,” Ellie said, according to affiliate KLTV.

Friends quickly responded to updates about Marriah. They give advice, make jokes and compliment her beauty in the ultrasound photos.

“We wanted to keep the page going, so she could go back and look at it,” Ellie said, giving her daughter the opportunity to see how many people adored her before she was even born.

The parents plan to continue updating the page, with her birth story coming soon. After all, “The word in the belly is there's a lot more to see.”

    I however think it's an adoreable idea. I'm 21 weeks pregnant and I'm keeping everyone posted by my facebook but I think the fact that being able to look back that far as to when you were a fetus, is absolutely amazing. I'm going to do it.

    Wait! It's attatched to a chord of some sort. Let's see what the chord is hooked-up to and find out what it is exactly. Finally! a way to end the debate.

    Making facebook pages for unborn babies has been done a thousand times before; why on earth is this one getting so much attention? Facebook shouldn't delete the page, the parent's should.

      It's getting attention because of dumb liberals like me who hate life and hate babies.

    Our little one had a facebook page literally hours after she was born (and twitter, and gmail). As soon as I could get on the hospital wireless with my laptop and set it up we had it created for her with pictures and messages from her to our family. Each week we try to update it with what she is doing from her point of view.

    Yep. Just as I feared would be the case. The chord is attatched to a female of the human species. We've been killing humans all these years.

    We've traced the extension chord. It extends from a female of the human species. We've been killing humans after all. Huh. I'll be darned.

      You really need to learn how to spell.

      Not that your arguments mean anything. Parasites are attached to humans. Does that make a tape worm a human? Or a tick? Cancer cells are attached to a human, does that mean we shouldn't get rid of them? Simply using the "It's attached to a human" thing really isn't a good enough argument. Gotta go with more than that if you're going to pretend to be smart.

      @Mew. "Tapeworms are attached to humans......why not get rid of them". Parasites suck the life out of everything that is good because they're too idle to think for themselves – they add nothing to humanity. That ring any bells with you?Maybe only your mother could explain why you're still here?

      As for being smart [ which you ain't by a long chalk ] you obviously don't know that in Canada, America ,China and India where they have a Abortion as Government Policy – they are now panicking because research has shown that in 30+ years time, there won't be enough young people to pay taxes support seniors or the Health services. When you interfere with the balance of nature – nature bites you on the butt.
