Smile and the world smiles with you! At 34 weeks, little Freya Vinje was rushed into the world by emergency C-section. And despite spending her first days in a neonatal intensive care unit, the premmie took ‘life on the outside’ in her stride.

So much so, that at just five-days-old, Freya flashed a smile that has sent the Internet into meltdown. That newborn is beaming!

According to mum Lauren, her 1.75kg bundle of joy was “happy to be alive”, and Freya’s cheery outlook is still with her two years on.

Lauren says, “honestly, she is the best thing that has happened to us … She’s so fun. She’s so happy. That picture at five-days-old, you can see her little personality and you look at her now, and she hasn’t changed.”

Freya’s family hoped the photo would comfort other parents of premmies. And you know what? A smile that big has lit up the world.
