Three-month-old baby Joey Powling has captured the collective heart of the Internet, and has been dubbed ‘Ridiculously Good-looking Surgery Baby’. A few days after undergoing major heart surgery due to being diagnosed with a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot, the family snapped a picture of the little guy, all smiles, and then uploaded it to Reddit. From there, an Internet star was born.


Joey was born with Tetralogy of Fallot, a congenital heart defect that left a small hole in his heart. In order to survive, Joey had to undergo seven hours of heart surgery at Boston’s Children’s Hospital. No doubt seven agonizing hours for his worried family, as Joey’s dad, Joe, Sr., told ABC News, “It felt like forever. You have no control over the situation. There’s really nothing you can do.”

But babies are resilient, and little Joey was all smiles a mere few days later as his family took pictures of the smiling boy, showing off his tiny little surgical battle wounds.
