Viral kids who photobombed their dad on live BBC News are all grown up

Remember those kids who photobombed their dad on BBC News as it was being televised live? They're all grown up now.

The said father is Robert E. Kelly, a political science professor at Pusan National University. He's better known simply as "BBC Dad" after his big TV moment then became a viral video.

"Some BBC Dad content since the 6th anniversary of the original video was last Friday (March 10)...Thanks again to all of you who follow me because of the video. My family and I are flattered by your kindness," the proud dad wrote.

Along with his post are some "nice family pictures" that they were able to get since Marion had a singing performance over the past weekend.

Marion was actually the one who first walked into the room where her dad was shooting his interview with BBC News.

Her little brother, James, then followed shortly in a baby walker.

As seen in their then-trending video, BBC Dad's wife, Jung-a Kim, then came to the rescue. She got their children out of the room almost a minute after the chaos ensued, though they could still be heard after the door was closed.

"Happy 6th anniversary to the greatest moment in the history of the internet," former BBC editor Declan Cashin recently posted in honor of the viral family moment.
