Austin-based comedians, Ella Gale and MK Paulsen just had a baby, a burrito baby. And they’re sharing that beautiful burrito baby with the world in a hilarious set of “newborn” family portraits.
Gale told Huffington Post, “You've seen the pictures; who wouldn't want to have a burrito with MK Paulsen? Our decision to share our love for our burrito with the world happened pretty organically."
Erin Holsonback was all too happy to be the photographer behind the series. "When a handsome, 6'5" man asks you to photograph a Celine Dion-inspired newborn shoot with a Chipotle burrito instead of a baby, you always say yes," she said.
Gale and Paulsen aren’t an actual couple but they were inspired to do the photo shoot as a funny commentary about the newborn family photos that Facebook and Instagram users encounter every day from their friends.
The comedians say that their shoot has inspired others: “Many people who have seen them appear to have been inspired to do their own photo shoots with the food they've had together. Which is great!"
Get ready, America. Family portraits with "newborn food" might just be the next big thing. Hamburgers, fried chicken — what will be next?
