Fans are losing it over this behind-the-scenes clip of shirtless Harry Styles cuddling a baby

Harry Styles has continued in his role as just a fabulous human being, by causing many “burst ovaries” in his BTS behaviour on his As It Was music video, where he cuddles up to a baby shirtless.

Is there anything more wholesome and beautiful than that?  We think not.

Fans have gone absolutely wild at the Styles-baby combo, with one even tweeting: “for the sake of society we need to stop giving harry styles babies. my ovaries cannot handle it”. Same.

At one point in the video, he completely obliterated our hearts by holding the baby up in the iconic Lion King pose (“Simba style”) above his head. It’s just too much for us, really.

He seems to be having a rockin’ good time throughout the entire video, mind you. He can be seen dancing on the revolving platform, fist bumping and joking around with the crew and smiling knowingly when the baby starts crying in his arms. 

In an interview with Billboard, the video’s choreographer Yoann Bourgeois said that a lot of moments in the final cut consisted of Harry just having fun and honestly, could he be more pure?

“Harry was having a lot of fun, so we kept in the music video a lot of the moments of playfulness from that,” Bouregois said.

With the entire Internet lusting and cooing over him in equal measure, it’s important to acknowledge that Styles has spoken up about his own problems with sex and people pleasing. In a recent interview with Better Homes & Gardens, he talked about what it was like to navigate his sex life at the height of his fame.

“Working out who I could trust was stressful, but I think I got to a place where I was like, why do I feel ashamed? I’m a 26-year-old man who’s single; it’s like, yes, I have sex,” he said.
