Baby Born Encased in Amniotic Sac Becomes Viral Star: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"We all know that every baby is special, but Silas Philips pulled off a rare feat right out of the womb.

Days before he`s scheduled to leave the hospital, he`s already gone viral on social media because he was born `en caul.`

Silas was completely encased in his amniotic sac, said Los Angeles` Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in a Facebook post. That`s so rare, that even doctors delivering babies hardly see it."


The Internet has made viral stars out of countless cute cats and adorable human babies, especially celeb babies.

But now the Internet has made a viral star out of a baby so grotesque and disgusting that it looked like something a dog might vomit.

Baby Silas was born completely encased in his amniotic sac, Kim Kardashian`s big butt failed to break the Internet but perhaps this viral image will succeed.

Baby Silas is adorable, now that he has been freed from the amniotic sac! Congratulations to the mom on the birth of her gorgeous baby.
