  • “I tried giving my daughter the worst xmas gift ever & I didn’t expect this reaction,” Mojica wrote on Twitter upon sharing video of the touching moment.
  • The clip shows Aria opening the gift, and expressing joy upon seeing the fruit. She then asks her mom to peel it so she can eat it right away.
  • Mojica told USA Today that Aria loves food, especially bananas: “I could give her a cookie right now, and she’d go crazy. But she definitely loves bananas. There are random nights when she wakes up and is like ‘banana!'”
  • Mojica and his wife produce comedy skits on YouTube and just started featuring Aria because she’s a “big ball of good vibes.” He said it’s “amazing” to finally have Aria featured in their daily videos.
