Gio Gonzalez and girlfriend Lea Moures welcomed their baby boy Enzo into the world on 17 Mar 2016. Since then, the little one has apparently developed a drive to become the next Santa.
Gio posted little Enzo posing on Santa’s lap on Thursday evening. The picture is adorable, and Enzo is visibly excited. He even has his tiny little baby thumb up in the air and is sporting a convincing “Can you believe it’s him?” face. He’s a far cry from the kids who can’t keep it together long enough for a worthwhile picture on the Big Man’s lap. Enzo’s Santa hat even rivals that of the real Mr. Claus. A real “Who Wore it Better” situation.
The hat is cute, but it throws a curve a la Enzo’s dad via 2012. Most of us would be throwing a kid-meeting-Santa worthy temper tantrum if we were caught wearing the same hat as someone else. What is the real purpose for Enzo’s calm demeanor? The only explanation is that he’s positioning himself to become Santa, and his visit was an elaborate ruse orchestrated to take notes on Mr. Claus’ operation. While the photographers were staging the picture, did Enzo begin to plan his Santa mutiny?
How Santa succession works is unclear despite the excessive work of Tim Allen in “The Santa Clause” series. Enzo may or may not become the next Santa, but he sure does rock the hat.Tags: Christmas, Gio Gonzalez, Nationals, Nats, Santa, Washington Nationals
