A masseuse chose an unusual way to celebrate her 29th birthday – by dressing up as a baby and posing in a photo shoot.

Krysti Yakonick celebrated her birthday on 4 December, and shared the comic shoot in anticipation of the event.

She swaddled herself in a fleecy blanket and wore a cute artificial rose-covered headband for the images, and posed with her eyes closed next to a plaque detailing her age in months, weight and length.

Explaining the motivation behind her shoot, she said: “I love uploading silly photos of myself and after seeing dozens of new mums posting about their babies hitting certain age milestones, I wanted to join in.

"With the help of my friend, I dressed up as a new born baby and lay on the floor next to a plaque which read out my age in months along with my weight and size in inches.

"I posted the images on my personal Facebook page as well as a few groups, I like making people laugh as it's important to have comical healing when there's so much negativity in the world at times."

Her friends and family were said to be amused by the stunt.

Yakonick added: "They just think 'oh she's back at it again,' and no doubt laugh at how stupid I look.

"My recent set of images only took a couple of minutes to capture as we got all the best images straight away. 

"It's a bit of a funny hobby now and who knows what I'll be up to next."

Last month, a woman went viral for a spoof gender reveal video, which saw her farting blue baby powder.
