Kim Jong-un’s baby photos surfaced today through Korean Central Television, North Korea's state broadcaster.

The youngest son of Kim Jong-il eventually became his father's successor as leader of the reclusive country.

The baby photos that surfaced today foreshadowed his future as a four-star general and eventually army supreme commander or North Korea. Kim Jong-un is estimated to have been born in 1983 or early 1984. It is not known for sure.

In North Korea, parents sometimes adorn their children in military apparel and have them compete for badges in school.
