— -- A California baby’s hilarious reaction to tasting bacon for the first time was captured on camera and is now going viral.

Easton Beach, 19 months old, was dressed in Santa Claus pajamas and sitting in a high chair at his grandparents’ home on Christmas morning when he had his first taste of bacon.

“We usually stick with the same fruit and waffles for breakfast,” Easton’s mom, Melissa Beach, told ABC News. “They made bacon so my husband handed him a piece just to see what he’d do with it.”

Easton was not shy about expressing his delight, closing his eyes at some points as he ate the bacon and yelling "bacon" louder and louder. His family can be heard laughing hysterically in the background.

“It was just hilarious,” Beach said. “We definitely had to stop him from eating and he was not happy about it.”

Beach, of Walnut, Calif., said her son spent about 10 minutes eating the bacon but she only grabbed her phone in the last minute or so to record the funny moment.

Beach posted the video on Facebook last Friday, where it has been viewed more than four million times. Her husband, Tyler, also posted it on YouTube, where it has been viewed more than 11,000 times.
