Ten month old Landon Benton is an Instagram star with close to 80,000 followers and is affectionately now known as Stuff Curry, after the popular Golden State Warriors player Steph Curry.
The moniker came by accident.
In fact, Landon’s mom, Jessica Benton, didn’t even know of Curry and thought a commenter calling her baby Stuff Curry was being mean like some others who have, unfortunately, criticized her cute cherubic baby’s loveable rolls. Jessica told ESPN that she Googled the term and found the NBA star. And the rest is history, as they say.
The Illinois mom has since taken it upon herself to outfit her baby in Warriors jerseys and gear and reclaim and play up the name to the baby’s fans, TODAY reported.
And also since then, baby Benton’s career has taken off. He’s been featured on UK’s DailyMail and other sites.
He recently starred in a spoof of an NBA Finals after game press conference along with another baby cast as “Cry Baby LeBron” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The Cleveland Cavaliers 5-time NBA champ and MVP, LeBron James, is dad to our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, Savannah Brinson James
It’s great to see her use Stuff Curry’s new found fame to raise awareness about bullying.
