Many cultures have their own versions of dumplings, as since their beginnings in Ancient China they have become a fairly broad dish that can be filled with veggies, meat, or cheese, and even sweet fillings to serve as desserts. Ilana Glazer took a dumpling's limitless filling options a step further in a recent TikTok video, calling herself "a baby dumpling," as she's pregnant with her first child. It's a reach, but watching her gleefully connecting the dots and sharing her realisation is simultaneously sweet and hilarious.

In the video, Ilana shares that she got a bag of frozen dumplings from a local Taiwanese shop to make at home. "And I bit into it, and there was, like, a cute little meatball in it, and I realised . . ." she says, before changing the camera angle to show her bare belly in the mirror. "I'm a dumpling! A baby dumpling! L-O-L."

We can't imagine Ilana not taking the opportunity to at least nickname her child dumpling after this wholesome realisation that pregnant people, in a way, are — ahem, *inedible* — dumplings.
