Kayden now has prosthetic legs which he is learning to use.

Kayden Elijah Kinckle is a two year-old who was born with a rare birth defect called Omphalocele. The defect meant Kayden was born with his organs outside of his body. The two year-old was also amputated in January this year after a deformity caused by his legs being tangled with his umbilical cord left them pinned under his mother’s pelvic bone.

His mother shared a video of her son walking in them for the first time and the video has become a viral sensation.

Watch him take his first steps below:
