It's the Circle of Life.

Justin Timberlake has proved once again that he’s one of the most down-to-earth celebs around. Arriving at a celebrity golf tournament in Nevada, JT was asked by a member of the public if he would hold the man’s baby. But the ‘Like I Love You’ singer went one further than that…

Holding the baby aloft, Timberlake, 36, hilariously gave us his best impression of Rafiki the baboon from Disney’s 1994 film The Lion King. The recreation of the iconic moment was made even more perfect by the singer’s friend, professional basketball player Steph Curry, doing a note perfect “Aaaaaaaa sebenya!”


Honestly, we’ve got goosebumps here.

The father in the video, Michael Hood, was clearly delighted that the good-natured singer made the effort and was bringin’ baby back with the crowd-pleasing move.  

“Justin this is epic, dude,” he beamed while introducing his son:“Logan James right there. ” Justin replied: “Congratulations.”

With the live action remake of The Lion King on the cards, starring Donald Glover and Seth Rogen, we definitely think Justin Timberlake now needs to be involved.
