Little Cade is the star of the show in his mum's videos. One clip of the little boy helping his grandmother make cookies has been a particular hit – purely because Cade kept trying to sample every single ingredient that went into the cookie dough, including raw egg.
During the interview, Christy was asked whether Cade knew about his newfound fame. "Not at all, I think he enjoys being in the kitchen, we've continued doing videos," she said. "But we were shocked when it went viral, we weren't even really prepared."
And whether Cade's grandmother, affectionately known as Nana, would be making more regular appearances, Christy said: "Unfortunately no, my husband and I are in the military which puts us far away from family. My husband was deployed for Covid response and so my mum came to help out, which is when they filmed the first video."
