Anyone who's on social media knows Scarlet Snow Belo, the smart and adorable young daughter of Drs. Hayden Kho and Vicki Belo of the Belo Medical Group. Scarlet, who just turned 3, has more Instagram followers than her parents' combined at 2,071,847 as of this writing.
Why do people love her? Besides her amazing abilities at a young age (she can speak, sing, and count in several languages), Scarlet also has a charming way about her, which is why many of her fans refer to her as their 'happy pill.'
When Scarlet first appeared on social networks, everyone couldn't contain their excitement and curiosity, and it was so intense that her parents considered taking her off social media.
Last week, at an event where Scarlet was introduced as the newest endorser of the Red Ribbon Rainbow Dedication Cakes, dad Hayden opened up about what changed their minds and what they tell Scarlet about her growing fame.
"I explained to her before that this is Instagram, and whenever we post a video of you, people like it, people watch it. There’s so many people who care for you, so many people who love you."
But, he points out, "She has zero idea of how popular she is or what’s happening."
Mom Vicki also talked about how they are trying to give Scarlet a normal life as much as possible: "We hardly go out in Manila. What we do, [Scarlet Snow] goes to friends’ houses where she plays." She also said that Scarlet goes to a school where most of students are foreigners, "It’s mostly Koreans, Japanese, Russians. So hindi nila kilala kung sino si Scarlet, so they treat her like anybody."

They also savor the times they spend in other countries where they can enjoy anonymity. "We go abroad a lot. In Japan, hardly anybody knew who she was, so she was able to run around and be a normal child," Vicki added.
Last Saturday, March 3, was Scarlet Snow's actual birth date. The adventurous child wanted a dinosaurs-themed celebration, so she and her family and friends trooped to the Mind Museum in Taguig for a fun-filled afternoon! Take a look at these snaps (and suppliers) from her party:
Mom and Scarlet went twinning for the occasion, while dad Hayden's face paint was spot on with the theme. Twinning dresses: Dolce & Gabbana
