While pregnant, Megan Riddle craved food from Whataburger. There was one small problem, however. At the time, Megan and her husband Tyler lived 450 miles away from the closest Whataburger.

Still, the determined couple made the trek from Iowa to Oklahoma to satisfy the pregnancy craving, according to The Des Moines Register.

When their baby Basil was born, the Riddles had moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where Whataburger locations are plentiful. That inspired them to create a most unusual baby photo.

Photographer Allie Rae Zuniga captured the quirky image that quickly went viral. Instead of a burger, the baby is wrapped up like a taquito. The hashtag #whatababy accompanied the image.
