Tame Impala multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker shared a picture of his and wife Sophie Lawrence’s new baby yesterday via Instagram. Instagram went wild for baby Impala.

Kevin Parker and wife Sophie Lawrence announce pregnancy

In November last year, Kevin Parker’s wife Sophie Lawrence posted a picture to Instagram in which her baby bump was on full display.

This revelation confirmed that the newly married couple were expecting their first child.

She later shared that they were expecting their first baby in January 2021.

Since then, she has posted one more pregnancy picture. However, the first out of either of them to share an actual picture of their newborn child was Kevin Parker, aka Tame Impala.

Instagram reacts to Baby Impala

The reaction to Tame Impala’s Instagram post has been enormous. 

Posted only 12 hours ago and captioned, “look at this peach”, the photo has picked up over 400K likes and numerous comments.

One user commented: “Baby Parker’s first word will have reverb on it ❤️”

Another asked blankly, “Can he play guitar”. Meanwhile another, referring to the scarcity of references to the pregnancy or birth in either parent’s social media feeds, wrote, “I THINK WE SKIPPED A FEW CHAPTERS HOLY SH*T”.

By contrast, Twitter’s reaction has (thus far) been muted, with relatively few mentions of Tame Impala’s baby – although there have been a couple.
