(RNN) - In a charming new time-lapse music video, musician Tom Fletcher put the progression of his wife's pregnancy to music via his brand-new song, Something New.
In what has to be one of the most creative baby videos on YouTube, Fletcher took snapshots of his wife from the very beginning of her pregnancy, to full term, to after birth, and combined the images with what would otherwise be a simple, acoustic music video.
The song starts out with the lyrics "It's just another sunrise on another day. It's just another rainbow, well they're all the same. Let me guess, the sunset followed by the moon. I think I'm ready for something new."
As Fletcher sings about being ready for a change, viewers watch his wife's stomach expand on a day-to-day basis as their healthy baby boy grows to full term. By the end of the video, Buzz Michelangelo Fletcher makes his grand entrance in his mother's arms and the happy family becomes whole.
The video, titled From Bump to Buzz, has received quite a bit of "buzz" in just a few days and has officially gone viral with more than 4 million views and counting.
However, Tom Fletcher isn't just a random new daddy who can sing, he's actually a member of British rock band McFly.
McFly is best known for being the youngest band ever to have an album debut at No. 1 on the UK Album Chart - a recognition previously assigned to the Beatles - with their 2004 album Room On the 3rd Floor.
And even though Fletcher has his hands full with baby Buzz, it isn't stopping McFly from going on tour with the band Busted under the mashup name McBusted.
