"I can't believe that I met the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau".

When a Syrian couple in Canada named their new born baby after country's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, they perhaps never thought that one day their son will be able to meet his famous namesake. In fact, it appears he may have slept right through it.

As of January this year, more than 40,000 Syrian refugees have been resettled in Canada since Mr Trudeau took office in November 2015, the BBC reported.

The child's mother, Afraa Hajj Hammoud, said her husband Mohammed Belal thought of the name - and she liked the idea.

The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has had a very special meeting with the baby of a refugee couple named in his honour.

Doso, a Syrian father in Red Deer, named his own son Justin. "He is a really nice man", Hammoud told BBC News of the Canadian prime minister. His "playlist", which features, you guessed it, songs in both official languages, featuring a plethora of artists among us.

The family now resides in the Canadian city of Calgary.

Muhammad and Afraa Bilal arrived in Canada in February previous year with their two young children after escaping war-torn Syria, reported NDTV.

The Syrian family are not the only ones to name their baby after the Canadian prime minister.

Justin Trudeau and Justin-Trudeau Adam Bilal had an instant connection.
