The 3-year-old internet star that loves to argue over cupcakes met Ellen on Tuesday – and this time, there was no need to argue to get what we wanted.

Video of the 3-year-old arguing with his mother Linda over cupcakes has been viewed nearly 5 million times on YouTube.

Linda and 3-year-old Matthew Beltran, better known as Mateo, appeared on Ellen on Tuesday. During the interview, Linda explained her argumentative son and Mateo received a mountain of cupcakes from Ellen.

Linda said Mateo likes to debate with her. She also explained why he referred to her as Linda in the video.

“When he’s serious and he really wants to get his point across, then we become Linda and Kenneth,” Linda said.

Kenneth is Mateo’s father.

Ellen also surprised Linda and Mateo with a $10,000 check from Shutterfly.
