A mother of a three-year-old boy has deleted UberEats from her phone after her son ordered $50 worth of McDonald’s fries.

Ashley Keogh shared the hilarious video to Facebook last week and it has since racked up over 10,000 views.

“Nothing like getting a knock at the door with a McDonald’s delivery,” the mother wrote on Facebook.

“All of us confused but the driver insisted it was ours and showed us the order!!!”

The mother then said she opened up the bag to find multiple servings of large fries - at least eight are visible in the two bags in the video and one is seen sitting on the table.

She then pans to a mobile phone which shows the cost of the fries came to just under €30, or AUD$49.

“Harry,” Ms Keogh says in the video. “What did you do?”

She then pans to the cheeky boy, who seems quite content munching on one of the fries.

Fortunately, Ms Keogh has quite a good sense of humour and has done several interviews following the video - though she admits she has removed the app from her phone to prevent further unexpected deliveries.

Speaking to the Irish Mirror, Ms Keogh said the fries were ordered under Harry’s father’s account and when the food arrived, the three-year-old yelled “yay yummies” and ran to the table.

“I finally twigged what had happened and checked the old phone to see the payment screen I showed in the video,” Ms Keogh, from Ballyfermot, Dublin, told The Irish Mirror.

"Needless to say it gave us all a great laugh but when I uploaded it to Facebook I wasn't expecting the reaction it received.”

Despite not expecting her son to become a viral sensation, Ms Keogh said she is glad people have found the situation as funny as she did and she said she wouldn’t let her son live this down.

Harry also left a tip, to which his mother praised him for being generous.
