I thought when être was followed by a noun or pronoun the subject would be c’est, like c’est mon fils or c’est la mienne. Isn’t celui also a pronoun? Is it because il is also the subject of the verb manger?
Bonjour Heather !
Indeed, the general rule is to use "c'est", and not "il est" here.This example has now been updated accordingly :)
Merci et bonne journée !
