Modify an Array Stored in an Object Number Output

Tell us what’s happening:
I don’t know why I get an output of 4, the number of friends (it changes when you add more friends, that’s why I guess it is their count).
I can see my code is a bit different than the solution and I would understand it not working at all, but I don’t understand how I get a number output.

Your code so far

let user = {
name: 'Kenneth',
age: 28,
data: {
  username: 'kennethCodesAllDay',
  joinDate: 'March 26, 2016',
  organization: 'freeCodeCamp',
  friends: [
  location: {
    city: 'San Francisco',
    state: 'CA',
    country: 'USA'

function addFriend(userObj, friend) {
// Only change code below this line
let newArr =;
return newArr;
// Only change code above this line

console.log(addFriend(user, 'Pete'));
