Some kids have the sweetest reactions when discovering they’re going to be a big brother or sister. They laugh, cry, or even a bit of both.
Parents capture the memories on camera and share them with the world. Social media hosts plenty of junk, but cute kids crying tears of joy are definitely worth scrolling for.
One 6-year-old boy from Kentucky had the sweetest reaction ever when his mom told him some super big news.
“Mom is gonna have another kid,” his sister says at the start of the Facebook video. The little boy’s reaction is immediate.
His squeal of joy caught me off guard. I didn’t expect him to be so excited so quickly! He didn’t even have to wait for the news to sink in.
“Are you excited?” his mom asks. You can hear her delight from behind the camera. When she asks if he wants a baby brother or sister, his answer is adorable.
He simply nods his head yes. Seems it doesn’t matter if the baby is a boy or a girl — this little guy is ready to be a big bro.
His mom and sister both tell him to breathe when his excitement seems to be frozen into his expression. This kid is too much!
But the best part of the video by far comes after his squeals and smiles. When the boy begins to break down into tears, my heart melted.
Watch as his sweet and tender heart is overcome with emotion as the news finally sinks in. Warning — this video may cause the waterworks to break loose.
Even though he shakes his head no when his mom asks if he’s going to cry, he can’t hide how he truly feels about the news.
“I’m freaking out,” he says. And then, when the dam finally releases all the love he’s been holding in, he says, “They’re tears of joy.”
Aww! What a sweetie pie! He’s clearly going to be the best big brother ever. I don’t doubt he’ll love that baby with as much tenderness and heart as he showed in this video.
Congratulations, buddy! We wish you, your family, and that new baby on the way all the happiness and love life can bring.
