Before the baby girl was born, she and her dad already had a shared tradition. The father would gently brush the mother’s bump from left to right, and then he would softly fist bump it.
As the mom’s bump grew bigger and bigger throughout the pregnancy, the father always let his daughter know he was there too with the special handshake. Finally, when the little one was born he softly brushed her tiny hand from left to right and fist-bumped her. It was a moment nine months in the making.
“Daddy finally got to fist bump his bestie,” the mom wrote in the caption.
The touching video received 30.5 million views and 2.9 million likes on TikTok.
“That’s the same handshake me and my dad did,” someone commented.
“My sister does the exact same thing to my belly. I started crying when watching this,” another wrote.
“The baby: So you’re the one who kept knocking [during] my sleep time,” a person joked.
