These TikTok parents shared the emotional moment they told their son he was going to be a big brother, and it will have you tearing up!
This TikToker (@ria32184) is a parent of a young son who recently found out she was pregnant with a second child. She shared a video of the moment she and her husband told their son he was going to be a big brother, and it’s so emotional!
The video begins with the TikTok mom and her husband inviting their son, Sammy, into the kitchen to open a gift. Sammy sits between his parents at the kitchen table and excitedly opens the package, to reveal a custom-made t-shirt.
As Sammy slowly reads the text on the shirt, a caption on screen explains, “Sammy has been asking for a sibling ever since he found out what that meant.”
After sounding out the words on the shirt, Sammy is confused. “Leveled up to big bro, est. 2021. What does that mean?”
Immediately, Sammy is overjoyed. “We’re having a brother? We’re having a baby brother?” he asks, unable to contain his excitement.
As Sammy’s mom explains that she is pregnant and that Sammy is going to have a brother or sister soon, Sammy begins to cry tears of joy. “Oh my god, thank you so much,” he says. “I’m so happy, I started crying!”
Sammy throws himself into his mom’s arms, giving her a giant hug, as he repeats, over and over, how happy he is. “I can’t even speak,” he says. “I can’t believe it.”
In captions, Sammy’s mom explains that Sammy has wanted a sibling for a long time. “He wished on birthday candles and asked Santa for a sibling,” she explains. “But due to health issues it just wasn’t happening.”
Finally, after gastric bypass surgery, Sammy’s mom was able to get pregnant, bringing joy to her whole family, and especially Sammy.
Viewers couldn’t get enough of the adorable video and predicted that Sammy would make a great big brother.
“Okay, so we’re collectively crying, right?!” one viewer wrote.
“Tell me your kid is going to be the world’s best big brother without telling me your kid is going to be the world’s best big brother,” another TikToker commented.
Another viewer joked, “Keep this so in 5 years when they are about to kill each other, you can remind him it was his idea.”
Sammy and his future sibling might not always get along, but all signs point to Sammy being a great big brother!
