Mom ‘ugly cries’ when she accidentally records baby’s first word: ‘What an amazing moment to catch on camera!’

A mother was shocked when she unexpectedly captured her baby’s first word on camera — and the footage is giving TikTok baby fever!

When mom and TikToker Kourtney Green (@mrsgreen0919) sat down to record her 10-month-old Lyla standing up on her own, she never expected to capture this huge milestone!

In fact, she was just jokingly trying to get Lyla to say “mama,” as Kourtney and her husband had an ongoing bet that it would be their baby’s first word.

So when Kourtney again asked her baby girl, “Can you say ‘Mama?'” she never expected Lyla’s response — nor did she expect to capture it on camera!

But with a big, toothless grin, Lyla clearly declared, “Mama!”

Kourtney gasped, then exclaimed, “You said Mama!”

The shocked mom went on to explain in her on-screen text, “[And] then I ugly cried cause I caught her 1st word on camera [and] it was Mama!”

‘Oh my GOSH, my heart…’

With over 2 million views and counting, Kourtney’s video was flooded with emotional comments.

“Ugh I felt your joy in this. That first time they say your name is the best,” one user wrote.

“I almost started crying too. The excitement when your kid says their first word is SO REAL,” commented another user.

“Okay this legit made me cry. What an amazing moment to catch on camera!” another user wrote.

“Oh! That was so precious! Thanks for letting us enjoy this milestone!” commented another user.

“Oh my GOSH, my heart…” gushed another user.

Some TikTokers were just as tickled by Kourtney’s baby as they were by her shocking footage.

“Oh no, I just got the fever… Baby fever,” wrote one user.

“I don’t mean to overreact… But this is the cutest baby I’ve ever seen in my life,” another user joked.

While social media might have some drawbacks, it’s special moments like this that make the Internet worthwhile!
