Now, just like the mom who accidentally captured her 15-year-old son taking care of his little sister at 1 a.m., Caitlin’s inadvertent footage is touching hearts all around the world.
“My husband and I were so close to a divorce and I thought there was no hope… Until I saw this video I had taken of us,” Caitlin explains in the video.
In the footage, we see Caitlin and her husband — presumably soon-to-be ex-husband at the time of the clip — celebrating their little boy’s birthday.
As the three gather around the cake, candles all alight, Caitlin’s husband steals a glance at his wife.
“I could see the love for me all over his face,” Caitlin explains in the video’s caption. “I captured the exact moment I knew we could save our marriage.”
Thanks to that one small moment captured on her phone, Caitlin realized there was still hope for their marriage.
Today, after working through therapy together, the two are still happily married, with two beautiful children.
‘Wow, no words needed…’
Thousands of TikTokers shared their reactions to the touching footage in the comments.
“He looks at you like a little boy in love,” one user wrote.
“This is precious. Good for you guys for never giving up!” said another user.
“Currently at a stage where we either work it out or walk away. Life is hard, but you gave me hope. Thank you,” another user commented.
“Wow, no words needed! Every woman deserves to be looked at like that. Congrats!” wrote one user.
“You can see the love in his eyes. He’s proud you’re the mother of his child,” commented another user.
