Dad reveals newborn to family with an ‘epic’ socially distanced debut: ‘So freaking cute’

A woman celebrated the birth of her nephew in the most epic way possible. 

TikToker Margaret’s brother recently had a baby named Ethan Haneul Ingraham. When he was born, pandemic restrictions meant that the family couldn’t see Ethan in person for a while. So Margaret’s brother came up with the perfect plan to get around the rules. 


Who says Covid precautions have to ruin everything – this was epic 😭😭😭❤️ #christmas #covidchristmas #newborn #baby

“My brother put on this whole presentation so we could see my new nephew from outside, and this was the grand finale,” Margaret wrote in the caption

On the ledge of her brother’s windowsill, there were many stuffed animals and a plaque with Ethan’s name. Suddenly the curtains opened up, and “Circle of Life” from The Lion King. 

“Soundtrack definitely added to the overflow of emotion,” Margaret added.

Then, there was Ethan sleeping peacefully in a bassinet. It was the grand reveal the family had been looking forward to. When the song reached its emotional peak, lights began to shine around the newborn. It was perfect.

“Who says COVID-19 precautions have to ruin everything? This was epic,” Margaret said

Ethan’s big debut received over 7.3 million views and 1.1 million likes.

“Is this how the three wise men felt?” a user asked

“I was half expecting the stroller to start rising slowly,” another joked

“Not the light! This is so freaking cute!” someone commented
