No One Is More Excited to Be a Big Brother Than This Little Boy

This soon-to-be big brother's reaction to his mom's baby news will make your day! But warning: Tears ahead.

A mom surprising her 6-year-old son with the news she is pregnant yields perhaps the sweetest reaction ever captured on a reveal video.

At first, we see Irish mom Teresa Dooley give son Jake a series of cards to read. The first one explains how the family has been wishing and praying for something for a long time.

"I'm sorry I took so long to get here," reads the second card.

"But I'm here now. Look at your T-shirt," reads the next.

At first, Jake is confused and looks down at what he's wearing. Then Dooley hands him a neon green shirt that says, "I am going to be a big brother."

Jake's reaction is beyond sweet. His mouth drops open. But in a moment, the soon-to-be big brother dissolves into tears and falls into his mother's arms. If you're not crying right along with him—wait, no, that's not possible.

The two embrace for several seconds before Jake proudly puts on his T-shirt. I wonder if he'll take it off for the rest of the time his mom is pregnant!

It is so incredibly sweet that Jake is this thrilled to be welcoming a sibling. My three girls beg me to have another baby all the time, and if I actually go through with it, I can only hope their reactions will be as sweet at this new big brother's!
