See This Future Big Bro's Adorable Reaction to Mom's Pregnancy Announcement
British mom Sarah Bromby captured the moment her son learned he was going to be a big brother on video—and it's absolutely charming.
I love a good pregnancy announcement video that shows the parents-to-be breaking the news to the big-sibling-to-be. But throw in a well-mannered future-big-bro with a sophisticated British accent, and you have one of the most charming versions ever.
The video comes out of the U.K. where mum Sarah Bromby posted it to Facebook on August 23. Just days later it already has more than 23 million views!
The video takes place in the car, with the camera trained on Bromby's five-year-old son's car seat while the pair head to the hospital for a doctor's appointment. Bromby captioned it: "Thought I would share the video of me breaking the news to my 5yr old that he is going to be a big brother."
The clip starts out with the boy reviewing what appear to be ultrasound photos.
"What is that?" he asks of his mama, first guessing the images could be of himself, or of his mom.
It's then that Bromby shares the news that her son is going to be a big brother.
"Is that your baby?" he asks excitedly. "Is it in your belly right now? Is it?!"
He gets more and more thrilled as the news sinks in, exclaiming "I'm going to be a new big brother!"
Working out the new logistics, he says sweetly and sincerely, "He can sleep in my bed, if you want." Mom replies, "That's so kind of you." (Awwwww!)
She tells him next that he'll have to be patient, as the baby needs quite a while longer to cook. But he can hardly wait.... so he'll have to spill the beans to at least one more confidante: "I'm gonna tell my teacher!"
Most of the action happens in the first 90 seconds, but you'll want to watch the full three minutes once you see the sweet face—and the priceless accent—of this precious future big brother.
