This Boy's Reaction to His Mom's Baby News Will Make You Cry All the Happy Tears
No soon-to-be big brother has ever been this happy to see sonogram photos.
Phew! Get ready to cry like a baby. Over a baby. After you smile like a fool.
A video of a 6-year-old boy named Jaden finding out his mom is pregnant is going to literally send you into emotional overload. Because no soon-to-be big brother has ever been this happy to see sonogram photos. Ever.
The YouTube video of the big reveal starts out with Jaden opening a gift bag, and pulling out a tissue paper-wrapped package containing tiny baby shoes, a diaper, and teeny socks. All the while, this adorable little boy is giggling with delight. He is just too cute!
"Why would you have those?" his mom asks.
"You're having a baby?" Jaden guesses.
His suspicions are confirmed when he pulls a stack of sonogram photos out of the gift bag. Jaden's infectious giggles morph into sobs, he is so overcome with happiness.
According to Storyful, Jaden was devastated when his mother suffered a miscarriage last year. His parents say that this was something he always wanted—so much so that, at Christmas, he would even ask Santa to please send him a brother or sister.

As for me, well, I'm still crying. And smiling. How'd you do that to me, Jaden?
