Heart-warming video – Irish child realises he is going to be a big brother

A heart-warming video that shows the moment an Irish boy realised that he is going to be an older brother has gone viral.

The video was posted on Facebook by Teresa Dooley who was filmed sharing the special moment with her six-year-old son Jake.

Teresa, of Co Kildare, sat Jake down in front of her and gave him a series of cards to read out for the camera.

Each card revealed a little more of the truth until it dawned on Jake that his mother was pregnant.

The final card instructed Jake to look at his T-shirt in order to find out what was going on. When he looked down he couldn’t see anything unusual about what he was wearing.

However, when he looked back up at Teresa he saw that she was holding up a new T-shirt for him and a big smile spread across his face as he realised what his mother was telling him.

He shouted: “I am going to be a big brother!” and runs to give Teresa a big hug.

His mother asks if he is happy and he nods his head and cries tears of joy. She then gives his the T-Shirt he was supposed to look at a minute ago.

It read: “This guy is going to be a big brother.”

Take a look at the video below.

Dreams really can come true ❤️❤️❤️
