Meeting a grandchild for the first time will always be a special moment.
But one son made sure that for his mom it would be truly unforgettable – by tricking her into thinking he was handing over flowers instead.
In a video shared on Twitter, the son can be seen walking up to his mom's house with his little baby in his arms.
His mom – who is blind – opens the gate for him. Her son then reaches out and pretends that he is handing her a bouquet of flowers, when in fact he is holding out the grandchild she has never met before.
The clueless grandma puts her hands out and takes a hold of her little grandchild. Then the realization dawns on her face and she breaks down in tears.
Overcome with emotion, the grandma takes the baby in her arms and hugs him tightly to her chest, all the while weeping tears of joy.
The only thing that makes the special moment even more unforgettable is that it took place on the grandma’s birthday – meaning her son gave her a birthday surprise like no other.
A clip of the sweet moment was shared to Twitter by Good News Movement, along with a caption explaining just how special it is.
“BIRTHDAY SURPRISE!” the caption reads, adding; “Grandmother meets her baby grandson for the first time!”
The tweet also includes a quote from another of the grandma's sons, who says: "My mother is blind and my brother told her he was bringing over some flowers for her birthday.”
Many viewers were so overcome by the adorable moment that they took to the comments section to express their emotion.
“This made me cry, so very sweet,” one person tweeted.
“This made me teary eyed,” another wrote, adding: “congrats to the family”
Meanwhile, others thanked the original poster for sharing the special moment on social media.
“Thank you for sharing this special moment. Heart warming and life affirming [sic],” one person commented.
“This is such a beautiful moment for her. So heartwarming!!!” added another.
