Daughter is surprised by arrival of baby brother and father on the same day

There is nothing like welcoming a new life into the family. And when you have the opportunity to be there when the baby is still taking his first breaths in an overwhelming and intimidating world, it can be incredibly emotional. On the other hand, when little children meet their younger siblings for the first time, it doesn't always go so well.

Being the youngest child in my family, I never got to experience the birth of a baby sister or brother, though I always wanted to. Yet sometimes you do hear about children getting upset over a new addition to their family, if they believe that they will get less attention or will somehow be "replaced" by a new, cute child, changing the regular dynamic that has been working so well until this point.

When it comes down to it, however, the majority of kids are going to react pretty well to a baby arriving, since, well, they are pretty damn adorable. Personally, I have no clue what to do with young children and will stay as far away from them as possible, but seeing a newborn would still likely melt my heart in an instant.

And that's exactly what happened to Kaydence, when she met the newest addition to her family.

In this meeting, which was caught on video by the mother, Kaydence enters the hospital room after her mother had gone through labour. All of this was a surprise to the little girl, since her baby brother was born a week earlier than they anticipated. Her mother calls her into the room and tries to get her to look at the baby, but she is so overwhelmed with emotion she can barely look at him, tears streaming down her face.

Eventually, the mother convinces her to touch the baby's soft cheeks, after which you can just about make out her sob "he is so precious". If your heart isn't breaking at this point, I don't know what to tell you, because I was struggling to keep it together.

After this, things aren't quite over yet, as this little girl had one more surprise for the day. How much can this little girl take before her heart explodes?


Just at the moment she is starting to regulate her breathing and calm her sobbing, her mother tells her: "there's somebody else you should meet". She looks confused for a moment before looking to her left, and her eyes grow wide. "Daddy!" she shouts, and your tears are likely starting all over again.

Kaydence's father has actually been in Afghanistan, and was due to be there for another four months, so she had no clue she would be reunited with him so soon. Naturally, she jumps into his arms, and he embraces and comforts her through her tears. What a heartwarming reunion this was for the whole family!
