IRELAND – This six-year-old boy from Ireland finds out he is going to be a big brother and has a reaction that will likely make you tear up as well.

Jake was filmed by his dad, as his mother Teresa Dooley informed him that the sibling he has wanted for years is finally on the way.

His parents revealed the news through a series of index cards, including one reading, “I’m sorry I took so long to get here, but I am here now.”

When Jake finds out his wish is coming true, he runs towards his mother and hugs her tightly, and both of them begin to cry.

His mom presents him with a t-shirt saying, “this guy is going to be a big brother.”

Jake continues to cry, that all-consuming happy cry.

His mom posted the video online late last week and since then the story has been shared around the world, as friends and stranger alike were moved by Jake’s sincere happiness.
