Kids don’t always react the way you expect them to when you drop the news that they are about to gain a younger sibling. And in the case of the young boy in the video below, his surprising reaction will send you running for the tissues.

The adorable video might be long, but it’s well-worth the wait to get to the end. 10-year-old Ryan was an only child up until the day his parents shocked him with the news that he was about to become a big brother. That wasn’t the only surprise they had for him, however. After presenting him with a t-shirt with the words “only child” crossed out and “big brother” written in, they gave him the most stunning news of all, he was going to have twin baby sisters. His shock which melts into tears of joy pretty much speaks for itself.

It has now been almost two years since that video was shot and as Ryan’s parents reported on YouTube with a brand new video he is an amazing big brother, posting that he’s, “Always patient and willing to do anything to make his sisters happy.”
