Son Grabs Mom When Their Song Starts Playing— Their Sweet Dance Will Make Your Day.

Sometimes in life, you’ve just got to dance!

When Lucy Stevens of Napoleonville, Louisiana couldn’t sleep one night, she enlisted her adult son Lance, to take her for a spin around the family kitchen. “When you can’t sleep in southern Louisiana, you dance!” Lucy exclaims early in the video.

She and Lance then proceed to do a dance number that would make the judges on Dancing With The Stars proud.


With their family cheering them on, the pair turned on the song “Dear Future Husband” by Meghan Trainor and did a routine they’ve clearly practiced for a long time. In fact, judging by the comfortable way he moves around, it looks like Lance has been dancing with his mama in the kitchen for his entire life.


The dance is simple enough, but they’re having such a wonderful time together that it makes us all wish we could have an impromptu dance party with our loved ones! The way they laugh and smile at each other truly melts your heart, and everyone who watches this clip finds themselves overcome with joy.

The video has been watched millions of times on YouTube!


At one point, Lucy quotes a song lyric and tells the camera operator, “Yes, I am a lady.” Lance can’t help but break down in giggles at his sassy mom, pretending to fall to the floor, doubled-over with laughter.


The best part, aside from the obvious love this mother and son share for one another, is the big warm bear hug they give each other at the end of the song. Talk about parenting goals!
