Misty-Eyed Little Girl Has Emotional Reaction Holding Newborn Cousin For 1st Time.

There are few things more precious in life than holding a tiny new infant in your arms.

Newborns are so incredibly adorable, from the top of their sweet-smelling heads to the tips of their teensy little toes. It’s easy to find yourself overwhelmed by the purity of these tiny human beings, and the video you’re about to see is proof positive that love at first sight truly does exist.


Bree Miller of Reseda, California recently gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Marley Rae. When it came time for the tiny infant to meet some of her family members, Bree had her camera ready to capture the sweet moments, but she had no idea just how sweet those moments would end up being.


Two of Marley Rae’s new cousins were paying a visit that day to check her out. As Bree held and fed the baby, the two little girls seemed rapt with attention. They would tentatively reach out to touch her downy-soft hair, and both couldn’t wait to get that little girl in their own arms to hold her.


As soon as Bree placed a sleeping Marley Rae into her niece Tiffany’s arms, the little girl seemed overwhelmed. Tiffany’s eyes got misty with tears as she gazed into the newborn’s face, holding her close against her body. A few seconds later, those misty eyes turned into full-fledged tear drops as the little girl’s emotions kicked into overload!


Anyone who has ever felt a surge of love for a child will recognize the look in little Tiffany’s eyes as she cradles Marley Rae to her chest. She seems to be a natural caregiver with a big heart, and we can see she’s going to be the best cousin anyone could ever ask for!

Bree’s camera was rolling as soon as the adults in the room noticed how emotional Tiffany had become, and the resulting pictures and videos are simply beautiful.


“What do you love about her?” Bree asks Tiffany from off-camera. After a pause, the little girl whispers simply, “I love everything about her.”



Recognizing that this lovely moment between new family members was something special, Bree uploaded her videos and pictures to Instagram where they swiftly went viral.

“WARNING: you may tear up… this is what happens When you meet your new baby cousin for the first time and your emotions get the best of you!” Bree wrote, and she wasn’t kidding! Have some tissues handy for this one, folks.
