An adorable video showing a dad and his daughter being reunited in the sweetest way has gone viral.
A family from Surrey have shared a video showing the lovely moment when four-year-old Leah saw her dad for the first time in two months, on her birthday.
After Leah’s dad had moved away to a different country for work, she was missing him terribly, especially having not seen him for two months.
According to her mum’s caption on the video, Leah was desperately hoping her dad would be back for her fourth birthday, but as he couldn’t get home until the day after, her mum told her there was a surprise waiting for her instead.
Leah was told that her dad had sent her a special birthday present, ‘I said that Daddy will not be back until tomorrow but he has sent you a big present for you. So she came in knowing there was something waiting for her, she just had no idea what (or should I say, who!)’.
The video shows little Leah excitedly unwrapping the huge present, with some direction from mum, peeling back the layers of birthday wrapping paper and trying to get into the box.
When she finally manages to get into the present, she realises it’s her dad who is inside! She can’t help but jump around as her dad gives her a huge bear hug sweeping her off her feet – adorable!
Leah’s mum explains how they put the surprise together for her, ‘He flew back the night before her birthday and in the morning before my mum brought her home (she had spent the night at my mums so we could pull the surprise off) we cut the underneath of the box off and loosely wrapped the box.
‘When I went outside to meet my daughter, her dad got into the box and waited.’
Aww, what a lovely surprise!
