This is the heart-warming moment a two-year-old girl was caught on camera crying tears of joy – after seeing the scan video of her baby sister for the first time.
Myla I‘Anson can be seen kissing the TV screen and saying “I love my baby sister” and “I miss her” after she was shown footage from her parents’ 16-week 3D scan.
The adorable video, which was posted on Facebook on Wednesday (25/5) by mum Carly Tansley, has since gone viral after being watched more than 14,000 times.
Yesterday (Fri) Carly, 27, of Stapleford, Notts., said: “She has always been adamant we were having a baby girl as she’s always wanted a sister.
“She’s a proper girly girl and she loves all of her princesses and everything pink.
“I will definitely show her the video when they’re fighting and pulling each other’s hair.”
Carly went to the scan on Tuesday (24/5) with her partner Chris I‘Anson, 27, and two of her best friends.
She was filming the video to show it to her family when Myla started hugging the screen and crying.
The cute tot can be heard sobbing as Carly asks “Are you OK Myla?” before adding “Oh my darling. its OK. Oh baby. You’re going to see her soon…you little cutie pie.”
Wiping tears from her eyes Myla adds: “But I love her so much.”
Carly, a CCTV advisor, added: “I really wasn’t expecting it. It made me well-up, but I was laughing too because it really affected her.
“It was heart-warming. She is quite an emotional child.
“I lost my mum when I was pregnant with Myla so she never met her grandma, but when she sees pictures and videos of her she gets really upset.”
The couple’s second baby is due on November 4 – and Carly said her eldest daughter is “very excited” to meet her sister.
She added: “She’s already decided she’s going to give up her dummies to give them to her. She’s keeping and saving lots of things and toys to give to her when she’s born.
“She’s also decided we have to call her Snow White. It was Aurora last week so we’ll probably have to name her Ariel or Elsa next week.”
Dad Chris, a car fitter, added: “It pulls at your heart strings a little bit.
“We had been waiting for about a month to find out what we were having and Myla was always adamant it was a girl.
“She decided she needed a sister to dress up as a Disney princess.
“We did have a chat about how she’d react if we were having a boy but it just would’ve meant that he’d have to play princesses with her at some point in his life.”
The scan was taken by family-run business Window to the Womb – which offers non-diagnostic 3D and 4D ultrasound scans to expectant parents from 16 to 34 weeks gestation.
Manager Julie Bowbanks said: “It was a beautiful moment enjoyed by the entire family that captured the first tears of sibling love.
“We pride ourselves in offering private ultrasound baby bonding scans to expectant parents.
“Family and friends are able to enjoy an experience previously reserved for mum only during her hospital scans.”
