Roommates, grab your tissues, make-up wipes, cleansers – all you need to do to secure the tears that will flow after watching this paternity moment between a father and his son.
There are countless stories floating around on the web that highlight the beautiful relationship between parents and their children. However, anyone, parent or guardian, can understand how difficult it is to capture this bond through words. Love stays out of distance or time, especially for these two.
In a 45-second broadcast video, a little boy named Benji is seen sniffing at his seemingly comfortable twin bed (not literally). Suddenly, her father enters the frame and tries to wake Benji gently. A father named Ralph pulls out the duvet cover and taps and rubs Benazir’s back. In response, her son tries to move to the other side of her bed.
But the father did not give up. She rubbed her hair and leaned over for a kiss on the cheek. Benji seems to be upset – maybe thinking that her mother is trying to deprive her of sleep. He got down on his knees and confronted his father.
Still, sleep is shaking, it takes Benazir a moment to understand who she is looking at. When he does, he calls out “Daddy” and wraps his arms around his neck and turns his body towards Daddy. Ralph lifts Benji out of bed and wraps him in a tight hug.
Benji repeats “Daddy” in a breathless voice that points to heavy tears. Ralph consoles his son in that embrace and tells him “OK.”
The moment is heartwarming, yet undoubtedly sweet and special. Even while typing it, your writer shoots a few big shots at the keyboard chile!
Shed Room spoke to his wife and mother, Mick Watts, on his Instagram account. Mick reveals behind-the-scenes details of his son’s loving response.
“My husband is away at a military installation, during this video he made a surprise visit to the house,” Mick wrote in a message. “Our son didn’t know she was coming, so it was a complete and utter surprise when he saw her in the morning.”
Prior to the reunion, Ralph spent six months in a military installation away from his family. Now, the family unit is navigating an additional six months of its deployment.
While we are sending them light and love, we are sure that we can’t wait to see Benazir’s face when Dad comes home again!
