We've seen tons and tons of videos of children being given the news that they're going to be big brothers and big sisters, but never has one made us weep openly — until now.

Six-year-old Jake Dooley from Ireland has had us in puddles of tears since we first saw the video of his reaction to finding out his mama is pregnant, and now we can't stop replaying it. In the video, his dad sits behind the camera as his mom hands the sweet boy flashcards to read.

I know you have been wishing and praying for me for a long time now. I'm sorry I took so long to get here, but I am here now — look at your t-shirt.

The little man looks down at his shirt totally confused, until his mom hands him what appears to be a sonogram, and then a t-shirt that declares his big brother status. He immediately breaks down, and through sobs tells his parents, "I'm so happy."

His little brother or sister is going to be one lucky kiddo, that's for sure. Watch the video to see Jake's infectious joy, and cue your own personal waterworks.
