Watch This Boy Find Out He’s Going to Be a Big Brother
Is it the British accent? His polite articulation? His disbelief? Maybe it’s the whole package, but 5-year-old Ethan’s reaction to becoming a big brother might just be the best we’ve seen yet.
“Is it in your belly? Are you really having a baby? Is it in there?” he fires off a litany of questions for mom Sarah Bromby, who posted the video on Facebook.
“I’m going to be a big brother!” he squeals. Followed by a very serious, “I hope you’re not joking.”
Bromby also expertly dodged Ethan’s “Where do babies come from?” question.
“Why did you make it?” he asks.
“Um, cause we did. Do you want to be a big brother?” she says, steering the conversation back towards his excitement.
