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.

Need advice for telling your child you’re expecting? If he’s old enough to understand, you’ll want to be sure to communicate that you and your partner won’t have as much time to spend with him. But you’ll also want to maintain as much normalcy as possible. (Read more here.)
