Dad’s Heart-Wrenching Reaction To Baby Getting Shots Has Already Melted 12 Million Hearts

Any parent will tell you that when their child gets hurt, it hurts them worse. Watching your child go through any kind of pain – whether emotional or physical – is heartwrenching.

New dad Antwon Lee experienced this firsthand when he had to take his two-month-old son Debias King to the pediatrician for a round of vaccines.

It’s clear from a video taken in the room that this father and son already have a very strong bond. As the nurse gave Debias the medicine before giving him the shots, Antwon held him close and tried to comfort him.

“You’re taking it like a champ!” he encouraged his little one. “Stay strong. Look at me.”

“I know you’re gonna cry, but it’s okay to cry,” he added, anticipating what lay ahead.

As you watch, it’s clear the pep talk isn’t only for Debias. Antwon is trying to psych himself up, knowing it’s going to break his heart to see his son in pain.

Antwon held Debias’ hand as the nurse came over to give him his shots. Predictably, the baby began to cry as he got stuck with the needles. Antwon bathed his face with kisses and continued to give him words of encouragement. It seemed as though he was trying to hold back his own tears in the moment.

Once it was all over, Antwon joked around with his son and the nurses, holding Debias close and asking him to tell him what the nurses had done to him as his cries slowly subsided.

Antwon shared the video on Facebook, never expecting it to go viral, but it’s clear it has resounded with many parents’ hearts all over the world. The video has already been viewed over 12 million times in just a few days!

While he didn’t expect to gain internet fame, Antwon said he is glad he did and hopes other fathers will see the video and be encouraged to be in their kids’ lives.

Whether you’re a numbers person or one who’s more spiritual, you can appreciate this story because it speaks to everyone.

The miracle of a child coming into the world is a sight to behold. A new life beginning, one with so much potential and promise and so much love to be given. Who couldn’t be pleased with a new addition to a family?

Beauden Matthew James Eppard was born on July 1 of this year. A healthy lad, Beauden weighed in at eight pounds eleven ounces. 

But while the day of his birth may not seem particularly mentionable, the odds of little Beauden’s birth occurring on this exact date were an incredible 33,374 to 1. That’s because Beauden shares the same birth date as his father and great-grandfather!

The family patriarch, James Morrisette, came into the world on July 1, 1931. Beauden’s father, Connor James Eppard, was born on July 1, 1990. This means little Beauden is the third male in four generations to be born on this date.

What makes this story even more amazing is that Beauden was supposed to be born at the end of July. His mother, Jordyn Eppard, needed an emergency C-section.
