CAPE MAY, N.J. — A sweet moment shared between a brother and a sister has recently gone viral and it’s likely due to the precious story behind the video.

When Abby Stout got a hamster for a pet, her brother Daniel decided that he wanted one, as well so he decided to do chores around the house to save enough money so he could buy one.

Before Daniel could buy himself a hamster, his sister gathered her birthday money and told her mom that she wanted to surprise her brother with a hamster.

Abby and Daniel’s mom recorded the moment that Abby surprised Daniel with the hamster.

“I got you a hamster,” she says in the video. “I paid for it.”

Daniel immediately grabs his sister and embraces her in a big hug.

“Are you crying?” Abby asks before she says, “because I am.”

The video has nearly two million views in just five days.
