Baby With Hearing Aid Hears Mother's Voice for First Time in Emotional Video

An incredible video of the moment a baby girl was able to hear for the first time has gone viral online, having garnered 784,300 views.

In the footage, which was shared to TikTok by a woman named Christina, known on the app as Christina_pax, a mother can be seen holding her baby.

A hearing aid is visible in the child's ear and she is looking up at her mother.

Text overlaying the video reads: "I debated on whether to post this video of my deaf daughter hearing for the first time.

"Hearing aids are not some magical 'fix' for deaf people. Deaf people don't need to be fixed.

"They're just a tool to access sound but this was a pretty cool moment for us."

Christina then begins speaking to her child, saying "Yes, hello. I know its weird."

The little girl looks stunned as she hears her mother's voice for the first time; her face displaying a range of emotions.

The baby then smiles, prompting her mother to ask: "Is it funny? Yeh, it is funny."

Christina then repeatedly tells her baby: "I love you."

The emotional footage, which can be watched here, is captioned: "Allll the emotions hearing Mama's voice for the 1st time #deafkidsrock #deafawareness #hearingaidsgang #babytok #momsoftiktok #momtok #toddlertok #fyp."

The video has gained lots of traction since it was shared on November 2, having attracted more than 113,000 likes.

Additionally, 6,100 people have already headed to the comments section to share their opinions on the tear-jerking moment.

One TikTok user, Stokesmama5, wrote: "She's so in love with the voice she's known in her whole soul forever."

Another person, Kaitlyn Marie Vander, added: "A tool to access sound—I really like that wording."

Msholc typed: "Omg [oh my god] the intense way she's taking it in and soaking you in. She is both happy and overwhelmed."

User3213510730004 remarked: "And it will be so much better without masks."

TheseDeafKidsRock commented: "I am so proud of you for understanding the culture mama!!! My first son cried as well."

Kia K revealed: "So I cried and then laughed. She loves it but was so emotional and then was like what the heck and then love."

A video also recently went viral showing the moment a baby realized that her dad was an identical twin.

The footage, which was posted to Instagram by mom Nathalie Fooks, shows her baby daughter Ariah sitting on a table in a child seat.

She looks at her father who is on one side of her, then back to her uncle with a look of shock mingled with awe.
