Mom's Wish To 'Teleport' Daughter From New York Comes True in Viral Clip

A video of a daughter shocking her mother with a surprise visit on her birthday has gone viral on TikTok.

The video shared by TikToker @_diamacondro, which had 1.9 million likes at the time of writing, was captioned with a message that read: "When my sister called our mom and said that she wished she could teleport to Paris from New York for her birthday!"

The clip shows the mother sitting at a café table on a city street while talking on a cellphone, with her back facing the street.

A sunglasses-clad woman is later seen in the background approaching the table while also talking on a mobile phone. She stops at the table and stands just behind the mother while carrying on with her phone conversation.

Unaware of the daughter standing behind her, the mom continues to speak on the phone before she turns around and is shocked to spot her child.

With hands on her face, the mom sits at the table in a tearful moment before getting up to embrace her daughter.

In a study of more than 2,000 people released by U.K. relationships charity Relate in July 2020, 61 percent of respondents said that lockdowns amid the COVID-19 pandemic "made them realize relationships are the most important thing in their lives."

"While we may have been practicing social distancing during lockdown, many have realized their emotional bonds with loved ones have strengthened," the study said.

Nearly half (43 percent) of those surveyed who have parents said they felt "emotionally closer" to them as a result of lockdown.

The most common reasons for feeling emotionally closer to parents were the following, according to the study:

  • Because of speaking to them more often (45 percent)
  • Because lockdown helped them realize how much their parents mean to them (41 percent)
  • Because they have been supporting their parents through lockdown (32 percent)

More than a third (34 to 36 percent) of those who have siblings or grandparents have felt closer to them since lockdown, while just under a third of respondents (30 to 31 percent) also felt closer to their neighbor or friends, the study showed.

The latest video of the mother-daughter reunion has delighted users on TikTok, with some moved to tears.

In a comment that got 24,000 likes, user lmnmclv said: "As a Mom, my heart is melting over this."

In a comment that received 11,600 likes at the time of writing, user Nathaly Del Pozo wrote: "I cried, real tears."

User Cheryl Porter | Vocal Coach simply wrote: "that embrace," while user brad carter800 wrote: "lol teleportation exists!!"

Newsweek has contacted the original poster for comment.
