A photo of a newborn baby who smiled instantly on hearing her daddy’s voice is melting hearts across the world. Its easy to see that the sweet baby girl, Antonella, is definitely a Daddy’s girl!
Flávio Dantas from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil used to spend time talking to his unborn baby every day, but little did he know the reaction he would get when she was born.
Flavio and his partner, Tarsila Rosa, revealed that each morning, before he left for work, Flavio spoke to his baby and Tarsila noticed how she would move around when he heard his voice.
“He always told her that he loved her so much,” mother Tarsila Batista said.
So when the day finally came for Antonella to be born, she gave a beautiful reaction on hearing daddy’s voice.
After she was delivered, the doctors handed over a sleepy Antonella to her parents. Flávio repeated the things he’d been telling Antonella all throughout the pregnancy and his newborn baby girl instantly beamed up in a heart-melting smile.
“They put her on top of me sleeping and as soon as he spoke to her, Antonella opened her eyes and smiled,” Tarsila Batista recalled.
Thankfully, cameras caught the incredible moment. And the beautiful photo has been going viral ever since!
“I thought I knew what a feeling of true love was, until I looked at that most sincere smile in the world … it was [there] that I could be sure what love is,” new dad, Flávio, said.
