Kalani Watson of Los Angeles asked his longtime stepfather Brandon Williamson to adopt him for his birthday. Even the stepdad is bawling by the end of it.
Watson had long called Williamson “dad,” said his mom Porsche Williamson as the married couple had started a relationship when Williamson was just a baby.
But in this video, Watson calls upon his stepdad to “stop playing and make it official.” And Williamson then opens a box that Watson gave him which contained the adoption papers.
Porsche said that she began planning the surprise with her son two months prior.
The video has now been viewed 3.5 million times on Facebook, so everyone else is freaking out about it, too.
Kalani, too, said he’s overjoyed.
“It felt good to let everything out and tell my dad how I feel about him,” Kalani said.
