The comical moment left TikToker Kara Saba in fits of laughter. Many praised her 'good hearted' response, while others said that she should have alerted the tot's parents.
Watch the cute video here:
Kara filmed the sweet clip with her partner, during a flight between Detroit and Charleston for their honeymoon.
The footage shows the lively tot's tiny arm emerging from around the side of Kara's plane seat and continuously tapping her on the arm.
Kara and her partner quickly get the giggles and struggle to hold it together as they film the incident, laughing into the camera.
From the seat behind, the toddler carries on reaching out for Kara's arm, lightly tapping and grabbing her.
Once posted to Kara's TikTok, the video quickly went viral, clocking up over 11 million views in rapid time.
The TikToker's caption read: "Her name was Adeline and I hope her mom sees this."
Many viewers rushed to praise Kara and her partner for their "good hearted" and "joyful" reaction to the situation, thanking them on behalf of "mamas everywhere."
One commented: "THANK YOU on behalf of mamas everywhere for being able to find the joy in a situation like this.
"The world needs more of y'all."
Another chimed in: "Good hearted people, just laughing about it. Love to see it."
While a third wrote: "So many people hate on parents with kids on planes...I love that you just let her be a child."
But other viewers weren't so approving, with some indicating that Kara should have informed the tot's parents what was happening.
"No thank you....let the parents know," said one.
A second viewer commented: "That would be my kid," to which another blasted: "Touching strangers without their permission? Growing up to assault people. Ok."
There's certainly a split of opinion here. Here at Tyla HQ, we love Kara's response - what would you do in her shoes?
