A mum caught the moment that her baby heard her voice for the very first time on camera, and we challenge anyone not to be moved to tears by the magical moment...
Alex Denman was born deaf, however he became an online sensation when his mum, Jen, shared footage of her saying: "Hello, it's mummy," to him after being fitted with cochlear implants.
Jen appeared on This Morning on Friday where she chatted to Rylan Clark-Neal and Gok Wan about the incredible moment her son heard for the first time.
The mum-of-two told how she had a perfectly normal pregnancy, however just days after birth Alex underwent a routine newborn hearing test and the results came back with 'no clear response'.
Doctors at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool tested Alex further to discover he had partial hearing loss called sensorineural hearing loss.
Jen and her Partner Paul Sang were told Alex would be fitted with hearing aids and they decided to capture the beautiful moment on film.
Initially, the video was just for family and friends, however Jen admitted she was overwhelmed the response they had received.
Rylan and Gok both clearly fell in love with Alex as they cooed him while chatting to Jen, and judging by the Twitter responses, they weren't the only ones smitten with the little boy.
One viewer gushed: "Ahhhhhow cute is little baby Alex... his little face when he hears his mum for the first time and how adorable is his little hair do?"
A second added: "Aw awaw Alex is so incredible, when he heard for the first time, and he couldn't stop smiling, it was adorable."
A third said: "That baby just chilling on their laps in front of all the cameras with no fuss is amazing."
Jen and Paul have now slowly started introducing sign language with Alex, so that he will begin to understand it as he gets older.
"The earlier you start it, the easier. Every time we say milk, mummy, daddy and brother we use sign language," Jen explained.
This Morning continues on Monday at 10.30am on ITV.
