An 18-month old girl is melting hearts on the internet with a video of her greeting her three big brothers as they come home from school.
Emelia “Emmy” Muddamalle, the youngest of four, has spent most of her life so far in the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, she was used to her brothers – Liam, 10; Levi, 8; and Lucas, 6 – being around all the time.
Emmy has been left mostly at home with her parents now that their Charlotte, North Carolina schools have started for in-person classes.
Emmy’s mother, Brittany Muddamalle, told Good Morning America, “She never experienced her boys gone.” “This is the first time I’ve ever done something like this. ‘Where in the world are my brothers?’ she’ll ask when she wakes up from her nap, and she’ll look for them all day.”
Emmy can be seen sprinting down the sidewalk as quickly as her little legs can take her towards her three brothers, who are also sprinting towards her, with both parties yelling out each other’s names in the viral video.
They have an amazing group hug right in the center of the sidewalk when they eventually meet in the middle.
The video has been viewed over half a million times on ‘Good Morning America’ with over 38K likes.
