A father and son’s emotional reaction to meeting their ‘miracle’ newborn daughter/sister went viral and brought millions to tears.
The touching footage, posted to the Instagram account @baby__adorable but originally filmed and uploaded by dad @joaoprudencioneto, quickly amassed millions of views and thousands of comments.
According to the Instagram post, his newborn daughter Giovanna was a “miracle” that the family had vehemently prayed for. João Prudencio Neto of Brazil and his wife, Karolinne, didn’t think they’d ever be able to have any more kids. After Karolinne gave birth to the couple’s first child, David, João became ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟᴇ.
Even though it seemed impossible, João continued praying for the Lord to heal him. He and Karolinne desperately wanted to give David a sibling. And rather than try any kind of medical intervention, the couple turned to prayer.
They prayed every day to Jeus to heal João and bless them with another child. And in the end, all those prayers finally came true, João’s family had another child.
His Instagram caption for the post (translated from Portuguese): “After having our first child David, I became ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟᴇ. It was impossible to be a father again with zero sperm production. My wife @karolinneprudencio was healthy and also dreamed of having another child. Until the Lord Jesus healed me, giving me life so I could generate another.
“Giovanna’s birth is not only a blessing for our family but also for all those who dream of one day living the miracle that only Jesus can do. We prayed every day for a miracle. I was a father again without any ᴀʀᴛɪꜰɪᴄɪᴀʟ procedures. Glory to God! All this emotion is for the miracle performed; my wife is very well and happy!”
And the day the baby was born was a day of joy for the whole family, including the son of the João family. Both father and son hugged Giovanna’s head and cried because they were grateful for the miracle that God had brought to their family.
