Baby Moved To Tears By Mom's Singing

Can A baby cry tears of joy?

Have you seen this amazing video via Gawker? If you haven't, it's only a matter of time. The 10-month-old baby's reaction to her mother singing is even more incredible than her mother's golden voice.  

When it was filmed, two months ago, Amanda performed Rod Stewart's "My Heart Can't Tell You No." Little Marie-Lynne appears so moved in the footage that she bursts into spontaneous tears. 

(In my case, my son would have cried from the pain inflicted upon his teeny eardrums, but digressing...) In this case Amanda can carry a tune beautifully, so beautifully in fact that it prompts an emotional reaction in her baby. 

Pray tell, baby experts of the world, tell me what the heck is going on here. Can a baby actually cry tears of joy? 

While you ponder that, crack out the tissues and check out another viral video guaranteed to keep the happy tears flowing.
