This is the adorable moment a toddler fell in love with her new born baby sister after meeting her for the first time.
There is no sign of sibling rivalry for two-year-old Madilyn Smith as she can be seen cooing over her new baby sister, Olivia.
The toddler’s sweet reaction is simply priceless as she joins her dad, Murdock, to visit mum, Cynthia, in hospital in Massachusetts.
The youngster, who is wearing a t-shirt saying ‘Olivia’s big sister’, can be heard cooing and is seen holding her hands to her chest before excitedly handing over a cuddly toy she bought for her new sister.
Beaming Madilyn then leans forward and gently touches Olivia while continually staring at the new born in awe.
Mum Cynthia said: “Madilyn had been very excited about the arrival of her baby sister, Olivia.
“My husband and I decided not to tell her that we were having her until after she arrived at the hospital to visit.
“My parents, who are off to the side in the video, brought Madilyn to the hospital and my husband met them downstairs to share the news with Madilyn that her baby sister had arrived.
“He brought her into the gift shop to let her pick out a gift before heading upstairs to meet Olivia. He said she went into the store with a purpose, picked out the cow and excitedly announced to everyone in the store that is was for her new baby sister.
“As you can see in the video she was very excited and emotional when meeting Olivia Marie.
“She is normally very animated and loud, so her sweet reaction, quiet “coos”, and the touching her own heart was priceless.
“Watching Madilyn and Olivia together makes the lack of sleep and dealing with toddler tantrums worth it.
“We look forward to watching their relationship evolve as they grow up.”
