Empathetic Babies: Aw! See this sweet baby burst into tears whenever dad cries

Fabian Herrera is the proud papa of a particularly empathetic 6-month-old, and in a clip titled “Sweetheart Baby,” he shows off his little guy’s tender nature.

“I just had to get it on video so you could see that Aris is a natural sweetheart,” Fabian explains to the camera. “Anytime he sees me cry, it makes him want to cry, too.”

The good news is that Aris not only follows Fabian’s cue to cry, but he also stops crying when dad does. So the waterworks don’t flow for long.

This touching duo isn’t the only daddy-baby team to master this trick. After watching their clip, be sure to check out these classic cry partners:
