Grab a tissue because here’s a story that will warm your heart and bring a tear to your eye!

Flying with kids can be challenging, especially if you’re pregnant and travelling on your own with a toddler – which is exactly the situation a lady found herself in this week.

Why? Because he’s a dad and he knew that a little help would go a long way.

This thoughtful man stepped in to cradle the crying tot and give the mum a break. Just because. And luckily for us, a fellow passenger uploaded the gesture on Facebook so that we can all share the love:
