There are moments that truly take your breath away and brings us tears of joy, and this video which shows the beautiful moment that four-month-old baby got to see his mum for the very first time will surely touch your heart.

The little baby at the centre of it all Leopold Reppond who suffers from Oculocutaneous Albinism (OCA), a rare condition which affects colouring of the skin, hair, and eyes and left him with extremely impaired vision has caught the world’s attention and hearts after his and his mum’s historic moment was caught on camera.

Little Leo who received his brand new specially made glasses showed us that every moment is special when he broke into a beautiful beaming smile when he seen his delighted mum for the very first tie this week.

The emotional moment which was filed by Leo’s dad David Reppond, 39, told reporters that ‘the cuteness went through the roof’ when his son smiled at his wife and added that there ‘wasn’t a dry eye in the house’.

The over the moon dad further explained: “I had some issues holding the camera because I was crying so much,’ he admitted.” “I was overwhelmed with emotion. It’s just very touching. You cannot anticipate how you’re going to feel when something like that happens.”

“It was very heartwarming. Leo looked at my wife for the first time and saw her for the first time”

The heartwarming moment was all made possible after expert opticians made him specialised glasses out of rubber, with no sharp edges, no screws and no hinges to keep him totally safe.
