In lovely footage, a gorilla brings her baby to meet this mother and newborn

Must Read

This is the delightfully bonding moment between a gorilla and a woman over their newborn babies!

Motherly love is certainly the most powerful force on the planet, as this viral moment exemplifies.

When Michael Austin, his wife Emmily, and their newborn baby went to the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston, they had no idea they would have one of the most poignant meetings a person and a wild animal could possibly have.

“When I walked into the zoo that day, I never could’ve imagined that we’d have this experience,” Emmily remarked.

They had quite an encounter when they got close to Kiki’s enclosure — an endangered Western Lowland gorilla.

The young family came to a halt when they noticed the gorilla in her 7-month-old son’s company.

It didn’t take long for Kiki and her baby Pablo to approach their guest, but what occurred next was incredible.

Michael told The Dodo, “My wife held up our son to show to Kiki.” 

“Then she [the gorilla] grabbed Pablo and put him on her leg to carry him over to us.”

The two mothers then had a brief yet wonderful interaction. And all the while, they appear to be conversing in the same language.

It was a truly unique and passionate relationship. Michael also captured the scene on his cellphone, and the video went viral.

Michael says, “It was one of the most amazing experiences.”   

“Kiki was talking to us with her hands. Pablo even pushed his face up to the glass at one point and they watched him, noses touching, together. My wife and I both had tears in our eyes.”
