A five-year-old boy named Anthony dressed up in a costume to surprise his sweetheart Lila with flowers, chocolate and a plush toy ahead of Valentine’s Day.
His mother, Shelby Small, shared a video of the touching moment on TikTok on Sunday.
“My 5 year old son asks a girl in his class to be his Valentine,” Small captioned the clip.
The clip shows Anthony looking dapper in a navy blue suit as he patiently waits outside his classmate Lila’s house with her gifts in hand.
— May I see Lila? he politely asks the man who opens the door.
When Lila comes to see him, he gives her a bouquet of flowers, a box of heart-shaped chocolates, and a rainbow toy.
“Happy Valentine’s Day,” he says.
When Leela comes to the door to see him, he hands her all of her Valentine’s Day gifts.
Lila leaned over and hugged Anthony to thank him for the sweet gesture.
A woman who is presumed to be Leela’s mother offers to hold her gifts so she can hug Anthony to thank him before he leaves.
The video received over 148,000 comments from fans who were touched by Anthony’s romantic gesture.
“What a little gentleman,” enthused one person, while another added, “That was the cutest thing I’ve seen in a long time.”
Small (pictured with her son) explained in the comments that it was Anthony’s idea to dress up in the costume to surprise Leela, saying they only live three houses apart.
The video has been viewed over 32 million times and fans can’t stop admiring how “gentleman” he is.
“These parents like each other better because I think they will be related,” someone else joked.
Small responded to the commenter by saying that she knows Leela’s parents from high school and they live only three houses apart.
“There are a few GROWN men who need to take notes from this little guy,” one woman remarked, while another commented, “It really starts with the parents…they don’t make them like that anymore! Good job, young man.
However, the proud mom insisted that Lila’s surprise was entirely her son’s idea. She said she told him to “choose a nice shirt and he came up with it.”
