One reason I love following Victoria Beckham on Instagram is because, in addition to posting gorgeous shots of her designs, the wife of David Beckham and mom of Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper shares adorable family moments. The latest: A video of her eldest son, Brooklyn, surprising his dad on his birthday.
Warning: This video actually made me tear up at my desk.
I'm not sure if it's watching David Beckham cry, hearing Brooklyn sweetly asking his dad, "you okay?" multiple times, or hearing Harper's voice at the end announcing "I didn't know Brooklyn was coming!" that gets me the most. IT'S ALL TOO MUCH.
"The biggest surprise of the day.... Welcome home @brooklynbeckham X happy birthday @davidbeckham I love u so much x kisses," Victoria captioned the video. In the version he posted, David wrote, "Best birthday surprise, my big boy coming home @brooklynbeckham@victoriabeckham @romeobeckham@cruzbeckham #HarperSeven." Honestly, who isn't crying yet?
Ahead of the surprise, Victoria had shared a birthday shot of her husband and kids sans Brooklyn to wish David a happy birthday:
Each of the kids shared birthday posts for their dad as well:

Victoria even posted a video for their daughter, Harper, who doesn't have Instagram. The video shows the 6-year-old reading the birthday card she wrote for her dad out loud:
Honestly, I could watch videos of this family exhibiting public displays of love and affection on social media all day. Also, I wish Harper Beckham would make me a birthday card.
