This video of parents freaking out over their daughter singing is what all parents should be like
Prepare for an onslaught of adorableness coming your way. Brianna Rubia took to Twitter to share a video of her sister singing and her parents freaking out in quite possibly the sweetest, most genuine, most delightfully over-the-top way. It’s pretty much the equivalent of how you felt when you went to your first Backstreet Boys/’NYSNC/any dreamy heartthrob’s concert.
Rubia shared a video of her sister singing “Part Of Your World” from The Little Mermaid (solid song choice), and captured her parents full-on fangirling/fanboying out. “When I said my parents were supportive, I wasn’t kidding,” she wrote.
Nope. She definitely wasn’t. Her parents squirmed. They wagged their fingers enthusiastically. They looked BEYOND astounded. All parents, take notes. This is definitely the correct – and only – response to kids when they show off their talents.

Oh yeah, and then at one point Lin-Manuel Miranda hopped into the conversation.

Lots and lots of people applauded the parents for giving their daughter so much pure, unadulterated encouragement.
11/10 parents, 10/10 for the parenting, 1 extra for your dads facial expressions, godlike.— Mio (@miiioolsson) January 14, 2019
this the cutest shit i ever seen in my life wow u are so lucky to have such an amazing family— sarah ♡ | jungwoo lover (@bambiyoongles) January 14, 2019
ugh the love emitting from this video is incredible
And Rubia couldn’t have agreed more. “People really bloom differently when they get love and support from parents,” she wrote in response to one of the comments. “They can ge[t] it from friends, but it’s so different when it comes from the parents. KIDS NEED SUPPORT FROM THEIR PARENTS THAT’S IT.”
She added in another comment that her parents consistently praise their daughters with that amount of enthusiasm, so the overload of sweetness is nothing new for her.
“They’re always like that,” she tweeted. “That’s why my sister sang without laughing. We’re used to them acting like that…I just decided to record it this time.”
I guess the moral of this story is that we should all aspire to be like these two – finger wagging, face clutching, gasping, and all.
