If there is something four-month-old Iyla absolutely loves, it is her mother, Kristina Gauld’s rendition of the Disney classic Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid.
SWNS TV shared the video of the Plymouth mother singing to her daughter on March 20, 2018.
For many parents, spending precious time with their children helps them relax. It is wonderful to see their reactions when they experience something new.
It was something similar for Kristina and Steven Gauld, and they decided to capture their daughter’s reaction on camera.
The family would not have imagined that the simple pleasures of making one’s child smile would go viral.
The mother sat on the couch holding four-year-old Iyla on her lap. She began singing The Little Mermaid song, Part of Your World – a classic for any Disney fan.
From the moment Kristina began her performance, the little one seemed mesmerized by her mother’s voice. Her face brightens up, and she does not take her eyes off her mother.
The father, who was filming the reaction, watches silently but there is no doubt his heart must have been melting.
It also helps that Kristina is a talented singer who sounds just like someone from a Disney movie. With the perfect emphasis on certain moments of the song, she wins her daughter’s heart in an instant.
The reactions of the toddler are just beautiful to watch and are the reason the video went viral. The video garnered over 40,000 views on YouTube.
Kristina said that she was “amazed” with the response she has received. People have been writing from all over the world asking her to sing more songs.
The mother-of-two added that her passion for Disney songs could be traced back to her childhood when she would sing duets with her sister, Danni Parson. The Little Mermaid happens to be one of her favorites.
