VIDEO: Irish kid cries tears of joy as his parents reveal his early Christmas present

Joe Harrington

What a great kid.

JOE reader Edel Phelan contacted us tonight with a video of her young son Kai receiving an early Christmas present and it’s one of the nicest clips we’ve seen in ages.

Edel told JOE, “My husband and I are Irish and have lived in Beijing the last ten years with our two kids.

“We are home for a family wedding and as our son Kai is a die hard United fanatic we booked tickets for his birthday, which is Wednesday and Christmas.

“He is the sweetest kid you will ever meet and his reaction has had us all in tears.”

Watch Kai’s brilliant reaction here, you might shed a tear yourself.

My sons reaction to his early Christmas/birthday present. 🙂

We posted the story on Twitter last night and it reached the people at Manchester United who got in touch with this message.

Enjoy the game, Kai.

Cheers to Edel for sending this our way.  If you have something you would like to share with us, send it to [email protected] or hit us up on Facebook or Twitter.
