Micah is asked to say his name in the video and in no time the boy repeats it. His family members standing around him cheer and applaud for young Micah who is equally shocked, surprised and excited.
Micah’s video have already crossed over 10 million views. Though it was shared on TikTok, the video has been made available in YouTube for Indian users since TikTok is banned in India.
The family even started a Facebook page called ‘Micha’s family’ to document the boy’s milestones.
Haley McGuire told NewzWeek, “I’m just really emotional. I’m really proud of him. I don’t think I have an accurate word to describe how I’m feeling other than really–maybe I’m speechless”.
