The first sense of a human being when he enters this world is the sense of hearing. That’s why parents are advised to talk to their child in the womb. Some people play classical or spiritual music too because it will make their child creative, calmer, and a better individual.
Little Antonella from Brazil is one lucky girl because her daddy talks to her daily while she’s still in the womb of her mother, Tarsila Batista. It’s the reason why when Antonella was born, she immediately smiled upon hearing the voice of her dad, Flávio Dantas.
Antonella made headlines on social media because people are touched by the photograph where she smiled to her father. People feel it’s a genuine smile, so it makes them emotional.
Tarsila said, “He always told her that he loved her so much.” She recalled, “They put her on top of me sleeping, and as soon as he spoke to her, Antonella opened her eyes and smiled.”
The doctors handed Antonella to her parents, and Flávio said the words he always said to her daughter when her mother is under pregnancy. When her father met and spoke to her, Little Antonella recognized her dad’s voice and smiled.
The camera captured that wonderful and heartwarming moment. It’s a beautiful photo that people talked about in social media. It’s a blessing to see the pure joy of parents upon first seeing their newborn child.
Flavio said, “I thought I knew what a feeling of true love was until I looked at that most sincere smile in the world … it was [there] that I could be sure what love is”. What made the moment more extraordinary is that Antonella came to the world on August 11, which is Father’s Day in Brazil. And it’s a day Flavio will never forget.
Tarsila described Antonella as “a gift sent by my Lord.”
