It is not easy to travel with a child. Mainly due to the extra luggage one has to carry and having to keep an eye on the kids as they are constantly running around. A toddler's mom, Zephaniah Henry (who goes by @zephanarnia on TikTok), found herself in a similar situation. But she wasn't alone as a stranger decided to help out her on the plane they were flying in. She shared a video of how the man on her flight took the extra effort to ease her worries, from holding the stroller to carrying the child around in the plane.

The video shows a man waiting to board the flight while holding a car seat in one hand and a grey bag in the other. He is seen wearing a brown jacket and black pants. The video's text overlay reads, "This man saw me struggling to travel with my toddler for the first time and immediately helped me carry his car seat/ stroller." Later, he holds Asaph, the toddler's hand, while boarding the plane. That's not all. The child can be seen standing on the pilot's deck and talking to him. Apparently, the stranger took Asaph to meet the pilot.

When the child throws tantrums, the man takes him in his arms and roams around in the plane. The overlay text reads, "I was crying because I was overstimulated and he offered to walk him around to give me a break." The stranger also shares a cherished memory he has with his kids. "He said that he used to love walking his children back and forth on the plane to help them fall asleep when they were younger." In the next frame, he can again be seen carrying Asaph and walking back and forth on the plane. The video ends with the overlay text, "Whoever's father this is, he is an angel."

The video went viral, garnering nearly 4 million views. It is captioned, "The plane was in the air when he was walking my son around by the way." People loved the man's kind gesture. @shanasells commented, "Not he showing him off like that's his grandson. Every day, I cry on this app." @j.serrot wrote, "The genuine joy in that man's eyes when holding your baby. My heart exploded." @obaahemaa_owusu_nketia expressed, "This is what we call a human being."

@clinearoskincare shared, "That is the smile of a man who loved every minute of his kids being babies, something his heart yearning for again. He needed this. His smile tells his love for his kids." @gabiesguides said, "As an overstimulated mama, I’m crying from how a stranger offered to give you a little peace." @brookebell13 added, "We need to all be there for each other, I'm so tired of the hate and hurt. I just want us all to help uplift each other."
