The video of a deaf boy hearing his mother’s voice for the first time after being fitted with hearing aids went viral and everyone is touched after seeing the reaction of the boy.
Alex Denman-Sang has been practically deaf his whole life as he was born with Bilateral Moderate Sensorineural hearing loss.
The five-month-old boy was fitted with new hearing aids and his reaction was priceless when he heard his mom’s voice for the first time.
Alder Hey Children’s Hospital posted his adorable reaction on Twitter with the caption, ”Baby Alex was born with Bilateral Moderate Sensorineural hearing loss, making him almost deaf This is the amazing moment he is fitted with his new hearing aids and hears his mummy’s voice clearly for the first time.”
The clip has now been watched more than 830,000 times.
The footage shows Alex’s mother Jen Denman says ‘’Hello, it’s mummy’’ and the little boy smiles with joy hearing these words.
Jen Denman appeared with Alex on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ and talked about the moment that was filmed in July.
Doctors discovered Alex had a partial hearing loss after a routine newborn hearing test.
The mother said that she is learning baby sign language, introducing its use to her family so that as Alex gets older he will be able to understand.
Jen said: “The earlier you start it, the easier. Every time we say milk, mummy, daddy and brother we use sign language.”
