Incredible moment deaf baby smiles when his dad starts singing to him

Zach has been singing the song to Judah since he was born at 23 weeks weighing under 2lbs with bleeding on his brain.

He was kept in the intensive care unit for the first six months of his life, but the incredible boy has managed to pull through every operation he has faced in his short life.

In the footage, Zach’s mother Linda films the father and son at home in Lumberton, North Carolina, US, as he belts out the notes.

It clearly works for Judah, who flashes a grin as his dead is reduced to tears.

‘It’s just a truly magical moment between me and my son – every time I watch the video back and see his smile, I tear up.

He describes his son as a’miracle’ and says Judah’s smile has never-waivered, despite his complex conditions.

‘Every obstacle he has faced he has overcome and will continue to do so – he’s a real miracle,’ Zach said.

‘I can remember even when Judah was in the NICU he was smiling – since he was born and aware he was in the world, he’s never stopped smiling.

‘He has a heart of gold and can bring the toughest of men to tears.
