There is nothing more delightful as a parent than when your child says "Mama" or "Dada"—or some variation thereof—for the first time. That verbal recognition is a precious moment that most parents treasure, but few are able to catch on video. Unless you have a camera on your little one 24/7 (which would be a little creepy), most major kid milestones live only in our memories or as notes in a scrapbook.
Comedian and actress Amy Schumer got lucky this week, though. She managed to catch her son Gene, who is 16 months old, saying "Dad" for the first time on video. And naturally, it's adorable.
"We just wanted to say hi Daddy, we miss you and we hope you're having a fun day," Schumer said in the video, referring to her husband Chris Fisher, who wasn't home. "Can you say 'Dad'?" she then said to Gene, who paused for a moment then obliged.
Schumer and whoever is behind the camera gasped in surprise, and a woman sitting at the dining table started clapping when he said it. And for a moment, Gene got excited, too.
