The internet fell in love with this little guy who broke down during his mom’s wedding.

Tearra and Bryant Suber of Ohio got married on a beautiful September day in 2016.

As the photos captured so perfectly, there was a lot of joy to go around.


“We both played basketball in high school,” Tearra told People, explaining how the pair first met. “[Bryant] started hanging out ... in front of the gym. He knew a little bit about me before he shot his shot.”

All the pics from their special day are beautiful. But one taken of Tearra and Bryant's son, Bryson, may have stolen the show.

“As everyone stood up and waited for the bride to come down the aisle, [Bryson] started expressing so much emotion,” photographer Paul Woo of Wandering Woo Photography said in a statement provided to Upworthy.

Woo was conflicted. He needed to make sure he got plenty of shots of the bride walking down the aisle, but Bryson's raw emotion was incredibly powerful. “I knew this moment was THE moment,” Woo says.

Fortunately, he was able to capture both with his lens.

Bryson’s brother Brayden — on the left below — was a little less caught up in the moment.

But the tears sure were flowing for then-5-year-old Bryson. ❤️

“He saw me struggling to get down the aisle,” Tearra told People. “Seeing his mom, at that moment on that day, it triggered his emotions. It was an emotional moment for me, too.”

Seeing her son’s tears, Tearra said, “about broke [her] into pieces.”

When Tearra shared the photo of Bryson on her Instagram, the comment section was flooded with heartwarming messages.

“This. Is. Everything!!” one user wrote.

“He’s a natural born star,” a loved one chimed in. “I been saying it for years. Just a matter of time before the world knows Bryson.”

“I can’t stop crying,” someone else wrote.

(Can you blame them? It just doesn't get any cuter!)

Tearra further explained on Instagram what was going through her head when she saw Bryson break down:

“I hadn’t yet realized that my sweet, soulful, oldest baby boy was also sharing in on this moment so deeply with us. Taking in every breath, right along with us! To see him share such strong emotions of joy and happiness for the union of his parents was seriously one of the most powerful moments I’ve experienced to date!”

After the photo of Bryson went viral, Tearra said it’s been a gift remembering what that September day felt like again.

“We are very blessed and grateful that it’s getting attention,” Tearra told People. “It kind of allows us to relive that moment and that day, [and] rethink about how beautiful and how grateful we are to have experienced that. It definitely takes us back to that lovely day.”

Bryson has reminded the world that, yes, boys do cry. It’s a healthy — and sometimes absolutely adorable — part of being human.

If the past year has taught us nothing else, it's that sending love out into the world through selfless acts of kindness can have a positive ripple effect on people and communities. People all over the United States seemed to have gotten the message — 71% of those surveyed by the World Giving Index helped a stranger in need in 2020. A nonprofit survey found 90% helped others by running errands, calling, texting and sending care packages. Many people needed a boost last year in one way or another and obliging good neighbors heeded the call over and over again — and continue to make a positive impact through their actions in this new year.

Upworthy and P&G Good Everyday wanted to help keep kindness going strong, so they partnered up to create the Lead with Love Fund. The fund awards do-gooders in communities around the country with grants to help them continue on with their unique missions. Hundreds of nominations came pouring in and five winners were selected based on three criteria: the impact of action, uniqueness, and "Upworthy-ness" of their story.

Here's a look at the five winners:

Edith Ornelas, co-creator of Mariposas Collective in Memphis, Tenn.

Edith Ornelas has a deep-rooted connection to the asylum-seeking immigrant families she brings food and supplies to families in Memphis, Tenn. She was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States when she was 7 years old with her parents and sister. Edith grew up in Chicago, then moved to Memphis in 2016, where she quickly realized how few community programs existed for immigrants. Two years later, she helped create Mariposas Collective, which initially aimed to help families who had just been released from detention centers and were seeking asylum. The collective started out small but has since grown to approximately 400 volunteers.

If you've never seen a Maori haka performed, you're missing out.

The Maori are the indigenous peoples of New Zealand, and their language and customs are an integral part of the island nation. One of the most recognizable Maori traditions outside of New Zealand is the haka, a ceremonial dance or challenge usually performed in a group. The haka represents the pride, strength, and unity of a tribe and is characterized by foot-stamping, body slapping, tongue protrusions, and rhythmic chanting.

Haka is performed at weddings as a sign of reverence and respect for the bride and groom and are also frequently seen before sports competitions, such as rugby matches.

Here's an example of a rugby haka:

Budweiser beer, and its low-calorie counterpart, Bud Light, have created some of the most memorable Super Bowl commercials of the past 37 years.

There were the Clydesdales playing football and the poor lost puppy who found its way home because of the helpful horses. Then there were the funny frogs who repeated the brand name, "Bud," "Weis," "Er."

We can't forget the "Wassup?!" ad that premiered in December 1999, spawning the most obnoxious catchphrase of the new millennium.

Anyone who's an educator knows that teaching is about a lot more than a paycheck. "Teaching is not a job, but a way of life, a lens by which I see the world, and I can't imagine a life that did not include the ups and downs of changing and being changed by other people," Amber Chandler writes in Education Week.

So it's no surprise that Kelly Klein, 54, who's taught at Falcon Heights Elementary in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, for the past 32 years still teaches her kindergarten class even as she is being treated for stage-3 ovarian cancer.

Her class is learning remotely due to the COIVD-19 pandemic, so she is able to continue doing what she loves from her computer at M Health Fairview Lakes Medical Center in Wyoming, Minnesota, even while undergoing chemotherapy.
