5-Year-Old Boy Cuddles In Stranger’s Arms During Football Match

A viral picture of a 5-years-old boy cuddling up in the arms of a stranger at a football match has warmed thousands of peoples hearts all over the world.


The aunt of the boy captured the moment when the boy approached the woman whom they had only met once. She was even more surprised when the little boy crawled into the stranger’s lap despite having only known her for 20 minutes.

The woman rocked the boy to sleep and it moved the aunt so much that she took a picture of them and shared it on social media. The picture is especially significant today as it depicts love regardless of color and background.

The incident

Isaiah and his aunt, Star, went to a football game and as they were enjoying the game, Isaiah went over to the woman. “He sat on her lap and they were talking like they knew each other,” she wrote. “It lasted no more than 20 mins. However, she left right after halftime to meet up with her little girl.”


When Star and Isaiah went to the next game, Isaiah approached the woman who was there again. “Not long after we sat down at the game Isaiah spotted her,” she continued. “She waved at him and he made his way up to her. I thought their interaction would be the same as last time but I was wrong.”

“Isaiah walked right up to her smiling, crawled in her lap and laid his head down on her shoulder. She welcomed him with open arms. This lady patted and rocked Isaiah to sleep like he had given birth to him. It was the sweetest!!” When Star asked her if she wanted her to get Isaiah, she said it was fine. “Isaiah and this lady has NEVER met before other than those 20 mins at a game 2 weeks ago,” Star explained. But their interaction seemed like they have known for a long time.

Love sees no race or color

After the game, Star apologized to the woman if Isaiah kept bothering her, but she assured her that she was enjoying her time with her newfound friend. The woman had only one child who was 15-years-old and she found the moments with Isaiah as priceless.

Star exhorted, “With all of the racial tension that’s going on I’m glad to see the pictures like these because it goes to show color don’t matter to a lot of people. It really don’t!! Arguing over stuff as such makes us miss the simple pleasures in life. I hate I didn’t get her name but I will next game because I’m sure Isaiah will make his way back to her. I love her and don’t know her!”
