A proud mother has won hearts all across the internet after interrupting her news reporter son during a shift, as her reaction to see him was captured on camera
No matter how grown-up we might think ourselves to be, parents will always find ways to make you feel like an embarrassed teenager again.
A reporter from Ohio was recently in for a surprise while out and about filming with a news crew, as his own mother driving up behind him to say hello.
Myles Harris, a broadcast journalist for ABC 6, was all set to give his report when he noticed a familiar car approaching. With a surprised smile, he gestured to the vehicle and told the cameraman: “That’s my mom”.
Myles’ mother, Sandi, appeared thoroughly delighted to see her son out at work, shouting “Hi baby!” from her car window.

Cameraman DeAngelo Byrd could be heard laughing away as the supportive mother drove up, while Myles also appeared to find the situation funny, jokingly scolding his mother as he said: “I’m trying to work right now”.
Myles, 30, proceeded to introduce Sandi to DeAngelo, with the excitable mother yelling out “Hi DeAngelo!”, clearly pleased as punch to meet her son’s work pal.
Moving his mother on, Myles teased: “And don’t be holding up traffic because you got cars behind you”.
She drove off, blowing him a goodbye kiss as she went. Turning to an amused DeAngelo, Myles asked: “Did you record that?”
DeAngelo did indeed record the hilarious impromptu family meet-up, with Myles since sharing the footage himself on Instagram, declaring the interruption to be “typical Sandi”.
People have since fallen for Sandi and her very relatable antics, with one of Myles’ tickled followers remarking that “my mom would absolutely do this”.
Another declared the vid to be “adorable”, declaring that there’s “nothing like a Momma’s love”, while a third quite rightly remarked, “Mom’s always gonna be your biggest cheerleader”.
Others shared stories of similar things happening to them during times when they had to stay in adult mode, with one commenter recalling, “My dad did the same thing to me when I was being interviewed on the radio. He called in and said “Hi baby” and I went into my five-year-old self and said “Hi Dad-deeee”.
