Adorable toddler goes viral for how she lit up after finding her family in dance recital audience

A 3-year-old toddler’s love for her family was on full display at her first-ever dance recital when her face was seen lighting up as she found them in the audience.

In a TikTok video that was reportedly seen more than 18 million times — it appears to have since been deleted — the adorable Massachusetts toddler was participating in her first holiday recital and can be seen searching the audience for her family. When she locates them, her face brightens up as if the sun had just come out.

The little girl’s mother, Chelsea Krow, 30, shared the video on TikTok and she told the Daily Mail that in addition to her and her husband, the toddler’s little sister and “aunties and uncles” were also on hand to watch the recital.

As seen in the footage, the 3-year-old was up on stage with the rest of the performers, wearing a black leotard and red tutu. With a somewhat serious look on her face, she is scanning the crowd and there is no mistake as to the exact moment she discovered what she was looking for:


Krow explained to the British tabloid that they signed their daughter up for dance to help her “develop confidence,” and that the recital was a big moment for her because she had “practiced her routine all month long.”

Mom also said her little girl would only allow her and dad to “listen to her dance routine song for the entire month.”

“We are so thrilled with the response and how positive everyone has been! She has spread so much love and joy. It’s so nice to see humanity united in a positive way,” Krow told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
