Madam Wati shared the heartwarming moment when she decided to surprise her nine-year-old son Adam Bin Mohammad with his favorite meal from McDonald’s.

In the video, Madam Wati showed how she tried to conceal the surprise by placing the meal inside plastic bags.

After laying down the breakfast on the table, Madam Wati escorted Adam out of his room but he thought his mom was trying to scare him. “I did not want to scare you. I wanted to surprise you,” she explained.

Adam took a bite of the chicken nugget and started tearing up and hugging it.

The mother explained that nuggets, fries, and ice cream are Adam’s favorite meal. “If McDonald’s sees this video, [I am] sure they will change their mascot from Ronald to Adam McDonald,” she joked.

Social media users said they were touched by Adam’s precious reaction.

“Adam is so cute. He appreciates it so much. My son has autism too and yes, he loves McDonald’s like Adam. Maybe I should get for him too,” Siti J. shared.

“So cute. He missed McDonald’s so much. McDo should consider him as a junior ambassador,” Z. Beevi said.

“I don’t know this family personally but Adam brought tears to my eyes. He is sooo sweet! Adam’s mommy is very lucky to have a son who can express his feelings like this, so Mummy knows he’s very appreciative,” another Facebook user commented.
