TAMPA, Fla. — Grab the tissues — video of a family's Father's Day gift may bring happy tears.
Crystal Aponte tweeted the video of her dad, Andy Aponte, opening what looked like a regular gift bag on Saturday night. A few seconds into the video Andy Aponte pulls out a Chewbacca teddy bear. When the father realizes that the teddy bear talks, he received a heartwarming message from Crystal's sister, Cassandra and her husband.
"Hey dad, just wanted to wish you a very happy father's day and to let you know that...we're having a baby!" a recording in the bear said.
The baby announcement left Andy speechless, hugging onto "Chewy" and crying happy tears.
Watch the video below:
Many on Twitter loved the video, but questioned why nobody went to hug Andy Apnote, his response:
We were too busy crying they needed a hug as well.

Andy Aponte said on his personal Twitter page that this will be his first grandchild and that when he or she is born he will be holding his grandchild in one arm and Chewy in another to give us all a first glimpse.
