Her father said she breaks out in smiles and giggles each morning when they turn her hearing aids on. In it, his daughter instantly begins squealing and laughing when she hears her mother's voice.

Paul Addison tweeted a video of Georgina, his four-month-old daughter, reacting to her mother's voice. The adorable footage quickly passed 10,000 likes and 150,000 views on Twitter in under 24 hours.

Addison filmed the tear-jerking moment and shared it on Twitter.

Part of that positive is that each morning, Paul said Georgina reacts to hearing her parents like it's a completely new experience.

Mr Addison, from Harrogate, Yorkshire, said: "You use these hearing aids and it's like the lights have been switched on". The transformation from the moment before they turn on the aids to after is astounding, Addison says.

Hearts melted all over the internet after a hearing-impaired baby could be seen in a viral video listening to her parents voice for the first time, squeaking with happiness.

Actor Chris O'Dowd was among the people to respond to Mr Addison's video, doing so with a heart emoji, while the National Deaf Children's Society tweeted "What an unbelievable expression?!"
