His mom had the best reaction
Matthew waited until his father was gone to tell his mother a secret he had been holding.
With the camera turned on, he had his mom sit down to talk.
‘Is it something damaging?’ she asked.
‘No,’ he replied.
‘Is it something about school?’
‘Nuh-uh,’ he answered.
‘Something about your personality?’ she continued to guess.
‘Uh… I don’t know,’ he said.
‘There’s nothing you could tell me that I’d ever stop loving you for. You know that,’ she assured him. At this point, Matthew’s eyes began to well up with tears.
‘Is it something about your personality?’ she guessed again.
‘I guess,’ he replied.
‘I don’t want you to guess, I want you to tell me,’ she stated. ‘Is it about girls or boys? Are you gay?’ she asked.
And with that, he nodded and began to cry.
‘That’s okay hun, I knew you were,’ she responded, going in for a hug.
‘I’m sorry,’ he stated in between sobs.
‘Don’t be sorry, silly,’ his mom said. ‘Don’t be sorry.’
‘I love you no matter what in the world. Don’t you know that? I just want you to be happy.’
Apparently, Matthew’s mom knew for a while. With her motherly intuition, she just figured. Her only concern was for her son’s happiness and well-being, especially amongst his peers.
‘I don’t want people to be mean to you,’ she said. ‘You’re born how you are. Don’t worry, I love you no matter what.’
What a wonderfully supportive mother Matthew has! It’s no wonder this video has gone viral.
