Extra: Orangutan kisses pregnant woman’s belly

The Daily Catch - published on 09/11/16

We can always count on Littlethings.com to cheer us up. On this long day when we remember the tragic events of 15 years ago, we would like to offer this respite from the mournful memories. This woman reveals to an Orangutan that she is pregnant and the animal begins to show joy and affection, gently caressing the glass and kissing it where he belly is.

She and her husband were looking at a particularly large orangutan, when suddenly he became fixated on her baby bump. As Mom got closer to the glass this huge animal honestly seems to have gotten emotional at the tiny life within this woman. He softly caressed her belly over the glass and at one point even kissed right where the baby was sitting. It’s truly an amazing sight to behold, and it’s obvious that this huge creature knows exactly what’s about to happen to this mom. He seems to know that there’s going to be a new baby in the world very soon, and he honestly seems happy about it. Even though we’re not a huge fan of zoos, it should be noted that this beautiful animal is working as an ambassador to help spread awareness to people who visit him to let them know how important his species is.

We hope that this video brings a smile to your face on this sad and mournful day. God Bless you all and God bless America.
