You might need to 3D print yourself a Kleenex after watching this.

Thirty-year-old Tatiana Guerra lost her sight when she was 17, and now she is 20 weeks pregnant.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Huggies Brazil has released a new video called “Meeting Murilo” in which Guerra receives a very special surprise.

In the clip, Guerra is having an ultrasound done, and the doctor asks her how she imagines his face.

“Oh I imagine him, well… his nose like a little potato. A small mouth, a chubby little hand,” she replies. “I can’t wait to smell him.”

While she can’t see the image herself, the doctors secretly 3D-print the image and present it to her so she can feel and “meet” her child for the very first time.

At the top of the sculpture “I am your son” is also printed in braille.

“I’m very happy to meet Murilo before he’s born,” she says in tears of joy. “Thanks, Doctor.”

It’s basically the opposite of how Princess Leia felt when she saw Han Solo trapped in carbonite for the first time.

Seven year old Padawan Colin Gilpatrick wrote a letter to George Lucas after discovering that Jedi could not get married:



Lucasfilm responded with a grab bag of goodies and an a-okay for Colin to wed.  



It's too cute, I can't handle it!




Colin's got a few good years to train in the force before setttling down, but it's nice to know he's got the official Lucasfilm blessing when the time comes.
