A heartbreaking video captured the emotional moment a little boy is given a ‘daddy doll’ to fill in for his father who is working away from home on a gas pipeline in Western Australia.

After being presented with the doll who has his dads picture sewn on it, the little boy looks at his father’s face for a while, before hugging the toy tightly and breaking down into tears.

The dolls are created by fellow parent Lauren Martin from New South Wales, Australia, whose husband is also forced to work away from home.

The kids reaction will hit you right in the feels.
