This is so cute!
Odell Beckham Jr. is one of the best football players in the NFL right now, so it makes sense that a lot of kids look up to him when he takes the field on Sundays. This Christmas, one young OBJ fan got the gift of a lifetime — and his reaction was one for the ages! Seriously, this is SO adorable!
On Christmas Day, an Instagram user shared a wonderful video of his son receiving a replica of Beckham’s football jersey for the Cleveland Browns. Immediately upon unwrapping the gift, the ecstatic boy breaks down into tears, leading to an incredible viral video clip, as you can see (below):
As expected, the star wide receiver loved it, too — and shared his own reaction to the incredible unwrapping when he saw it later on Christmas Day:
Man really amazing!! Merry merry lil man! Much luv to u and your family!
In a funny post-script to the whole thing, the original poster put up a follow-up pic two days later. As you can see (below), the adorable kid STILL hasn’t taken off that Odell Beckham jersey:
Ha! So funny!
Honestly, we wouldn’t take it off, either. That’s so awesome!!!
OBJ’s Popularity Push
The popular wide receiver has been in the news quite a bit over the past couple years, and not always for the right reasons. For one, he was one of several potential subjects of a lawsuit around that infamous 2018 nightclub attack allegedly involving Younes Bendjima and Drake, though it doesn’t appear the NFLer ended up being implicated.
More recently, he was repeatedly linked to rapper Iggy Azalea, though reports differed on whether the pair were actually heading for a relationship, or just hooking up more casually. He’s also been linked to Amber Rose — and he’s been spotted court side at an NBA game in NYC with Zendaya. All that is to say he’s a VERY popular guy… and very much in-demand!
Anyways, what do U think of this awesome viral video, Perezcious readers?! Doesn’t it just warm the heart to see a kid so happy on Christmas with one simple gift?? So wonderful! Sound OFF with all your reactions and more in the comments (below)!!!
