The bond between a mum and her baby is the strongest in the universe – and if proof were needed, here is the most heartwarming example we've ever set our teary eyes on.

In this wonderful video, a newborn baby emerges from his or her mum's belly and then clings onto her face for dear life as a nurse tries to take him away to be cleaned.

The tiny baby has a huge pair of lungs on him or her as it screams and nuzzles the drowsy mum's face after having a Caesarean section.

After several failed attempts to remove the baby, the nurses let it cling on to its mother, who eventually opens her eyes and smiles at the camera.

Although the identities of mother and child are unknown, the voice in the back of the video - which has been viewed 2 million times - suggests they are Spanish or Portuguese.
