Cupcake Kid


If you still haven't seen the video of the adorable 3-year-old boy begging his mom for a cupcake and saying things like "Listen, Linda" and "Linda, honey!", then stop what you're doing immediately and go watch it.

So the kid in the video, Mateo Beltran, and his mother, Linda, took the Internet by storm and quickly got a famous fan in Ellen DeGeneres. She loved the video so much that she invited Mateo and Linda onto her show to talk about their brush with fame. And of course, it wouldn't be an Ellen episode without some emotional giveaways.

Of course Ellen had to finally give Mateo cupcakes, but he didn't just get one boring cupcake. Since Mateo is a superhero fan, Ellen gave him an entire tower of cupcakes with Batman and Spider-Man décor. But she didn't stop there.

She also gave Linda a gift certificate for a weekend spa retreat (because every mom needs that), and once Ellen found out that Linda and her husband, Kenneth, are living with her parents while he goes back to school, Ellen and Shutterfly presented Linda with a gift that moved her to tears.

Watch the video below and fall in love with Mateo all over again:
