Well, if that wasn't just the cutest thing we've ever seen!

Kevin Hart accepted the Comedic Genius Award at tonight's MTV Movie Awards and had quite possibly the best speech.

Hart's friend and fellow comedian Jimmy Kimmel kicked things off with an introduction that included its fair share of height jokes. "I'm very happy to be here because it wasn't easy for Kevin—they said Kevin was too small to be a comedy giant," jeered Kimmel. "At night he would go to the comedy clubs and climb up on that stage. Oh, how he would struggle to climb up on that stage."

But, the jokes stopped once Hart took the stage to give his acceptance speech. Instead of going for laughs, he decided to go straight for sensitivity and thank everybody who helped him get to the top of his career. 

"I wanna thank my fiancée for being my rock right now," he told the audience. "I wanna thank my ex-wife for giving me these two kids who are my best friends right now; Heaven for being the most amazing daughter, Hendrix for being the most amazing son. My kids, I'm doing all of this for them. I'm trying to leave a legacy for them. Last but not least my fans—this is for y'all, I love y'all."

See? We told you there'd be tears. Props to you, Kevin.
