This is the heartwarming moment a nine-year-old autistic boy broke down in tears after his mother brought him his first McDonald’s since the start of lockdown.

His mom, Mum Wati, filmed herself showing her son Adam Bin Mohammad Irwan, 9, the McDonald’s takeout on May 18.

Before she purchases the food, she sits in the car explaining the idea in mind, saying: “Hello guys. I’m [getting] McDonald’s. It’s a surprise!”

At the outset Adam thinks his mum is playing a prank.

‘I thought you wanted to scare me,’ he said, before giving his mom a hug, who is quick to reassure him.

The fast-food giant was forced to close as Singapore endured weeks under lockdown as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

‘I didn’t want to scare you! I wanted to surprised you. Look, what is it?’ she said

‘McDonald’s,’ he said.

Adam is then filmed eating some chicken nuggets. At one point he puts one of the nuggets up to his face as if to hug it.

He is heard thanking his mother through tears, delighted to see his favourite meal and overcome by the situation.

She added that McNuggets with fries and ice cream was Adam’s favourite meal.

She also said that her son has sensory sensitivity and mild autism that caused his ‘overreaction.’

Wati later shared the video to Facebook, where it has been viewed over 73,000 times with one person saying: “This boy’s genuine reaction is enough to move anyone’s heart.”
