The first few moments of a newborn baby’s life are usually filled with wailing and disorientation – but not for little Ágata Ribeiro Coêlho.

Brenda Coêlho de Souza (24) had her baby Ágata via C-section in Santa Monica hospital in Brazil recently and nothing could’ve prepared her for the incredible moment she would have with her daughter upon meeting her for the first time.

In a video taken shortly after the tot’s birth, tiny Agata is placed on her adoring mother’s chest – and the connection was instant.

In the clip, Ágata appears to lovingly embrace her mother's cheek as the medical team looks on in awe.

"It was an incredible moment when my daughter hugged me for the first time,”

Brenda said. "The medical team were great and were all really surprised that she acted this way, they couldn't believe how affectionate she was with me,” the administrative assistant added.

"Ágata is now three months old and is doing great, every day is a surprise and I love being a mother."
