A mother has said that her heart ‘burst with love’ as she saw her twin toddlers, who love to squabble, cuddling over the bars of their cot – while she watched them on a baby monitor.

Laura Dalton, 28, from Ellon, Aberdeenshire, had just put 18-month-old brothers Jacob and Noah Cantlay down for their afternoon nap, last week, when she went to see if they’d drifted off to sleep.

Known for their rough-and-tumble play, the mother had expected the boys to be getting up to mischief, but as she gazed at the screen she said her heart ‘burst with love’.

The heart-warming footage shows the two tiny boys leaning on tip toes over the bars of their cots to put their arms round each other in a loving embrace – even pausing to gaze into each other eyes.

Laura said: ‘They have a brilliant bond. This made me burst with love.

‘Because they do fight over toys, it’s lovely to know they love each other. I couldn’t believe it when I saw them hugging on the monitor.

‘They are quite cuddly boys anyway. They’re either wrestling or cuddling – there seems to be no in between. They either want to hug or fight.

‘But when they’ve been fighting all day, it’s great to see [them hugging].’

The identical twins would usually throw toys in and out of each other’s prams for half an hour before finally dozing off.

‘They never normally go to sleep straight away. They’ll romp about in their cots and chuck their teddies from one bed to the other.

‘When I saw them I thought “oh my god, how cute”. I’m quite used to them having a cuddle anyway, but it was the fact they were upstairs on their own.

‘It’s their safe haven in the bedroom. Doing it of their own accord is very sweet.

‘Normally, if Noah is sitting playing with something happily, Jacob will want it. He won’t just want his own ball, he’ll want both of them.’

Laura immediately sent the video of the boys to her fiance Fraser Cantlay (right), 28, who agreed how 'adorable' the special moment between the two brothers was

Laura immediately sent the video of the boys to her fiance Fraser Cantlay, 28, who agreed how ‘adorable’ the special moment between the two brothers was.

She has now vowed to keep hold of it until they’re older to show them whenever they fight.

Laura said: ‘Fraser thought it was adorable too. I sent him the video at work and he said it was a brilliant video.

‘So many people have said it needs to go viral. I’ll save this for when they’re older to show them.

‘In a few years’ time, they’ll be getting up to all kinds of mischief, but they can’t just yet, so they’re cuddling instead.’
