A Minneapolis couple has created a heartwarming stop-motion video in which a teddy bear awaits the birth of their son and then celebrates when the boy arrives.

A St. Paul Pioneer Press report says the 90-second video has been viewed about 40,000 times on YouTube. Those are modest numbers by Internet standards, but the parents say the points wasn't to create a viral sensation

Chris and Aimee Knutson say they made it for their son, and were nervous about posting it.

It shows a teddy bear celebrating after it sees the positive result of a home pregnancy test. It dances after watching the crib being assembled, and it ends with their newborn son cuddling it.

Chris Knutson says he was probably inspired subconsciously by "Toy Story."
