I froze for a second because I literally didn’t know what to do!” she said.

Stephanie told ABC: ‘I was in shock. I was like, “No way. My mind is playing games with me. It wasn’t like anything strange for him, it was so weird.” Luckily the quick-thinking mother took her phone out to capture the unique moment.
