This coming out video will really warm your heart…
If you’ve never heard of Oliver Potter before, he’s been vlogging for over two years and his five-year-old half-brother Alfie often has a starring role. In their latest video, Oliver and Alfie chat about love and what would happen if Oliver ever married a man. The reaction from Alfie is so incredibly pure it made us audibly squeal.
“How do you think about love?” Oliver asks candidly.
“If you’re a mum and you want to be in love with a dad, you get in love with them,” Alfie replies.
“So how would it make you feel if I married a man?” Oliver continues.
Without hesitation, Alfie responds: “If you marry a man, it’s going to be so cool. I saw in one movie a man was in love with another man and everyone was saying ‘cool’!”

The brothers continue to chat about love and having babies. “Are you okay with the fact if I marry a man?” Oliver asks.
“Yes,” Alfie replies. “Love means love! You can be what you wanna be!”
“My brother’s reaction made me realise what a kind and gentle soul he is,” Oliver said of the video.
Reactions from viewers have also been overwhelmingly positive. “You are an amazing big brother,” one commenter wrote. Another added: “He talks well beyond his age… If only everyone was like that.”
