Antonio, who is originally from Texas, is seen immediately welling up at the sight of Alexa's positive pregnancy test.

Alexa added: “I started crying with him.

"We are very close and I was excited to tell him. His reaction made me cry tears of joy.

“Having a bond with your siblings is the best thing ever.”
