Deaf baby hears her mother's voice for the first time

The heart-warming moment a deaf baby heard the voice of her mother for the very first time has been caught on camera.

Lexi Daniella, from Richmond, Virginia, who has been unable to hear properly since she was born three months ago, was given hearing aids.

Despite being confused when the gadgets squeaked as they were placed on her ears, they instantly worked - and the results were 'incredible'.

The infant, known as 'Dani', quickly adjusted to her newly-found hearing capabilities and can be seen beaming from ear to ear.

Being called a beautiful girl by her mother, Francisca Umana, roused an infectious smile from Dani - who became transfixed to her voice.

Ms Umana, whose age is unknown, said: 'It was such an incredible moment to see her smiling and responding to my voice. 

'She'll cry now when she hears loud noises, and sometimes even when I talk to her. 

'Our family was so overwhelmed when we showed them the video, many of them couldn't hold back the tears.'
