An adorable moment between two toddlers who ran into an embrace on a New York sidewalk has warmed hearts across the internet.

Two-year-olds Maxwell and Finnegan are best friends and inseparable, according to Maxwell’s dad, Michael Cisneros.

Finnegan then shows Maxwell his toy before the pair start chasing each other and laughing on the sidewalk.

“They are always super excited to see each other, even if they’ve only been apart for a day or two,” Mr Cisneros told the Huffington Post.

He added that they share “food, clothes, toys, everything”.

In his original post on Facebook, Mr Cisneros said: “This is just so beautiful. If we could all be like this.”

It has since been shared 1,500 times and received over 1,200 reactions.

US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex shared the video on Monday alongside a loveheart-face emoji.
