The child immediately threw the book down and let out a scream, followed by the words: I don't want to be a sister," before asking whether her parents were having a baby.

The child broke into an emotional meltdown as she expressed that she didn't want a baby because she felt her parents would stop loving her.

"You're not gonna love me anymore... I don't know why I said I want a baby, I made a mistake...Will you still love me? Every video I watched, they don’t love the older child," the tearful girl can be heard saying in the video.

The mother can be seen trying her best to soothe and calm her daughter, who made it clear she was not ready for this major family change.
