Well, this is just delightful.

Three brothers from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, wanted to surprise their mother, Vickie, with a personalised present.

So Matt, Ian, and a third, unnamed brother took 13 old, cherished family photos and re-created the poses for a calendar they gave her for Christmas.

The brothers spent a day re-creating the fun photos – and as their parents still live in the same home they grew up in as a child, it made re-creating the photos a little easier.

Matt told Caters News that because his parents were so great at documenting their childhood, they had a lot of photos to choose from when deciding what photos to replicate.

He said Vickie was thrilled with the end result: "My mum couldn't stop laughing when she first saw it – and then the laughing turned to laugh-crying."

He added: "She texts me every so often to tell me she noticed some new detail in a picture that she hadn't seen before."

Matt and his brothers had no idea the photos would be seen by millions of people when they were first uploaded to Reddit and went viral.

He joked: "We think it's odd 2 million people have seen the three of us in a bathtub as fully grown men."
