WATCH: Mother goes swimming with daughter in the sea but doesn’t expect THIS to happen
Posing for the camera with one of her daughters the woman was oblivious to what was swimming up behind her.
Clearly enjoying her time at the beach, she grabbed her daughter and kissed her on the lips.
But just seconds later she noticed something strange emerge from the water.
It becomes apparent that the dark object floating up behind her is a man – dressed in full military uniform.
The man is wearing scuba diving equipment, and at first the woman thinks it’s just someone who’s lost their way.
But the man doesn’t swim away.
He proceeds to take off his mask and the woman has to double take when she realises who it is.
She suddenly lets go of her daughter and backs away slightly in the water.
Once she believes who it really is, she gasps and holds her hand over her mouth in shock.
It doesn’t take long before she swims up to him however, and the pair share a warm embrace.
It becomes clear the strange man dressed in scuba gear and full uniform is her partner.
The cute clip was uploaded to image sharing site Imgur and has had more than 3.7 million views.

Some users required further explanation.
One said: “I really wonder how he knew it was her.”
Another user joked: “Not the seal I was expecting.”
