Prominent YouTuber Oliver Potter has shared a heartwarming video in which he discusses what love means with his five-year-old brother, Alfie.

“If you’re a mum and you want to be in love with a dad, you get in love with them,” Alfie responds when asked about the subject.

Oliver then poses the questions: “How would it make you feel if I married a man?”

The adorable five-year-old excitedly covers his mouth with his hands as he looks up at his older sibling.

“If you marry a man it’s going to be so cool… I saw in one movie a man was in love with another man and everyone was saying ‘cool’ in that video. Cool, cool, cool, cool!”

Alfie then looks at the camera knowingly and says, “Love is love. Love is love”.

Another said: “I have yet to come out to my siblings. I have an older brother, and a younger stepsister. I hope they are as cool as your little brother.”

Potter has thanked his viewers for all the “love in the air” and noted that Alfie is now determined to start his own Youtube channel following the popularity of the video.

In an interview with the Mirror, Potter said he hopes the clip serves as an inspiration to the LGBT+ community.

“I hope it gives people courage to open up the conversation with their friends, siblings, children or whoever they choose.

“Since Alfie has known I’m gay he has been as loving as always. He has even been to school and told his friends that his brother would marry a man.”
