The video was posted by Twitter user @freakingdani, who said in a tweet that the cute clip was sent to her by her aunt who just got back from South Africa. She also added a crying emoji because, well, it’s just so damn sweet.
The video shows the cute couple walking in the sand for a bit, and then pausing to gaze into each other’s eyes. For a split second, the way their heads come together almost forms a little heart.
It’s just all too much.
The tweet has received more than 200,000 likes and 70,000 retweets. Everyone seems to be in love with their love.

The woman who posted the video seemed a little taken aback by the video going viral.

African Penguins are monogamous and return to the same site year after year, so with some luck, we’ll eventually get to see a video of these two walking along with their grandchicks.
