A touching video shows a man carefully combing his wife’s hair as she lays sick in a hospital bed.

The elderly couple, believed to be from the US, can be seen sharing the intimate moment in the heartwarming clip, which is earning attention online.

As the man leans over his wife, he chats with her and sweetly points out that she has combed his hair before — but this is the first time he has been able to return the favor.

Love: A man combs his wife’s hair in a hospital in an endearing viral video

‘You used to comb my hair, but I’ve never combed yours before, Nellie,’ the husband says in a Southern accent as she arranges his wife’s short locks around her head. ‘This is the first time for this, you know.’

The elderly woman is sitting up but has her eyes closed and looks unwell, but also appears to be comfortable letting her husband dote on her. 

He is clearly eager to do a good job and make sure he doesn’t miss a spot. While he holds the comb with one hand, he uses his other hand to gently smooth Nellie’s hair in an intimate gesture.

At one point, the husband asks the person who is filming the video to confirm whether he is making Nellie’s hair look better — to which the person replies that he is.

He then asks his wife whether he’s pulling, to make sure that he’s not accidentally hurting her with the comb.

In response, Nellie faintly shakes her head no, indicating that he’s not causing her pain.

The husband then launches into an anecdote about his own father as he continues to meticulously tend to his wife’s hair.
