(WTVR) – Remember little Mateo? He’s the three-year-old boy whose argument with his mother over cupcakes went viral this month.

Mateo’s mom said he loves to argue — about shoes, cupcakes, pretty much everything.

This week Mateo and his mom appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where Ellen surprised the child with a display of super hero cupcakes. Ellen also had a big surprise for Mateo’s mother. A surprise so big, it brought the mother to tears.
