'Breaking Amish: Brave New World': Abe And His Mother, Mary, Hug For The First Time Ever

Once again, Abe's mom took center stage on the latest episode of "Breaking Amish: Brave New World." With the younger people of the cast having already spent some time outside of their communities, she's truly the one "Breaking Amish" right now. And in this week's episode that meant an unexpected exchange between Mary and her son, Abe.

Thanks to their Amish upbringing, Mary and Abe had never hugged. But Abe wanted to change that.

“Can I give you a hug?” he asked his mother.

She embraced her son and discovered something remarkable. "Abe hugged me for the first time. It makes a person feel really good to hug their kids.”

Abe later described the hug as "weird and awesome at the same time," and said it was something he would do again. It should be interesting to see if Mary decides to go back to her community -- especially if Abe decides not to.

See more special moments with the cast of "Breaking Amish: Brave New World," Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
