Kuwait's Emir, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, is known for being extremely private, rarely ever sharing photos of himself enjoying time with his family. 

But earlier this week, a candid photo of him with all his grandsons went viral on social media. 

The picture was uploaded on Twitter via several local news accounts and was widely circulated on the platform. In it, the ruler of Kuwait can be seen posing while surrounded by the young men.

The now-viral family photo is adorable

And Kuwaiti tweeps are pretty excited about it

To say the least

"I wish I was there when this photo was taken." 

"Ya zein el shyoukh"

"Say Mashallah"

"Not all his grandchildren are in the photo... because we're all his grandkids"

"May God protect our father"
