A 3-year-old boy who told his mom "Listen, Linda" when arguing for a cupcake in a viral video got his wish and more after Ellen DeGeneres invited him and his mom on the show Tuesday.

The video shows Matthew Beltran lecturing his mother, whom he refers to as "Linda" and "Honey," on why he deserves a cupcake, despite her revelation that he went behind her back to "grandma." It has received nearly 5 million views.

The mother and son, better known as Mateo, appeared on DeGeneres' show Tuesday and were treated to a mountain of cupcakes. Mom also received a weekend spa treatment and a check for $10,000 from photo service Shutterfly.

At one point, Degeneres asked why Mateo calls her "Linda" rather than Mommy.

"Linda comes from debating, for like a cupcake," Beltran said. "I'm usually mommy. But when he's serious and really wants to get his point across, then we become Linda or Kenneth. Dad becomes Kenneth as well."

This isn't Mateo's first YouTube video. Beltran has posted other videos that feature titles such as "Mateo is upset," "Mateo singing," "Mateo makes lunch," and "Boys ride home rocking to KISS."
