Is this narration authentic?

Sayyiduna Usamah ibn Zayd (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says: “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would place me on his thighs and put Hasan ibn ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) on his other thigh, and then embrace us and say, ‘O Allah! Be Merciful to them, as I am merciful to them.”
