A bond between a great-grandfather and a great-granddaughter can't be better than this. In a heart-warming TikTok video by @breedukz, a great-grandparent is seen helping his great-granddaughter walk. He can be seen using a walker and the great-granddaughter walks in front of him holding the walker. They slowly go from one room to another, taking a round. They both seem calm and happy. The video has an overlay text which reads, "Your grandpa didn't think he'd live enough to meet his great-granddaughter but he helped her learn how to walk." One sure can't find a video as sweet as this on the internet today.
The video went viral with over 2.9 million views. It is captioned, "Seeing my grandparents become great-grandparents is a true blessing." @niki_baroff commented, "The most precious thing I've seen in a long while - what a beautiful memory to have documented." @lomofoto wrote, "I'm glad my grandad got to meet my daughter. He'd walk her to all the neighbors when we visited so he could show her off." @moriik expressed, "Precious moments to look by." @lisas0620 pointed out, "Brought me to tears reminds of lovely late grandad. Treasure him." @alextikium commented, "Great granddads are precious. I was blessed to know my great-grandma. She loved me so dearly. She passed when she was 86 and I was 12 years old."
Brianna, Jeri's granddaughter, was the one who posted the video on TikTok. She told Newsweek, "It was a very emotional moment that made my heart so full.” “Their bond is very special. Ocean loves to go on walks with him and steal his newspaper,” as reported by ScaryMommy. She also shared that when her daughter took her first steps, Jeri was happy for Ocean. “She took her first steps on Christmas morning and he was ecstatic. He was so surprised at how fast she grew up!”
In another adorable story about a grandfather and granddaughter, a 5-year-old Austyn asked her grandpa to her father-daughter dance. A clip by the girl's mother, Kelsey Woolverton, promised to show everyone how much fun they had together. Austyn's father, Michael, had died of a fentanyl overdose when she was only 18 months old. “She doesn’t have memories of him, but from the very beginning we have talked about him,” Woolverton said. So, Austyn decided to ask her grandfather, Steve Guenther, to be her date for the dance. Her mom told grandpa in advance so he could be available.
In the video, Austyn says to her grandfather softly, "There’s Valentine’s Day dancing." But we need our dad to go." She added, "My dad’s not going to go. Will you go with me?" Her grandfather agreed. "She is usually not that emotional about her father's passing, and so it just kind of struck us all with surprise that she eloquently asked him that way," mom Kesley Woolverton said. "I had no idea she would put that together—that she needed her dad to go—but he wouldn’t be there," Woolverton added.
The day came and Austyn was all set to go for the event with her grandpa. She got her make-up and hair done. Her grandfather matched her with a red tie and she had tiny hearts on her dress and red shoes. “Their bond is like nothing I have ever seen before. They are like best friends,” Woolverton said. Guenther is happy that he could at least be there when she needs a father figure. “I feel blessed that Austyn and I have this bond and I can be there for her when her dad can’t,” he said.
