"POV: Telling your stepdad you named your son after him," Nelson mentioned in the caption. At the beginning of the video, the stepfather arrives at the hospital room to visit his stepdaughter who has recently given birth to a baby boy. Brimming with a smile, he approaches the new mom and gently kisses her hand. So far, he has no clue about what is going to happen next. So, when Nelson breaks the touching news to him, the man instantly breaks into tears. "These Memories," by Hollow Coves playing in the background perfectly matched the emotional vibe of the situation. The stepdad got so overwhelmed that seeing him cry left the stepdaughter bawling tears of joy too. It was a mix of joy and pride for the stepfather to receive this heartwarming surprise.

Job well done," reassured @tayflexx. "It’s your consoling little thumb stroke as he sobs that’s done me in. So much love for each other!" added @caitlinpobi.
