Sometimes kids end up doing things that might appear cute at first but it can have a different kind of impact on others. When they are young, the kids often fancy each other and end up proposing with toys or in this case, a possibly real diamond ring. Allie Phillips, who goes by @.allie.phillips on TikTok, shared a hilarious yet shocking story of how her 6-year-old daughter already has two suitors vying for her attention.
The mom started by describing how a little boy has gone to great lengths to make it obvious that he is fond of her daughter. The six-year-old is already going through a rollercoaster of emotions and dilemmas at a young age when it comes to choosing between the perfect boys for herself. "Buckle in. This is hilarious," Phillips said at the beginning of her video. Her daughter's boyfriend or more appropriately her kindergarten buddy is still with her in her first-grade class.
The daughter was really excited that her boyfriend Brandon was in her class, saying things like how they were in love and would get married when they grew up. But the sweet and innocent love story faced an abrupt hurdle. "One day she came home and said, 'I need to tell you something. Mom, you need to sit down,'" the mom said, barely succeeding at holding her laughter. Phillips' daughter went on to explain how a little boy named Trevor had approached her during recess and gifted her an actual diamond ring.
So, the 6-year-old dumped Brandon and became Trevor's girlfriend all because "he rolled up with a ring." Phillips continued to crack up as she narrated the rest of the fiasco and showed the audience an expensive-looking ring that the little boy had obtained from somewhere. It seems the first-grader girl is learning that her love language is definitely receiving gifts. Her daughter could not tell her where Trevor got the ring from as the little boy claimed that he "buys it all the time."
Phillips was determined to return the expensive bling to its rightful owner. She went on to post pictures of the ring in her daughter's school group on Facebook and asked around if anyone had a boy named Trevor in first grade. The little Romeo's mom finally stepped forward to reveal that the ring belonged to Trevor's great-grandmother who was alive and lives in Alabama. Trevor had apparently swooped the ring for his class crush when the family went to visit Alabama.
Phillips quickly made the arrangements to ship the ring away to its owner. The TikTok community was dying to get an update on this first-grade love triangle as they flooded the comment section with curious remarks. Some people pitied poor Brandon who was probably heartbroken. @tracynbt joked: "Update! Great Gram leaves the ring to Trevor and 20 years from now he gives it to her again! For keeps this time."

They got married 23 years later." @granna_2_5 added a story: "When I was 8 I gave my Daddy’s wedding ring to the boy next door. I got busted when his momma brought it back and gave it to my mom."
In an update video, the mom notified her viewers that her daughter's name is Adalie and the ring has safely made it back to its owner. Adalie's story got famous enough and she even got interviewed by a local news channel on her first-grade love triangle scenario. Turns out, diamonds are a girl's best friend after all.
