The relationship that grandparents and grandchildren share is a special one. Since childhood, grandparents pamper their grandkids and spend a lot of time with them. So, when the grandkids grow up, they still have a lot of love for their grandparents and whenever they get a chance to spend time with them, they make the most of it. In a heartwarming video posted on Reddit, a girlfriend surprises her boyfriend with his grandmother and his response was heartening.
The video begins with the girlfriend keeping her boyfriend's eyes shut and taking him to another room. Once he opens his eyes and turns around, he sees his grandmother. He is surprised and immediately goes and hugs her and starts crying. He keeps saying, "Grandma, I can't believe it." The grandma is also quite emotional meeting her grandchild. She then kisses him and continues to hug him.
The Reddit post has gained over 56k upvotes.
