A man’s reaction to learning he was going to be a grandfather for the first time has gone viral.
Jessica Hickey told ABC News her father has been asking for grandchildren since she got married.
To announce the news to her father, Hickey and her husband presented him with a gift-wrapped box that contained a pacifier and note inside.
Upon opening the box, Hickey’s father is seen laughing and reminiscing that she also used to take a pacifier similar to the one in the box.
At his daughter’s urging, he read a small note attached announcing her pregnancy. Disbelief and tears quickly covered his face.
In an online post, Hickey wrote she is an only child and that her mother passed away 20 years ago.
She told ABC News, her father, who is in his 50s, is unaware of new-found fame thanks to the viral video, which has been viewed more than 200,000 times.
The baby is due later this year.
