Would-be grandpa reacts to big news

WASHINGTON — The video of a man whose daughter gives him the news that he’s going to be a grandfather for the first time, has gone viral. And for good reason: his reaction is emotional and truly ‘feel-good’ if all the comments and re-posts are any indication.

According to his daughter, identified as Jessica Hickey, in her initial posting on Reddit.com on Friday, “Told my dad he is going to be a grandpa I am his only child and my mother passed away 20 years ago. He has been asking us for grandchildren since our wedding night. I think he is happy. :)”
