Man’s Wife Dies Tragically—20 Yrs Later, His Daughter Reveals a Secret That Just WRECKS Him

Jessica Vigansky’s mom died 20 years ago. Amidst the immeasurable grief from the loss of his wife, her father had to step up and raise her all by himself. Though the last couple of decades had been lonely and challenging as a single dad, this special man is about to have a dream come true that he’s desired ever since his daughter’s wedding: to be a grandpa!!

And his viral reaction with 18 million views and counting is the stuff of pregnancy reveal DREAMS.


Jessica shared these touching words on Reddit: “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. :)”

Let’s just say “happy” was an understatement.

It went a little something like this…

Daughter: “Hey Dad, open this cute yellow box.”

Dad: “Aww, cute little pacifier [slight confusion sets in with feigned amusument]. Looks like something you used to have.”  


“Holy crap. This is NOT just about a pacifier.” 


Soon-to-be grandpa enters euphoric state equivalent to kid-in-a-candy-store sighting a glittery pink unicorn. 


Reality starts to sink in that soon-to-be grandpa is actually SOON TO BE A GRANDPA. Tears ensue. 


Grandpa Just. Can’t. EVEN. 


And that’s pretty much a wrap. Talk about a baby reveal for the record books! Share this with your friends if you’re as stoked for this proud papaw as we are!!
