No wonder grandparents are so cool!

Aside from that, did you know that 15% of grandparents take care of their grandkids while their parents are at work? They are also very active, and can even learn how to use gadgets just to keep up with their grandkids.

Grandparents cook delicious meals that often become our comfort foods. Children love to cuddle and listen to their grandparent’s stories – all in all, grandparents are the best! Do you agree?

The video starts as Mike, Julie, and two little girls enter the room. Everyone wanted to get a glimpse of the new baby. Julie then settles one of the girls in the room and goes to see her newborn grandson.

She and Mike looked at the sleeping baby, and you got it right, they both said, “awwww.”

Just then, Julie suddenly looked surprised! She saw the baby’s name tag, and she was in shock! She looks to her daughter as if confirming what she saw, and that is when she nudges her husband so he could see it too.

Mike wasn’t prepared when he saw the name tag: Michael Sheff Way.

He gasped in disbelief, and quickly he was flooded with emotion. The sweet old man started crying! You can see it in his reaction – he was happy, surprised, and touched upon seeing that his beautiful grandson was named after him.

Not just that, Jessi did not just name her son “Michael”, she also added her maiden name “Sheff”. As we all know, when a woman gets married, she loses her maiden name.

According to Jessi, she wanted to surprise her father and wanted to keep the name alive.

Mike couldn’t contain it, he cried, and so did Julie. They hugged each other, and that’s when Jessi cried as well.
