First, Mom gave the man a playful smack for not letting her know ahead of time. Then, she drew him into a big, warm hug! Only one thing could possibly top this mother’s joy at finally seeing her son after two decades, and that was meeting her grandchild for the first time.

“Here, I got you a baby,” joked Gordon, handing his daughter over to her grandma. Of course, she immediately fell in love with the little cutie-pie!
