Meet Charles, The 84-Yr-Old Dancing Grandpa Who Is Stealing Hearts On TikTok.

Charles Mallet is the kind of grandfather every person wants. In fact, he already has millions of fans out there wishing he was their loved one!

The 84-year-old, who has Alzheimer’s, is having the time of his life as an online star! Not only is he a true TikTok master, but he’s also the creator of some of the most wholesome videos on the Internet!

The octogenarian enjoys sharing glimpses of his daily life with the world. From cooking to performing silly lip syncs and dances with his wife and granddaughter Basia, he pretty much does it all!

He and his granddaughter have always shared a close bond. Basia has a TikTok account herself and said that after Charles created one last year, she’s seen a huge difference in him. In fact, making videos has helped him be more active and playful — and has brought the two of them even closer.

“We’re able to bond over cooking and things, we’re able to make cakes, we’re able to just have fun and dance,” Basia told GMA.

Younger fans are also impressed with how Charles stays on top of all the newest trends (with a little help from Basia). He’s participated in multiple challenges, including the popular “Vogue Challenge” below.

But what people adore most about him is how genuine and sweet he is! His love for his family always shines through, and he clearly has a blast with them!
