The U.K. woman has shared a special bond with her grandma and grandpa since she was a little girl. In fact, she calls them her favorite humans. And over the years, that bond has only strengthened — especially with her grandpa, who just took care of his granddaughter in the sweetest way.
Ayla recently underwent surgery, and her grandparents came to help out during her hospital stay. But it was her grandpa who really went above and beyond to make her feel comfortable and cared for. Ayla uploaded a video of the adorable moment to Twitter, melting the hearts of millions. Here’s what she had to say about her grandpa’s sweet gesture.
“My grandparents came to look after me after my surgery and my grandad told me he wanted to make me feel better, he told me he’s been painting my nan’s nails for 30 years and that he wanted to paint mine and I needed to share this.”
In the video that’s since gone viral, we see Ayla’s grandpa carefully coating each of her nails with polish as she lies in a hospital bed. He’s so concentrated on what he’s doing you can tell he wants it to be perfect.
At one point, Ayla’s grandma tries to get his attention, to which he says, “I have an important job at the moment.” Could he be any sweeter?
But, as Ayla pointed out, her grandpa adores his wife just as much. “He also worships my nan and is her personal photographer, what more could a woman want in life?????”
As you can imagine, the internet absolutely lost it… in the best way possible. People fell in love with the old man, reflecting on how much they care about and miss their own grandparents. The consensus was clear: grandmas and grandpas are national treasures who need to be cherished.
If your grandparents are still around, let this story serve as a reminder to pay them regular visits. It’s sure to brighten their days — and yours as well.
