New Grandpa Can’t Stop Crying Over The Reveal Of His Grandson’s Name.

Close up of a man sitting as he holds a newborn. While one arm holds the baby, with the man’s other hand, he covers his mouth, his face red and his eyes full of happy tears. His daughter can be partially seen as she sits next to him and leans closer, smiling wide.

Choosing a name for your child is no easy task. People spend countless hours researching and making lists in order to narrow down their choice to the one that’s perfect for their little one. For Carly Kriser of Utah, that decision was made easier thanks to her Dad. Why? Because she named her son after him!

Best of all, her Dad had no idea! In a video capturing the moment, Dad can be seen, quite literally, skipping for joy as he enters the room to see his grandson. While holding him, Carly and others inform him that they’ve settled on a name. Not only that, but his birth certificate was officially in the process of being made, meaning their choice was truly locked in. The name? Lawson Leonard Kriser.

“What?” Dad said in response. “Are you serious?”

Once it was confirmed that she was very much serious, Dad burst into tears, all while holding the precious little one who shares his name.

“One of the most special moments of my life,” Carly wrote when sharing the moment online.
