Now this is what you call #UncleGoals
We don’t have a particularly huge family. But the more I grow older, the more I appreciate the family members I have in my life. We might not always get along, but we don’t always fight, either.
I mean, you’ve only got one family in this life. If you mess up that first impression, you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you to fix it.
That’s why one certain 18-year-old man from Ohio has gone viral for the simple, yet very respectful thing he did for his newborn niece. Whereas I’m sure a lot of people would walk into a hospital with their pajamas on (you know you’ve seen it before), he’s done a little something different. And now the entire Internet is applauding him for this wonderful gesture.
This is something we absolutely need to kick off 2017 right, thanks to one adorable photo a Twitter user posted of her brother dressed to the nines to meet their sister’s newborn baby at the hospital.
Grant Kessler, 18 from Pickering, Ohio, wanted to look as smart as possible as he went to meet his sister Olivia Kessler’s new addition.
The proud uncle said he got dressed up to meet his new niece “because first impressions matter.”
“He was serious enough about it to wear a suit, but I think it was mainly just a joke to calm my sister down before surgery,” Grant’s other sister, Iris Kessler told InsideEdition.com.
“Grant was really excited about meeting her and wanted to make a good impression.”
“My sister was kind of in shock because my brother had joked that he was going to do it but we didn’t know he was serious,” Iris said. “Everyone just thought it was really funny and typical Grant behavior.”
So far the photo has gone viral with will over 41,000 retweets. Grant has gotten a lot of love from the Internet with comments such as, “What a gentlemen. This is the sweetest thing,” along with, “Interviewing for the uncle position.”
What Do You Think?
What a kind, loving and respectful Uncle. His little niece might not know what’s going on, but she will definitely cherish these photos one day.
