Photo of woman meeting great-grandchild brings joy, over a million views
The photo received more than 1.5 million views in less than 24 hours after the woman's grandson posted it online.
A first-time father decided to share a photo of his 92-year-old grandmother meeting his daughter, to bring happiness to others, and the Internet responded with more than a million views.
Scott Martin, 32, of Washington is an avid Reddit user and decided to post the photo of his grandmother’s first visit with his two-day old child Penelope late last week to “bring some joy to some people,” Buzzfeed reported.
Martin described the experience as “beautiful” to the online outlet.
“They got to have some good eye contact time and it was a special moment for all of us,” he said.
It was also a significant experience because Monday was his grandmother’s 71st wedding anniversary, according to Buzzfeed, and she had just lost her husband in August.
In addition to Reddit, Martin also posted the photo to Imgur, where it’s garnered 1.7 million views so far, 1.5 of those in less than 24 hours.
The same baby went viral earlier this year, when her mother put a video on YouTube of her “clapping” in the womb while her parents sang “If You're Happy And You Know It Clap Your Hands.“
