A few days ago, a young Nigerian lady who had a son out of wedlock shared a heartwarming video of her father bonding with the child (Pictured above).
According to the lady, her dad who is pastor had previously said that he will be very disappointed if she had a child outside of marriage and will not be involved.
Her father’s stand however changed as she shared heartwarming videos of him bonding with his grandchild.
When it comes to their grandchildren, grandparents are always friendly and sweet. In their eyes, the little ones can do no wrong.
You start to wonder if the same parent who raised you is also the same one who wears matching clothes with your kids, spoils them with treats, and scolds you for scolding them when they misbehave. All in all, it’s so nice to see.
Some women who got pregnant out of wedlock or at a young age took to Twitter to share stories of how their children became best friends with their grandparents.
Below is the tweet that started the conversation.

See some of the responses below:
Mom was LIVID. Dad was disappointed but VERY supportive. Child was besties with dad. Mom was still icy but came around & now inseparable with her grandson, a fav for both of them. Word of advice though, if you do have different parenting styles, move out as soon as u can.
This is me. My mom was so mad, her BP shot up. Sometimes she’d just be quiet and not speak to me for days. Almost threw me out. But now, she won’t even let me discipline my child. She gets visibly bored when he goes away for the weekend.
@Denhle: My dad said I should leave and go where I got that belly, my brother asked that I leave the next week. My mum said I should apologize to my dad and since then my dad too care of me and my son until his last dying day. They were best friends who liked matching outfits.
