Ayla Winter-White just blessed the internet with some pure grandparent content. She posted a video of her grandpa Keith painting her nails for her.

“My grandparents came to look after me after my surgery and my grandad told me he wanted to make me feel better,” Winter-White wrote on Twitter, along with the video of grandpa Keith carefully painting each of her nails. “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.”

Winter-White told the Daily Dot that her grandfather started painting her grandmother’s nails after she developed severe arthritis and couldn’t do it herself. After Winter-White ended up getting pelvic reconstruction surgery and couldn’t walk anywhere to get them done, grandpa Keith put the nail painting skills he’s acquired to action.

“I didn’t even have to ask,” Winter-White said. “Bless him.”

Winter-White, who is from London, has received an outpouring of support and appreciation for her doting grandpa content.

“Whewwwwww do you see why it’s important we start families with good men? It isn’t just about us but how they’ll treat the other women in his life. This was just so beautiful,” one Twitter user commented.

As of right now, the post has been liked and shared over one million times on Twitter, which means its viral viral.

Winter-White also shared some more aspects of grandpa Keith’s life with the internet. Grandpa Keith is not only a super supportive grandparent and husband, but he also seems to be an “Old Town Road” stan.

“The amount of messages I’ve got, hearing people’s own stories and sharing their own photos has touched my heart just as much as my video has touched theirs,” Winter-White said.
