There is nothing sweeter than a little girl who wants to be a Disney Princess. The way their faces light up at the sight of a pretty dress will melt even the coldest heart.
Dean Evans‘ 3-year-old daughter is no different – she loves Disney Princesses! In fact, she loves them so much she wanted to “go to a ball” with her grandpa. The only problem is that her grandpa is suffering from Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Parkinson’s.
But that wasn’t going to stop this determined girl.
According to Dean, his daughter decided she wanted to go to a ball in the living room with her grandpa and ran to put on one of her Disney Princess dresses (one that lights up!). They turned on the music video for “Beauty and the Beast” and Dean held his father up so the two of them could share a dance.
Dean posted a video of the sweet moment and it has touched millions.
In the video, Dean’s daughter twirls around and seems completely unaware of the fact that her father is holding her grandpa up for her. In fact, she even gets her 66-year-old grandfather to share a smile with her.
It’s hard to decide what to praise Dean for – how great of a dad he is or how wonderful of a son he is. The love he shares with both his own dad and his daughter is clear in the video, and it’s clear this will be a memory the whole family will treasure forever.
Watch the sweet ballroom dance in the video below & be sure to share with anyone who could use a smile today (just remember to warn them to have a pair of tissues handy!).
“*Grab your tissues*My daughter wanted to dance with my dad. She wanted him to go to a ball with her so she grabbed her Disney dress. Melts my heart. My dad has Alzheimer’s and Dementia and Parkinson’s only 66 years old. She is 3. Please share.”
