Pregnancy reveals are usually filled with emotions from parents, but a mom from Thailand had a different reaction after learning her daughter was expecting.
TikTok user @jackkiechann89 posted a now-viral clip of her parents’ reaction to her pregnancy news after the expecting woman sent a scratch card revealing the massage.
The video focused on the dad scratching the card while the mom sat beside him with a straight face. Clearly, the father was over the moon as he read the words:
“You’re going to be a nanny and grandad again.”
However, the mom’s face remained the same throughout the clip, even when the father gave a thumbs-up reaction at the camera and commended his daughter for getting pregnant again.
In addition, when the proud father asked if his wife was happy, she bluntly and awkwardly replied, “no,” still without batting an eye at the camera.
As seen in the clip, the father with Alzheimer’s was shocked with teary eyes, showing how happy he was for his daughter.
In the comments section, Jackkie explained that she understood her mom’s reaction because of her parents’ present circumstances during the pandemic.
Currently, they are both stuck in Thailand amidst the lockdown and cannot see their grandchildren. Her mom most especially gets upset because she wants to see her grandson.
Despite her explanation, many TikTok users were not happy with the mom’s reaction. One person shared their sentiments in the comments section:
“This is awful:( I’d be devastated if my mum reacted in that way. Bless your dad though sweetheart .”
Another user pointed out how the dad quickly switched the camera off after the mom’s awkward reaction. Despite the diverse set of comments, everyone congratulated Jackkie with her new blessing.
A similar story recently surfaced on the internet when a senior dad with Alzheimer’s reacted to his daughter’s pregnancy news. However, he was nothing like Jackkie’s mom when it came to emotions.
Olivia Salza shared the video of her dad in the hospital when she finally told him the news after a three-year infertility issue. As seen in the clip, her father was shocked with teary eyes, showing how happy he was for his daughter.
The comments section was immediately flooded with touching words from kind people who were moved by the TikTok video. Among them was a user who wished he were a parent.
Salza’s post has since gone viral with over two million views, 600,000 likes, and thousands of comments. The expecting mom also shared follow-up videos, updating her followers of her dad’s condition.
