Cubs Fan Learns He’s About to Be a Grandpa (Video)

emotional cubs grandpa

This one might seem like a stretch for a sports site, but what better excuse to write about an emotional video of a guy learning he’s going to be a grandfather than the fact that he’s wearing a Cubs jacket?

It would be more convenient for our purposes if the guy went on to win an impromptu slam dunk contest or something, but once you see the video you’ll appreciate that I showed it to you anyway.

The video comes from a Reddit user, who posted it here with the following heading, which just makes it even more touching:

“Told my dad he is going to be a grandpa I am his only child and my mother passed away 20 years ago. He has been asking us for grandchildren since our wedding night. I think he is happy. :)”

The Cubs fan and soon-to-be grandfather’s face explodes with joy once he figures out the news, then he starts crying, then whoever’s watching the video starts crying, and the cycle continues until everyone in the world is watching this video and crying. At least, that’s one possible outcome.

Here’s the video:
