82-Year-Old Man Paints His Granddaughter's Nails While She Recovers From Massive Operation
Grandparents are absolutely precious and constant beacons of light in our lives - should we be lucky to still have them around.
No, I'm not crying, you're crying...
Ayla Winter-White took to Twitter yesterday (Thursday, 1st August) to share the heart-warming moment with her 82-year-old grandfather Keith after she had the left side of her pelvis reconstructed.
In considerable pain post-op, she revealed her adorable grandad offered to paint her nails with a Mavala polish in Duchess Rose after he and her grandmother came to look after her.

Captioning the adorable video, she penned: "My grandparents came to look after me after my surgery and my grandad told me he wanted to make me feel better, 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.
"'How many coats do you have on?'"
In the short clip, which is accompanied with the caption "the actual love of my life" across it, granddad Keith explains to her grandmother, who was looking for their car keys, to give him a second as he claims "I've got an important job at the moment" while painting Ayla's nail.
This is the best thing I will see on the internet today. Maybe for the rest of my life. Just adorable. 'I've got a very important job at the moment' Yes gramps!
