The choice to have a child, no matter how you choose to do it, is a big one. It's something that a lot of people talk over with those around them who they trust, and usually, that includes their own parents. But if you can keep it to yourself, just showing up with a grandkid one day is probably the best surprise ever if your parents have been looking forward to being promoted to grandparents.

That seems to be exactly what this man on TikTok did. He adopted a baby solo, and he didn't tell anyone in his life, including his mom, until the adoption was complete, leading to the sweetest video ever. 

In the video, we can see him hand the baby over to his mom as he tells her that he adopted. Watching the expression on his mom's face change as she realized it was her grandchild she was holding is just too sweet.

"When I say we didn’t tell anyone I mean MAJORITY of people did not know until the day of his birth," Dad wrote in his caption. "And of course didn’t fully tell anyone until a month or so after. I loved having him to myself and selfishly keeping his arrival as intimate as possible." 

Commenters were blown away by witnessing this moment, and one managed to pinpoint the reason he kept it a secret.

"Adopting a baby can be a process and for a period of time afterwards the birth mom can change her mind. I understand why!" one person wrote, to which the OP replied, "That part!" 

This single dad is doing a beautiful thing — and it looks like he has the support from one excited grandma, too.
