*A grandmother in North Carolina thought she was on another long-distance video call with her daughter’s family when all of a sudden … “they’re right outside!”
Rebecca Cowles, 57, from North Wilkesboro, hadn’t seen her daughter, Nacole, 41, and four of her grandchildren in 18 months because they live in Florida. She got a big surprise when during their video chat, the group pulled into her driveway.
“Oh my baby!” Cowles screamed while running into her grandson’s arms. Rebecca also met for the first time Nacole’s youngest child, Mayshiana, born during the pandemic, which had caused Nacole to avoid travel while pregnant.
Watch the surprise reunion below:
