Teen Iris Kessler was so excited to meet her older sister Olivia’s new baby. But when Iris went to the hospital, she got excited about something else totally unrelated to the birth of the child.
It was what her brother Grant was wearing.

Grant showed up at the hospital to meet his brand new niece wearing a suit and tie–and even a tie clip for good measure. Why, you may ask?
The 18-year-old said, “First impressions matter.”

The next thing Iris knew, her tweet had gone viral, with many people praising and applauding her brother for his effort, some calling him a “gentleman” and even “uncle of the year.”
According to Iris, this is “classic” behavior from her bro.
“He’s always the type to show up to things dressed up, or bring a cake for no reason,” she said.
As she first noticed her tweet getting crazy amounts of attention, she said Grant was trying to play it cool, but she could tell he was “kind of freaking out inside.”
She added, “It’s pretty adorable.”
The best part? It looks like all the adorable effort he put in was worth it.
