Having a baby is a milestone not just for parents, but for the rest of the family too. Who can forget the feeling of revealing your newborn for the first time?

This moment, captured during the first meeting of 92-year-old great grandma Millie Martin and two-day-old Penelope, has parents everywhere issuing a collective “awww!!!”

The photo was taken over the weekend, just one month following the passing of Millie’s husband and WWII veteran, Dean. Thanks to user Fishtails on Reddit, the image has warmed the hearts of many surfing the web.

For kids, parents, grandparents and great grandparents alike, Millie and Penelope are a reminder of the magic between the oldest generation and the newest.

Did you capture any magical first meetings on camera? We’d love to see them! #redtricycle on Facebook and Instagram.
