Baby on Board: Mother-in-Law Left Speechless at First Sight of Grandson

Little Bowen and his grandmother have really hit it off over the past year, mom Haley Farmer’s TikTok shows. That’s hardly surprising, given that it was love at first sight when they had a surprise meeting last summer.

Video from last year that’s gone viral again on TikTok shows the surprise of a lifetime for Farmer’s mother-in-law after she and her partner became “parents overnight” thanks to a successful adoption.

Farmer told Storyful they were on a waiting list with an adoption agency in July last year when they got the “devastating news” that it was closing. “With this news we just knew it was going to be a long time before we had a baby in our arms,” she said.

Much to her surprise, however, Farmer then got a call to say they were going to get a baby “the next day”.

With the precious cargo on board, Haley said she “showed up at my mother-in-law’s and told her to come out and look at my new car. She had a huge surprise in the backseat.”
