Earlier this week, Misty Nicole Knight from Illinois posted this video of her asking the man who raised her, Ryan Farrell, to adopt her. She wrote on Facebook:

Love you with all my heart and can’t wait to be a FARRELL!

In the video, she hands him a gift box with a note attached thanking him for “putting my hair in tight Princess Leia buns” and taking her to rock concerts.

He opens the gift to discover a Superman onesie, some sweets, and a very unexpected surprise at the bottom.

Warning: This video contains a Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoiler, so tread carefully.

God, I’ve been wanting to do that forever.


The clip has been viewed over 34 million times on Facebook, and was even shared by Ellen DeGeneres, who said the video was “just beautiful”.

We couldn’t agree more. Congratulations to this new father-daughter team!
